About Lisa Hickey

I have been Pole Dancing for fitness and recreation for seven years, and it is my passion, I love it! A good training session or class and I am on a high…. still…. will it ever change?

I started Pole Dancing at the age of 22, to lose my baby weight, I worked full time and this was a fantastic release from being a mum and employee, for me it felt like I was Lisa again and I have never looked back!

Pole Dancing was the first form of dance I had ever done; up to the age of 17 I was trained in martial arts, which I found helped me pick up the technique side of pole dancing.

After my second child I decided to become a qualified instructor and I set up my Pole school, Totally Pole Dancing in 2010.

I am always looking forward for new challenges and to see where pole will take me, I have recently started training in aerial hoop and look to become qualified in the new year.

As one of your Pole Freaks blog writers I want to bring you a range of different topics, to highlight what is going on in the pole world, what is current and discussions you find yourself having at your local pole schools.
