Shantelle is trained in jazz, tap & classical. She started her professional dancing career in her father’s magic spectacular at the young age of 15. From there she has had a 20 year career as a commercial dancer, performing in musicals, film clips, the corporate entertainment scene and touring with Walt Disney.
Shantelle took up pole dancing in 2003 looking for a dance based form of exercise and fell in love with it straight away. She quickly became an advanced pole artist and competitor, performing regularly at Slide nightclub, in the corporate scene and winning Miss Pole Princess in 2006 as well as Pole Theatre Drama in 2017. Shantelle also has a long history in teaching all forms of dance, and added pole to this list in 2006.
When not at the studio Shantelle can be found teaching young children and children with special needs dance, hanging out with her 3 children or walking the family dog. Her favourite thing to do is escape the stresses of life through dance.
Her secret pleasure is pink musk sticks and moscato wine and she likes to binge watch Suits.
