Roz the Diva Workshop

Join us for this very special workshop! We are beyond excited to host Roz.

Plus Size Pole Dancing
Pole dancing is really, REALLY hard when you’re in a large body. Period. Far too often, studios are quick to preach the benefits of pole for every body, but very few instructors understand how to coach every body. Let’s fix that. Both students and instructors (of all sizes!) are invited to learn about defining plus size, the importance of instructor diversity, class structure and lots of SPOTTING techniques!

This workshop is lead by Roz The Diva Mays. NASM certified Roz "The Diva" Mays has dedicated many late nights at the gym to becoming a stronger and healthier athlete. Pole dancing is her sport of choice, followed by TRX, strength & conditioning and flexibility. Among her finest contributions to the pole world has been creating Dangerous Curves: A Celebration of Plus Size Pole Dancers. Her talents have lead to a SAG membership for professional stunt work in Law and Order: SVU, The Big C and That’s My Boy. She loves to teach obnoxiously loud classes at Body & Pole and IncrediPOLE, and trains clients at Form Fitness & Complete Body, all in New York City. She’s also the subject of Dangerous Curves, a documentary featured by the New York Times. When she isn’t half naked and sweaty, Diva’s making pancakes with Beyonce.
