USC instructors

Mirja Vliem started poledancing when she was 22 years old and became completely obsessed. To her, this is the perfect full-body workout with a combination of strength and agility. The best way to put aside your thoughts. “The best thing about teaching, is to see how poledancing can boost your confidence. It’s amazing to work with students on achieving their goals and seeing them become just as obsessed with the sport as I am!”.

Dieuwke Vogelaar started pole dancing when she was 22 years old. After her first introduction class, she was sure of it: ‘This is something I wanna be good at!’ In the beginning, Dieuwke struggled with her agility but after four years of training she’s now a pole dancing instructor. Her goal? Creating a kick-ass combination of strength and elegance.

Wear and gear

Wear comfortable clothing in which you can move easily. You will dance barefoot. In order to have enough grip on the pole we advise to wear shorts.
