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.
