She is certified many times over (ACE, AFAA, AAAI, NSCA, KANE) and has extensive knowledge of alignment, anatomy, strength and flexibility training.

Marlo started pole dancing about five years ago out of curiosity, and developed a style that draws from contemporary dance, yoga, hip-hop, dancehall, and acrobatics. Her pole skills have taken her around the world, and landed her a full page spread in The New York Times, appearances on America's Got Talent, Law&Order, 30 Rock, and and role in the feature film "Rock of Ages" starring Tom Cruise, choreographed by Mia Michaels.

When she is not performing or teaching internationally, Marlo trains and lives in New York City. She teaches at Body&Pole, contributes to Self, Vertical, and Fitness magazines and is a Master Trainer for the X-pole X-pert certification program
