Wenna started pole dancing in 2006 with only a little prior dance training in jazz and hip hop. Primarily a swimmer, she was looking for a dance style that would allow her to use her upper body strength, which led her to a pole dancing studio in Adelaide. After a year as a student she took up teaching and found a true passion in helping her students to challenge their ideas about what they and their bodies can do.
She also has a love of being back and side stage at competitions and watching performers deliver something they have poured so much energy, heart and time into. So in addition to teaching, she also ran the South Australian heats of Miss Pole Dance Australia.
In over 12 years she has tried many different styles, in studios all over the world. I love the way pole constantly develops and new moves and styles are always being found. Whatever your style is, whatever your strength is – there’s a place in the pole world for you.
