Student Spotlight – Madison

Every month, we feature one of our lovely students for our spotlight. It is always a tough decision because all of our students are wonderful. We consider dedication, effort, attitude, and in this case epic hair flips.  For the month of September, we are featuring Madison!  She inspires all of us with her lovely lines and toe point which suggest a true love for dance. Madison has been taking 4 or 5 classes per week, and arrives early with a smile that lights up the studio. Her progression has been outstanding, and we are grateful to have her in our Aradia family.

Hometown

I am from Calgary originally, moved to Bragg Creek then London, Ontario for 3 years now I reside in Okotoks. 🙂 I consider Bragg Creek as my “Hometown” growing up.

Favourite pastime (outside of pole)

My favourite past time other than pole is Latin Dancing. I LOVE performing with my Latin Dance team BachataKiz. I love all the styles including: Bachata, Kizomba, Cha Cha, Salsa and more!

What do you love most about pole?

I love how much pole pushes me mentally and physically. How every class I can see the changes in my strength and confidence.

What keeps you motivated to come to your pole classes consistently?

I don’t even know how to describe it! I guess I would say it’s an outlet and another form of dance for me that pushes my body more than the gym or dance practice does. It’s also really nice to see the changes in my strength and the difference each class as I learn new moves.

What surprised you about pole dance and fitness?

I knew pole required a lot of physical strength but I didn’t really know until my first class! I also didn’t think I’d fall in love with it so fast!

Why should someone join Aradia Fitness Calgary and start pole today?

I think if you want to learn pole this is the studio to go to! They’re very professional, kind, organized and you feel safe learning new moves and supported through your pole journey regardless of your level or experience. Very satisfied!
