About me


It thought it was easy, but it’s not. That’s why I can’t simply translate what I wrote about me on my official Italian page. What I’ll do is just writing it again. This time in English.

My name is Aryanna and I’m 30 years old.

I’m a pole dancer since August 2010; I’m a happy self-taught one, beacause in my place there was no pole dancing course to attend.
My pole dance course in September 2011 was the very first.

When people ask me how did you start pole dancing? I can’t really find an answer. I guess I was searching for some dance videos and I literary bumped into the pole dance experience.
I saw extremely fit and beautiful women floating in the air, moving elegantly some in their heels some with bare foot and I thought: that is what I will become. I’ve been dancing ballet and modern jazz for 13 years. I went through latin dances and hip hop too.

But this, this is the most complete form of female body work out I have ever tried.
It’s a challenge with your limits, your fears and your constant thought are you crazy? I’ll never manage to do it! but then you will.
With time and practice.

Pole dance is fun and help you building your self-confidence. And most of all it’s sexy. Oh shit! Yes it is.

Pole dancing is fitness.
Pole dancing is movement.
Pole dancing is grace.
Pole dancing is female.
Pole dancing is me.

I regularly teach 5 evenings  a week in my Studio where I have started my own signature pole dance courses, trying to dance and teach in my own personal style.

I am proud to be the first Italian pole dancer and teacher ever to bring, to teach, to dance and to promote in Italy Stripper Style pole dance, also known as Exotic pole dance.

I am proud to be considered as an example by many of my colleagues who regulary invite me to teach workshops in their studios and take inspiration from my original and sensual style.
