Body Electric Pole Dance Studio- Meet your teachers
Maree and Giada founded Body Electric Pole Dance Studio, Wellington, New Zealand in 2014. They are both experienced pole dance teachers who have a wealth of experience guiding all levels of students, from introductory pole classes through to elite level pole. Opening a pole school to share their passion for pole has been a long time dream for both of them, and establishing Body Electric Pole Dance Studio was an exciting and fulfilling next-step in their pole careers. Both Maree and Giada are well-known pole dance performers in the Wellington scene, as well as around New Zealand. Body Electric is proud to have a team of experienced, dedicated teachers covering all aspects of pole styles. Our teachers come from varied backgrounds, and have a profusion of body movement, fitness and dance knowledge.

Experienced, passionate and creative, flexy pole instructor, Bec, is
determined to build students' confidence. Passionate about helping women
to love themselves for who they are and all of which they are capable,
Bec herself fell in love with pole in Sydney, Australia, where she had
moved from her birthplace in NZ.
Bec developed a liking for the sexy side of pole, and soon established herself as an instructor at
Pole Dance Academy in Sydney. Now back living in New Zealand, and working also as an early childhood educator while she teaches at Body Electric, pole dance still represents for Bec "the perfect balance of art, fitness, flexibility and music."
THE POLE ROOM NZ is for the love of Pole Dance!
