Since I first started this blog, I have taken up teaching pole dance, twerk and chair/lap dance through studio teaching, workshops, online and offline private classes and online tutorials. I have also started teaching at university and led a variety of workshops on Internet criminology stuff. This page will be all about that – so that you can come to my classes, workshops or book me if you want me to teach you something that doesn’t involve using scissors or tying your shoelaces properly, because I still haven’t how to do either.

Pole Dance Teaching

I am an online and offline London-based pole dance instructor. I teach pole tricks for beginner and for intermediate pole dancers as well as pole choreographies, having started my teaching journey at Exotica Pole Dance in 2019.

I’m a Twerk Technician certified instructor, having learnt the origins of twerk and the different styles and techniques from trainers behind the certification created by the World Famous Vertical Joe Fitness in Atlanta.

I’m also available for online and offline private classes and workshops teaching:

  • Pole tricks
  • Pole choreography
  • Twerk
  • Chair dance
  • Floorwork
  • Helping with showcase / competition routines (either through direct choreographing or for advice)

I tend to upload my tutorials and online workshops to my Buy Me A Coffee page here, so if you’d like to purchase them AND support me you know where to go 🙂

Dance Workshops

I’ve taught both lap dance and twerk sold-out workshops. I’ve been very lucky to learn both lap dance and twerk from some of the best instructors out there – people that have worked in clubs or the amazing Chanelle from Twerkology Nation, who spends a lot of time not only teaching twerk, but also educating people about the culture and the origins of this type of dance.

I carry what I’ve been taught with me and I do my best to share that knowledge in a fun, chill environment.

Teaching Testimonials

Some lovely messages and teaching testimonials written by my students and published with their consent.

“Hey Carolina! I took your twerk class today and just wanted to drop you a message because it was absolutely AMAZING. After wanting to try twerk for a while and following you on Insta, because you are a super talented dancer and all around awesome person, I decided to try it out. I was really hesitant but you instantly made me feel super confident and at ease. You are an awesome teacher and such and inspiration. Thank you so much for the class, I am eternally thankful for it. It brought a smile to my face and made my day so so much better. It was a privilege. I don’t usually send these messages but everyone needs kindness in their lives rn!”


Hey Carolina. I just wanted to say thank you for the lessons I’ve had with you.. you’re an amazing teacher! I enjoy every session and always leave feeling great even if I haven’t got the moves that time lol 💗


I absolutely love doing private zoom classes with Carolina. Doing them makes WFH so much better when I have a pole session on my lunch break! I also love learning Carolina’s routines, they are super fun, sassy and are the right level of difficulty or me. I always come away from our classes feeling more confident and sexy!


Academic / Activist Workshops

Aside from teaching criminology and journalism at a couple of London universities, I’ve been giving talks and keynotes and teaching seminars, lectures and webinars on issues such as online abuse, conspiracy theories, algorithm bias, social media censorship and online moderation for universities, brands, charities and other organisations. Some examples below.
