Buuweezy started pole in 2014 but quickly fell in love with lyra after her first class in 2018. Now her favourite thing to do is to create graceful flows and explore all the possibilities with lyra - ranging from dynamic transitions to backbending tricks. As an instructor, her goal is to help everyone fall in love with lyra, just like she did, and achieve their aerial goals. Hanh is thrilled to share her knowledge and empower her students to develop their own strength, flexibility and style!

Hayley has been training as an aerialist in circus for over 10 years, specialising in Lyra and Static trapeze. She has trained at two of Sydney's leading circus schools with coaching from the likes of industry professionals, Cirque Du Soleil artists and international mentors. Hayley has experienced a range of mentors and instructors over the years to build her wealth of knowledge in her expertise and continues to do so. Hayley believes in leaning into discomfort to discover what we are capable of both physically and mentally and encourages her students to explore this area to develop their confidence and skills both on and off the lyra, all whilst having fun and laughing along the way.
Josh started dancing at the age of 6 as a way to get out of playing soccer, doing styles such as ballet, contemporary, lyrical and jazz. His passion for teaching began at the end of high school when the studio he trained at offered him an opportunity to teach jazz to the under 10 year olds, and hasn't looked back since. This experience inspired Josh to pusue teaching at a higher level, finishing his degree in Educations (specialising in dance and physical education) in 2016. It was that very same year that Josh went with his mum to his first ever pole class at Love Pole. He continued his training on and off until 2019 deciding this was something he wanted to pursue further, mixing his prior dance background and his new found love of pole. Going into 2021 Josh's new goals are to improve as much as he can and also help others discover their love of pole and be amazed at what they can achieve.

Lara began pole dancing with her best friend back 2014, and enjoyed it so much she decided to become a teacher only a few years later in 2017.
With her best friend by her side, she’s competed in several doubles competitions including the NSW Pole Championships.
Lara’s preferred dance style is fast, fun and flippy! Her love for dance has also made its way off the pole as she favours training in anything contortion and hand balancing.
Lara loves seeing how much pole dancing builds on the confidence and strength of all her students both inside and outside of the studio!
If she’s not training she’ll be spending time with her beautiful (but needy) dogs Bailey and Meeko.

She like the idea of teaching ever since she studied primary & childcare education and thought to apply the training in being a pole instructor. Aurelia has performed in cultural dances within her high school years; and now she has developed love for creating choreography that is sensual with elements of frame up dance. Recently she began competing and loves to make routine that are flexy and challenging. Not only does she love poling but she loves to fly on Lyra, go snowboarding, travelling, create paintings or solve escape rooms in her spare time.
