We’re always growing our Sky Sirens family, and we love to welcome fresh faces into the fold. This term, we were so excited to have the gorgeous Luci join our Pole Dance team! After moving to Australia from England at age nineteen, Luci discovered Pole Dance and the rest is history. Luci thrives on watching her students realise how damn incredible they are, and just flourishing in class as they grow in strength and confidence. Getting to be a part of someone’s journey to self-love, and helping them find new confidence is so special, and she's so happy to have found this role in life. Luci's classes are filled with lots of energy, tough love and encouragement! Check out our interview with Luci below to get up close and personal with this slinky Siren.

How long have you been dancing and how did you start in pole?

I have been Pole Dancing for 8.5 years (with holidays and breaks in between). I started because I had moved here from Australia and didn't know anybody, so I needed to find my tribe!

How long have you been teaching at Sky Sirens and which styles do you teach?

I've been teaching at Sirens for two weeks! Woo! I teach Pole and Floor work. Currently I am teaching Emeralds Intermediate 2 Pole, as well as a Perfect Positions open-level class. There’s also Velvet Vixenettes, a sexy floor work and flow Pole class, and Down n’ Dirty, which is just a whole lot of floor work!

What advice to you like to give to your students?

Ooooh advice! This stuff [Pole Dance] is hard, you'll be challenged mentally and physically, but it's so worth it! The high from a week eight performance where you dance your heart out and show off all your hard work is like nothing else.

“Run your own race, don't waste time comparing yourself to others, you're YOU, own it!”

What do you do when you’re not being a Siren?

When I'm not being a Siren I'm usually crafting! I love painting old furniture, making costumes and an abundance of cushions, gardening and whatever else takes my fancy that week.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Anywhere in the world hey?! I've been to quite a lot of my favourite places already but next on my list is New Zealand. My favourite places that I have visited so far have been Ireland and Japan!

What does this term hold for you?

This term holds a big challenge for me - dancing on wooden floors! I feel like it's opened up a whole new creative world of dance for me. Plus, sliding around on knee pads makes me feel like a kid again, it’s so much fun!

You can catch Luci teaching Pole and Down n’ Dirty on Thursdays this term. Stay tuned to see what classes Luci will be teaching in Term Three!
