A master of character, she suffuses each performance with honesty and depth through her richly detailed choreography. Her breathtaking musicality, spirited movement and crisp, elegant lines sweep the audience along and immerse them in the moment. Sergia brings this personal connection from the performance stage into the classroom, enabling students to find the energy in their own movement. Drawing on her background in salsa, ballet, jazz, contemporary and theater, she provides a firm technical foundation for innovative tricks and transitions, accessible to dancers at all levels. Her New York Theatre credits are far reaching including working with Broadway director Jerry Zaks in City Center Encores! Bye Bye Birdie. She has also appeared in numerous national commercials including spots for Verizon, Cascade, Chrysler and has co-starred in TV shows 3 lbs. and ABC's The Forgotten, as well as acting in re-ocurring roles on CBS's Guiding Light. Recent films include the lead in Tony Tango. Sergia found pole while dancing and acting professionally in New York and Los Angeles for 10 years. The pole became a grounding passion for Sergia and she founded The Vertitude Dance Studio in Los Angeles in 2011. She made an international name for herself with her competition/performance routines, and quickly became one of the most sought after choreographers in the pole world, working with national and international stars to achieve their competition, performance, and pole goals in classes, private lessons, and over Skype. Her dance and performance background gave her the ability to chameleon her way through all styles of pole from pole exotic, to pole sport, to contemporary pole, as well as creating a style her very own. Sergia has a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Drama from Tisch School of the Arts, New York University. She is an Elevated, X-pert, Pilates and Yoga Certified Instructor. Her Brand Sponsors include BadKitty Apparel, Lupit Pole, and Complete Pole Tutorials. Sergia is now in her 6th year of living on the road and teaching all over the globe to connect people to movement and dance. Teaching pole has taken Sergia to over 26 countries over the last 6 years. Private lesson slots with Sergia are available for booking during the retreat dates.

Private lesson slots with Natasha are available for booking during the retreat dates. Instagram: @polecricket Iris Sparrow Iris Sparrow has always been fascinated with movement, but she was one of those awkward, clumsy, tomboy kids who idolized dancers and never, ever thought she could become one. But in 2009, Iris found pole, and her people. She began teaching two years later, and found her passion. When the pole exotic craze arrived, Iris was swept up in the fervor. It became her mission to figure out this floor humping, hair flipping, leg twirling insanity, and learn how to teach it to everyone - not just former rhythmic gymnasts and people with spines made of rubber. Pole exotic is a delightfully sex positive, body positive style with an emphasis on creativity and sass. It makes everyone look like a badass superhuman, but it’s not magic. Iris specializes in pulling apart the mind-bending combinations of pole exotic into tiny, achievable bits that any pole student can rock. Iris is an instructor at The Vertitude in Canoga Park, CA. She is XPERT trained for pole instruction and also coaches students for competition. 818-235-4020 Instagram: @poleinthewinecountryretreat
