Ashanti began delving into the world of dance in 2008 and fell in love with the art of movement. Belly dance, hoop, ballet, and modern, she took them all and loved the challenge! She began pole dancing in 2009 after meeting Nikki at a belly dance performance. She was immediately intrigued by the idea of pole and thought it would be a fun class to try. Nikki welcomed her with open arms, and it was love at first spin.

Ashanti eventually began performing burlesque and incorporating pole into her performances. Her favorite aspect of pole is how it provides her a chance to be graceful, sexy, and strong while learning beautiful flow and amazing tricks. Wanting to share movement with others, she is also now a certified personal trainer.
