Instructors & their workshops
Olga is very young, but also very experienced in pole dance. When she stunned the pole world as a 12 years old little girl with her videos, shows and then
also with her win in Russia's biggest TV talent show, nobody knew what would come after. Then she started to win competitions for adults...
She visited Mystique Pole Dance in Zurich just before her 14th birthday. We didn't know how she will be before, but she got us all already then.
When she teaches pole, she's more mature than most much older pole dancers. Her knowledge is very wide, so when there is something, she doesn't know yet
she has no problem to understand, reproduce and even develop the new thing. Seeing her like this already back then, we knew that we got to know the first
real pole genius which appeared in this new discipline.
She's now 16, and we need to clear some prejudices that may slip through your head subconsciously when you hear her age and the age when she started
(she started at the age of 8). Don't think about a poor kid, who was drilled against her will. Besides doing all these incredible things at the pole,
she's a normal teenager. She's a fun person to be with and how playful she is, you also can see, when you check out her later performances. She
uses her language pole dance to tell her stories and express her emotions. The other prejudice that could come up: can a teenager teach? Yes she can!
We were speechless how structured she was already teaching two years ago. Not only how she explains. She can also cope with mixed-level classes and
doesn't lose any students.

Dimitry Politov is one of a kind. It seems that he always finds a way to do something else than the others. And like this he is very influential
to the pole world. I remember his first videos going viral. Execution was not yet that proper yet, but what he did was playful and totally different.
And instead of making this a one-time story, he developed his pole skills. So he brought skills from break dance and parkour to pole dance and now
it's something new. Meanwhile he won a lot of competitions and taught many workshops worldwide. Besides his solo acts, he was also very prolific
and successful together with the great Pink Puma, another influential and valued pole dancer.
When he started to show all this crazy pole work, the next question was: how does he teach? Even though he never taught workshops at Mystique Pole
Dance in Switzerland, he got us convinced very early. I remember hosting US instructors coming back from Pole Art Italy in 2015. It seems that
all these great instructors joined the workshops after the competition as participants. Even though there were workshops by many big names of pole dance,
the whole talk was about Dimitry's workshops: interesting, inspiring and a lot of fun. We are looking forward to his workshops.

but shows how Dance would be if Dimitry could define the rules ...

Sasja Fierce Lee
Sasja Lee calls herself Sasja Fierce on some occasions. So she is Sasja «Fierce» Lee. She's the first instructor from the US teaching
in one of our Thailand Pole Camps. She lives and teaches in Los Angeles. As she's not travelling that much, she's not easy to catch as an instructor.
But it may have been fate that her first journey to Europe ever, brought her to Mystique Pole Dance in Switzerland in the year 2015. Now we
bring her also the first time to Asia and we do this, as we know that she's worth it.
Sasja won championships in the US some time back. The reason that we got interested though, was her way of doing pole dance. She can do crazy things
and she can dance. All this makes her a multi-faceted pole dancer that can widen your horizon. Even though the other 3 instructors are the best of
their kind, the picture is not complete without a hidden gem like Sasja. She teaches fun workshops and will leave you with a smile. Besides being a
good teacher, she's also very nice person. You certainly won't be disappointed.

Daria Che or with her full name Daria Chebotova is called sometimes the queen of Exotic Pole. Exotic Pole was present in Russia before the term was used in
other countries. As there were similar styles in the US and Australia, now the term "Russian Exotic" is sometimes used, to make a difference.
Russian Exotic has style, a great flow and is not cheap at all, whereas the styles coming originally from the US and Australia set the term "sexy"
to the focus. We prefer Russian Exotic and really like it, so we give it a space in our third run of the Mystique Pole Camp Thailand.
For this, who is better suited than Daria Che? She is based in St. Petersburg. There she studied Rhythmic Gymnastics but had to stop due to an injury.
When Exotic Pole started to get known in Western Europe, there were names like Eva Bembo or Olga Koda. Soon after, it was Daria Che, and she was there
to stay. Her style is still fresh and even with there being many good Exotic pole dancers around, she is still the first dancer coming to mind when
talking about Exotic Pole.
Daria Che taught workshops at Mystique Pole Dance in Switzerland in 2016. Besides her teaching very nice workshops, we also found her a very sympathetic
person. This is the perfect mix for a pole camp.
