Meghann has been dancing since she was nine years old. Finding a love and an outlet in this art form she pursued dance as a career after attending Oklahoma City University and graduating in 2006 with a BFA in Dance Performance. After college, Meghann lived in L.A. for a few years taking class, auditioning and learning all she could about her craft. While in L.A. she was able to perform for the House of Dolls fashion show choreographed by Michael Bailey (2006) and was also featured in a VH1 spot with Perez Hilton(2007). 

After auditioning for Celebrity Cruise Lines in 2008 she joined the company and spent the next seven years (2008-2015) performing and traveling the world. This is where Meghann was approached to train in the aerial arts and her flying career began. After attending and successfully completing a strenuous boot camp she was privileged to perform her first static trapeze act with three other amazing aerial boot camp survivors. This started a five year aerial career where Meghann was able to learn and perform shows that highlighted a variety of dance and aerial styles including: duo and quad static trapeze, spanish web, bungee, dance trapeze, adage/statue, and of course, lyra. Since retiring from ‘ship life’ in 2015 Meghann has had the opportunity to perform in Pennsylvania with a focus on the lyra routines. 

Meghann likes to motivate her students with encouragement and personal energy. By ‘personal energy’ she mean that she tries to feel out a student’s personality and learning style, then dissect what might work for them. She is also highly motivated by the energy of the students and the class.

Meghann is ecstatic to get back in the air and bring her knowledge to Studio Spin. See you soon!

Vee

Instructor

Vee, Studio Spin

Vee was first introduced to the exhilaration of pole in the summer of 2013. With no prior gymnastics or dance training, each class and workshop became a personal journey of movement and discovery. She has been teaching at Studio Spin since autumn of 2016 and holds certifications in Pole Level One and Flexibility from ElevatED. Embracing each moment and experience as a lesson, she is grateful to have the previous opportunities to learn from artists such as Heidi Coker, Phoenix Kazree, Marlo Fisken, Jordan Kensley, and many others.

In the winter of 2017, she began to dabble in aerials, falling in love with aerial straps. With Kayla Harding of Riot Circus arts as her mentor, she placed first at Titans of Pole 2018 in the Senior Lyra Bronze division.

When not at the studio, she spends her time traveling around the states taking workshops and performing at private events. As an instructor, she encourages her students to explore the playground of the studio, expand their minds, engage their muscles and allow the outside world to fall away.

Guilty pleasure
I love unwinding from the day with food/snacks (probably chocolate) and catching up on my tv shows.

Hannah began dancing at a young age. She pursued a B.S. in Dance at the University of Oregon and in her senior year, she was invited to join the U of O Repertory Dance Company, where they toured around to high schools performing and educating young students about college and different path ways to get an education. In 2015 she signed up for her first pole class and was instantly hooked. Hannah loved finding a fun activity that combines two passionate activities, dance and fitness. Not only can it be a great workout but it has helped Hannah build her confidence through exploring movement and expression. Shortly after, Hannah began teaching pole in 2016. She is thrilled to be joining Studio Spin’s team of instructors and cannot wait to gain new experiences with everyone in the pole community.

Hannah has worked to earn several certifications. Some of which include ElevatED 1 Pole Dance, Flexibility teaching, AFAA Group Trainer and NASM Personal Trainer certifications.
