OWNER & HEAD INSTRUCTOR
Hi, I'm SJ and I'm the owner and Head Instructor here at PPD STUDIOS.
I first fell in love with Pole in my early 20's, when I was looking for a fun way to keep fit and lose weight. I bought a home pole and began teaching myself and as they say, the rest is history!
I have been teaching for over 15 years now, I started out hiring pub, club and gym venues around West Yorkshire. In 2012 I made the decision to open the first dedicated Pole Dancing and Aerial Arts Studio in Huddersfield. Since then I have worked hard to expand my qualifications and evolve the Studio, creating a safe space for everyone to enjoy fun and alternative ways to keep fit.
I have built a team of creative, talented Instructors who I am fortunate to have work with me to deliver a range of classes at the Studio.
What started out as Princess Pole Dancing grew into what we have now as PPD STUDIOS. We are also home to the Huddersfield University Pole Fitness Club, who have been training with us for 8 years now.
I'm qualified in Pole Fitness, Aerial Hoop, Aerial Silks, Children's Pole & Aerial, Stretching & Flexibility, Yoga, Zumba and Zumba Kids.
I am fully Insured, First Aid Trained, DBS Checked and have completed Safeguarding and Mental Health First Aid courses.
I am a PDC Approved Instructor and we are a PPD Approved Studio.
I look forward to welcoming you to the PPD family and sharing my enthusiasm for Pole. Aerial, Fitness and Wellbeing.
