Collette has one of the keenest eyes in pole dance and a great ability to explain things. She keeps it MOVING. You won't believe how much you get done! - Jenyne

I have known Collette over 10 years. My best example of her knowledge is every time we would tape video and she would call me down because it wasn't perfect, I would review the film and see she was RIGHT lol. She is kind and fun-loving ... even though she will tire you out!  - Felix

I wanted to work with Collette because of her positive and inspiring spirit. She also has an amazing eye for detail. We learned pole dance half a world apart, but speak the same language. You will learn so much!  - Anastasia

More Testimonials:

Collette so knows her stuff! I love that her teaching and this program aren't just focused on you learning pole moves - but rather a system that actually teaches you HOW to teach. 

This program is amazing! Collette structures it all in a way that makes perfect sense. I didn't have a lot of confidence in myself and she just made me feel like I could conquer the world.

This certification program trained my mind to be able to construct and deconstruct nearly every move ... even new moves ... in a way that they are safe and technically correct and beautiful. Brilliant program!

I trained with Collette while she was PREGNANT ... and it was amazing what she conveyed and the understanding she gave me sheerly from video review, manual review and me understanding my own body in relation to the pole. She made me feel SO CONFIDENT that I don't have to physically be able to do the most advanced tricks in order to know my stuff and be able to teach them.  I'm an older student and want my younger ones to pass me ... and this was so eye-opening. Her teaching system and knowledge are AMAZING!

Hostess with the mostest. Collette has been iconic in this industry for so many years as a role model of positivity. You are going to feel so warm and welcomed - and man is she knowledgeable.  I booked an extra Business Builder session with her after I got home over the phone and that was immensely helpful to my studio. Money well spent.
