Since I first started this blog, I have taken up teaching pole dance, twerk and chair/lap dance through studio teaching, workshops and online and offline private classes. I have also started teaching at university as part of my PhD 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 a pole dance instructor based at Exotica Pole Dance School in Hackney Wick. There, I teach pole tricks for beginners, for intermediate pole dancers and exotic pole.
Veronica, the owner of the school, approached me and trained me to become an instructor. So if you’ve read this blog and have wanted to try pole, or if you’ve ever messaged me asking to learn from me, this is the place!
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
- Exotic pole
- Lap dance
- Helping with showcase / competition routines (either through direct choreographing or for advice)
Email email@example.com for rates and more info.
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.
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!”Maria

Academic / Activist Workshops
Aside from teaching criminology and journalism at a couple of London universities, I’ve got an exciting event coming up in the new year focusing on algorithm bias and Instagram censorship. Below are some examples of my speeches in a more academic setting.
