Our instructors

The Pole Loft is a small business established in January 2018 and we have grown ever since. From a handful of classes per week and a one woman show to a full timetable filled with various classes and disciplines and an incredible hilarious and skilled team!

When Alena set up The Pole Loft her aim was to share her passion for and love of pole. Her world has changed when she started pole 10 years ago and that included all the physical benefits of pole but mainly the benefits she felt on her mental health, confidence, self-esteem and self awareness. Alena was quickly hooked and her dream was to be able to share all of this with as many people as possible and that's when our studio was born!


Alena is the owner of and head instructor at The Pole Loft. Alena has been pole dancing for 10 years, she adores pole for everything it brings - you will hear her say that pole is not just the exercise, it's so much more, and once you start you will know exaclty what she means. Alena is Xpert and Spin City qualified instructor, she is also a qualified yoga teacher, her goal is to continue creating a welcoming and supportive community, her main aim is for her students to have fun in classes whilst becoming strong and badass polers.

Watch Alena's intro video here where she shares why she started The Pole Loft and what it means o her.


I started pole dancing in July 2021 to gain strength and quickly fell in love. In May 2022 I qualified as an XPERT Pole Fitness Level 1 & 2 instructor so I could help others start their pole dance journeys.

I'm a fan of building strength to help you tackle those tricky tricks!

Raven (she/they) hails from Belfast NI and resides in Manchester, coming to The Pole Loft every Tuesday for her patented pole and stretch themed chaos! She has been teaching since December 2019 with a little (large) nudge from her pole teacher progressed not only her own practice but her students’. Her unwavering belief that anything is possible means that she’ll not let you say you can’t, you just can’t…yet. She has learnt from world class instructors from all over the world, and her mission is to make everyone believe that they can achieve anything, no matter what the obstacle!
