Miss Filly

Hailing from Melbourne, Australia, Miss Filly began her pole dancing career at Pole Divas, one of the longest running pole dancing studios in the city, established in 2004.

From there she became quickly addicted to pole and being on stage as she turned professional as a teacher and state level competitor in 2010 after only a year of pole dance as a student.

The inspiration to try Pole Dancing as a new form of dance fitness and exercise came from her sister who, with an extensive dance background was looking to return to a class environment and learn new skills and build strength. Inspired by the teachers and falling in love with the environment, they both became addicted to the sport taking part in 5 or more classes a week and participating in shows and student competitions.

After winning the Advanced student category of ‘Unleashed’, Pole Divas’ in house student competition a young and ambitious Filly was asked to teach for Pole Divas in 2010. Loving where this new found passion had taken her physically and mentally, she quit her job as a Database Implementation consultant to make Pole Dance a full time occupation. It was the best decision she ever made. She saw the impact she could have on the lives of others, building the self esteem and confidence of women and transforming not just their minds but their bodies too. This in itself was addictive and she knew this is where she wanted to build her career.

Jordan Kensley

 

Jordan Kensley is a California-based pole dancer and instructor. She discovered pole dancing from a Youtube video in the summer of 2012 and, with no prior movement experience, decided then and there that she needed to be able to “do that”. After moving to Los Angeles she discovered her first pole dancing home, BeSpun, and was soon in any class she could break into.From that first spark of interest, her passion for pole dancing has grown ever since, fed every time she enters a studio.
Since starting her training, she has become a resident instructor at the world famous studios: Allure, BeSpun, Cleo’s Rock’n’Pole, and The Vertitude. She is a permanent dancer at the infamous Jumbos Clown Room in Hollywood under her pseudonym Roxie Jordan, and has become a powerful presence in the pole world by competing, performing and teaching all over the world.
Jordan strives to embody the athlete, the artist, and the goddess in every dance. Her goal as an instructor is to help her students realize those same qualities in themselves. Pole Dancing has allowed her to appreciate movement, especially in the form of free styling, heel clacks, and has forged her signature sexy dynamic style. She enjoys sharing her enthusiasm with her friends and students. She has met so many inspiring people within this community and is looking forward to meeting many more in the years to come.
