Meet The Team
Brenda has been teaching Pole Fitness in Denver for a number of years. The Pole Vault is her second studio and sports some of the tallest poles in Denver. Her dance expertise allows for an all around experience. She believes in strength from the inside out and therefore incorporates that strength building and muscle toning into all her classes. From her fun cardio classes to her boot camps to her pole fitness and dance, she believes that ‘Fitness begins on the inside and shows on the outside.’ ‘Building the core of your body will carry you into old age with grace and fluidity of movement.’
Brenda carries a Masters Degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine and believes in ‘whole body’ health. Her education in Nutrition and Chinese Medicine has led her into the world of physical fitness. Her personal training skills matched with her medical background give her an edge on developing every body that enters her studio. Its not just a ‘Pole Experience’ but rather a ‘Whole Body Experience’.
Brenda is a competitive body building champion and has placed 1st in her weight class numerous times throughout her career. She won the Overall Women’s Body Building title at the 2008 Rocky Mountain Body Building Championships.

Greetings. I have been dancing since the age of four. I started with tap, ballet, and jazz. In my 30’s I began to seriously study partner dancing. My passion is ballroom dancing, specifically Latin dancing. I have competed in all 9 styles of Latin dance. From the first time I went to a Zumba class, I realized that this was the real party! No make-up and no partner required. Come join me as I travel on the road to achieving my fitness goals. Perhaps I can inspire you too! Take a class with me and allow me to share the love I have for dance and Latin music with you.
I come from a family where my mom is the angel of the family and my dad is the anchor. I have been an early child education teacher for many years in the United States and out of the country (Venezuela). I am currently in my fourth year as a teacher in the Denver Public School system. I have always had a dream of owning and operating my own early child education center and this past year I was able to open my own day care here at Denver. I love to work with little ones and dance every minute that I can. These 2 things bring me joy in life.
I have had the opportunity to participate in belly dance classes for 2 years as well as Flamenco classes in Venezuela. Also Bailoterapia which involves a different kind of latin music. I have always had a passion for dance and I feel that it is an expression of who I am deep within; and by expression I mean that when I dance I feel a great joy and passion as I move my body and soul to the rhythm of the music.
I would love to invite you to feel that passion when you listening to the music and start feeling how your hips and body move to the amazing rhythm that involves the belly dance.
Monika has been teaching introductory pole since 2013 and has been attending class for the past five years. She passes her passion on to everyone in her classes. Her dedication and discipline is infectious as is her laughter and joy.
