Sasja embarked on her pole journey in December of 2009 as a student and became an instructor after only 4 months.
Having no athletic or dance background, she took to the pole like a fish to water, becoming 2013 California Pole Dance Champion, 2014 National Aerial Pole Art Champion, 2014 Ink-N-Iron Champion and 2017 Pole Theatre Iceland Classique Pro Champion.
This three time consecutive National Pole Champion and now International Pole Champion, has performed at Coachella Music Festival in 2016 with recording artist, Halsey, choreographed a pole dance segment for Christina Applegate on funnyordie.com and appeared on several pole dancing segments for network television including, Telemundo, Lifetime, Justin TV, a Fiat commercial and music video with Fergie.
Sasja has shared her love of pole dance across the nation and abroad, teaching workshops with emphasis on not only technique, but the necessary mental component, as true growth occurs from the inside out.
For someone who once considered shopping her cardio, she now has a deeper appreciation for the connection of body and spirit through the art of dance and fitness. “Every woman should give it a try. Your spirit will thank you for it.”
