Angela started poling in 2012 in one of Katie's classes at another studio. She was instantly hooked beyond repair! However, with two small children and a career as a pharmaceutical chemist, there just wasn't time to drive an hour each way to the nearest pole studio. So she and her husband created Aerial Arts Fitness to bring pole fitness to this part of the state and provide a safe and fun atmosphere to continue training. Angela's dance training started in 2009 when she began belly dancing as a creative outlet and a way to increase coordination. She danced and performed with Studio Desmeen until the close of the that studio in 2015. Angela is an Xpert and ElevatED certified instructor.
