In 2017, Danielle moved from New Brunswick to Ottawa for university. As a means to make new friends and exercise, she started her pole journey at PFA that same year. With no dance, gymnastic or other fitness background, Danielle was nervous to start this new hobby. Fortunately, she quickly learned that pole doesn’t judge where you start from, but rather it guides you to become your better self. Throughout the years, Danielle is grateful to have started pole because she is more confident in her skin, strong, flexible, and has made many new friends!
