Benefits of Aerial Dance

As any other kind of creative involvement which includes physical exercise, Aerial Dance offers gradual muscular strengthening and well-being and enhances flexibility and posture. It also helps concentration and body-spirit coordination and triggers feelings of confidence, joy and satisfaction in everyone.

Contemporary Pole Dance

The nature of Pole Dance has changed significantly within the years. Not so long ago people associated it exclusively with sensual movement and striptease aesthetics. This has now changed. Pole Dance is a way to express oneself. The possibilities of this aerial dance style are endless in the aesthetic-artistic part, as new creative approaches emerge continuously.

Anastasia

Born in Athens in '93, at the age of four, Anastasia Delta starts gymnastics and ballet. She immediately stands out due to the elasticity of her body, which gives her the name "the rubber girl"! After eight years of full engagement with gymnastics in championship levels -with participations in competitions and various athletic events- a serious injury becomes the cause of her stopping the participation in championships -and later, any form of exercise- for several years. After searching and experimenting with various forms of exercise, in 2014, she discovers pole dancing, which appeals to her from the first moment. At the same time, she attends seminar courses of modern jazz and musical, with Vasia Vougioukli. A year later, acrobatics enter her life as well. She participates in many seminars of this kind, with Anna Omiridi, and practises intensively in acrobatic couples. Currently, she is also a student of the Higher School of Drama "Mary Vogiatzi Traga", she attends ballet classes, contemporary dance and physical theater, incorporating acrobatic combinations in dance-theater improvisations.
