About Lana

Hey, it’s me, Lana!

Dancing is incredibly close to my heart. My curiosity for this art is limitless. Again and again I am amazed by how many facets of dancing can be discovered and how much the practice can contribute to the personal development of an individual.

Everyone who knows me knows that I am a person with many interests. I studied physics and mathematics, have been to many sports clubs and I enjoy deep discussions about an infinite amount of different subjects – but I find nothing as enriching as teaching dance (with or without a pole). It has become my life’s task to continuously pass on my knowledge, to prepare technical dance skills safely and sustainably, to both challenge and motivate my students, to offer a place of free of judgment, and to enable connections and create a sense of community – that’s what I have been offering successfully for many years.

What is extremely important to me as a teacher is to keep training myself, to keep educating myself and to always be ready to consider new perspectives. My personal experiences as well as observations of other people have led me to the conclusion that as an expert, this is an absolute necessity – in any field – in order to be able to teach knowledge and skills professionally.

I am grateful to every person who has ever booked a course with me. I thank them for putting their trust in me. It is an absolute honor to watch my students grow. It never ceases to amaze me how much they change while also finding their own voices as they become unique (pole) dance artists.

If you want to learn from me too: I’m looking forward to getting to know you 🙂

Dancy greetings,
