I'm Tata (she/her/hers), the Fly Club Studio Manager. I'm a gal with too many hobbies to count, but my favorite ones are dance, painting, and photography! I have some pole and lyra dance experience as well and spent some time being a baby burlesque dancer :) I'm currently getting my MSW at UIC and hope to be a child therapist one day! Within that realm, I also do trauma informed yoga basics and love somatic experience exercises. oh, I'm an abortion doula too! Can't wait to meet you!
With just a little over a year of pole dance under his belt, Johnny has trained in both aerial silks and gymnastics earlier in life. Like many others who take on pole, he finds traditional exercise to be unfulfilling and prefers a more artistic outlet. Pole has provided him that and more with his wonderful Fly Club family. Join his classes for a healthy mix of fun and exercise!
