~SW Pole Dancing
Aubrey Jackson, Sociology Professor at UNM and SWPD Student (1/2015)
Upon recently moving to Albuquerque, I was in desperate need of a new pole studio. I found SW Pole Dancing. My first class left my mind and spirit energized, and my body thoroughly worked and spotted with new pole kisses (i.e., what pole dancers affectionately and proudly call their hard-earned bruises). I had found my new pole home! I especially appreciate Brynlyn's technical expertise, enthusiasm, and creativity. She helps fine-tune old moves, tackle new moves, develop choreography, and build strength and endurance in an atmosphere that is supportive and fun.Type your paragraph here.

"Since starting classes at SW Pole, I have noticed an increase in strength and flexibility and a decrease in sprains, strains and flare ups of old pole injuries. One of my favorite classes is the new Spins class on Fridays from 4:00-5:00pm, taught by Brynlyn Loomis. After warming up, the class begins with a review of one spin or transition as a building block. As it progresses, you build upon each skill until you've put together a series of unique and inventive combinations. The repetition helps build both muscle memory as well as the strength to perform each spin and transition with the proper technique. The last five minutes of class are dedicated to "freestyle," challenging you to flex your creative muscles by combining the skills learned in your own way. The instructor Brynlyn provides structure and guidance while encouraging you to add artistry and make it your own. She is perceptive to each student's needs and will work with you accordingly. She helps to correct areas of weakness while highlighting your strengths, making each class rewarding and well-rounded.After attending several weeks of Spins class, I have noticed an increased proficiency in my ability to pick up tricks and put together combinations taught in other SW Pole classes. It has improved my confidence as both a performer and an athlete. I recommend this class to anyone who wants to improve upon their spins as well as their Climb & Spin technique."

My name is Erin Baldwin and I started taking pole dancing classes at SW Pole Dancing about 2 months ago. When I first started, I loved the experience and enjoyed the classes but I would leave slightly frustrated because I was horrible at spinning! I would come and ask "Can we just climb and not spin?" but as we all know, spinning is a huge part of pole dancing. After a couple weeks of taking classes I decided to go to the Pole Spins class. During this class the spin drills got drilled into my head and I began to understand proper form and got better in the first class! Every time I have gone, Brynlyn (the instructor) has taken the time to actually teach me, pay attention to my needs, show proper technique, and made it fun while learning. Since I've been going to the classes I now enjoy spinning as much as climbing! I attend regular classes and enjoy myself the entire time. I recommend attending this class whether you like, love, or hate spins. It will benefit you and only make you a stronger dancer!

"SW Pole Dancing is AMAZING! Brynlyn is an amazing technical dancer that treats each student with respect and she oozes an undeniable enthusiasm for teaching. She is articulate, detailed and able to identify and make corrects with kindness and gentle encouragement. She is a true gem in the SouthWest!"

''I started classes at SW Pole Dancing after 7 months of healing from abdominal surgery----in only three months of pole dancing, I lost ALL my baby weight and now weigh less than I did before I was pregnant and am more fit than I have ever been. Classes are small, personal, friendly and respectful. Working out is sooo fun!!!----time flies and it doesn't even feel like exercise! Brynlyn (the instructor) is talented, understanding, encouraging and a great trainer and teacher. She works with her students where they are at, mindful of injuries, surgeries and weaknesses. She builds them up both physically and emotionally. It'a not all about being "sexy" (though it's a nice perk). Being sexy and sensual is not the main focus, but being well roundly fit. Learning to be sexy and natural in one's own body is a gift special and unique to the art of pole dancing. Pricing is extremely reasonable especially considering how small the classes are and the personal training you get from Brynlyn. My husband loves it!!! (for obvious reasons) and I am strong enough to take care of my baby girl! I honestly would be a wreck if SW Pole Dancing wasn't there for me. All women should come no matter what walk of life you are in!!! Especially woman wanting to regain there strength and flexibility from injury or pregnancy."

"Brynlyn is a highly qualified Pole dance instructor with over 7 years pole instructor experience. Double Time Dance Studio is nice and in a great location. Pole Dancing is a the best resistance training for women, plus it is all kinds of fun. I recommend SW Pole Dancing for your pole fitness needs."
