Ilka Bardóczy

Hungary

Ilka won the the World Pole Sport & Fitness Championship in doubles category with Barbara in 2011 and 2012. They also won the European Pole sport Championship in Rome, 2012 September. She started pole acrobatics in 2010, at Dollhouse Budapest, without any dance, gymnastics or performing arts background. She used to work as a landscape architect and made plans for towns, parks and gardens, but since the summer of 2011 she is a full-time pole dance and aerial silk trainer.

While turning from a complete outsider into a world champion, her attitude remained the same: "It's about fun, the joy of movement: motion and emotion."
