FABPOLE & LEESI
FabPole™ is the beautiful combination of Aerial Fabric & Pole Dancing created by L’Ru Studios’ owner, circus artist and pro pole dancer, Leesi Ruskaup.
In April of 2011 Leesi was asked by Elena Mikhaylova, the founder of Pole Dance Universe and former aerial and pole student of Leesi’s, to create something with aerial fabric and pole. After some thought and experimentation, she combined fabric and spin pole (video above) and created FabPole for a showcase performance at Pole Dancing Universe 2011. Leesi has been teaching FabPole™ workshops and teacher training certification to pole and aerial fabric/silks lovers around the world.
With her creative choreography, passionate performances, and warm, individualized teaching style, we are thrilled to give you the chance to learn FabPole from the creator! Find out for yourself why instructors as well as students of every skill level keep coming back to Leesi for training in this exciting dance form.
If you’ve ever seen or played with this wonderful combination of two beautiful aerial apparatuses, you know how much fun it is! Not only can you learn how to master this art you can learn to teach it as well. Who better to learn from than the creator herself?
