About Me

I am known as Nicole “ThePole” has a media-heavy resume that reads like an A-list celebrity. There are appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Access Hollywood, The Insider, and Ricki Lake. She taught Nick Lachey how to pole dance on VH1, showed the crew from Cosmopolitan magazine my moves, even gave the Grammy-winning gospel group Mary Mary pole dance lessons. I appeared in Diesel’s campaign for i-d Magazine, was the first African American to create a pole dance instructional DVD series, and had one of the biggest studios in Los Angeles.

My alter ego was born in 2007 when I saw women pole dancing at a Los Angeles house party. I immediately bought a pole and taught myself tricks by watching YouTube. At the time, I was a personal trainer and co-owner of a Personal Training gym and quickly began telling clients about my newfound obsession.
A tomboy and athlete in high school, I fell in love with the fitness aspect of pole dance. My new outlet also offered something else… the freedom to be sexy. I learned to step into my femininity, point my toes and be graceful, learn fluidity and musicality, traits I didn’t possess before her pole dance training.
I believe pole dance could be a powerful movement for women and for fitness. In 2008 I opened Allure Dance and Fitness, one of LA’s pioneer pole studios. I excels as an instructor because I connects with my students, break down moves, and most of all – make it FUN! If we keep a positive mindset and “Can Do” attitude anything is possible.

Rihanna made it rain on me in the Pour It Up video. My pole tricks stopped Ne-Yo dead in his tracks in a scene from the music video for She Knows. I performed on stage with Bruno Mars at the 2013 MTV European Music Awards.

Thought Freida Pinto was working that pole in the Bruno Mars Gorilla video? Nope. It was my body double, the aerial phenomenon otherwise known as “Nicole ThePole.”
