As an aerialist moving from another state and searching for a new studio, I was worried I wouldn't find one I'd fit into. I found SOUL online and decided to give their level 2 lyra class a go. My last studio was like a family so I was worried I wouldn't find that again but I luckily was proven wrong. From the get go I was greeted with a smile and a short tour. Ryan, the instructor made a point to meet me as soon as she walked in. All the students were so welcoming and kind and I felt instantly part of the group. On top of the vibe, the place is clean and has plenty of equipment. It is a really neat place and I can't wait to go back.
Kat discovered pole dancing in 2006 and found that it was the one true exercise she could maintain while providing a touch of sparkle. She has mixed the elements of strength, flexibility, and shimmer since the age of 12 as a synchronized swimmer, competing both locally and nationally. Cross training provides an essential foundation for Kat's technique. In 2013, Kat started traveling across the country to train with pole superstars, bringing the tips and tricks she learned along the way back to Richmond, Virginia. She was awarded the bronze medal for the 2014 Atlantic Pole Championships Level 4 Entertainment division and she loves bringing out the inner artiste in every student. Kat is proud to train with the many talented individuals at Soul Aerial and Performing Arts Center.
