More about me

Edyta Ćwik – Owner and Trainer

I am originally from Poland. I moved to Galway in 2017. I discovered my undying passion for pole dancing during college years. After moving to Ireland I trained with the best instructors of the Irish Pole Dance Academy in Dublin. My biggest dream was to create my own studio where I could teach and share my love to pole dancing with others. I never imagined though that it’s going to grow into truly amazing place where magic happens!

As a spotlight addict I love to perform! You can see me on stage on  numerous of occasions such as UPA’s Bringing Sexy Back week celebration parties, poleshows, showcases and sometimes competitions.

Who is helping me:

Taryn Schuller – Trainer

The most compassionate and friendly person I’ve ever met! Taryn is a qualified yoga and pole dance instructor hailing from South Africa and now based in Galway.  Having dabbled in pole dancing for the past few years, she was lucky to train in several pole studios in a few different countries around the world before she settled in Ireland.  Taryn found another sporting passion in yoga too and has been teaching Hatha classes in Galway for the last year. Taryn is excited to join our team to use her experience in pole dancing and yoga to teach a combination of techniques which will help us improve our body strength, flexibility and awareness.
