Hostess

PETRA LARSSON

Sweden

Since 2000, when Petra introduced the Nordics to ‘exotic’ training such as strip aerobics and pole dance she has been passionate about teaching others this great form of training. Being an aerobics instructor since age 16 and a past pro-basketball player (including the Swedish National Team and the USA) fitness and health has always been a big part of her life. She is at the moment running the largest studio in the Nordics and is the founder of the annual Battle of the Pole, pole dance competition as well as the founder for the Swedish Pole Federation.

She is a well renowned judge around the world with 37 international competitions under her belt which includes 6 world championships and 2 European championships.

Petra was the first to conduct instructor trainings in chair and pole in the Nordics, and her winning style of combining fun but tough classes with inspirational choreography makes her a unique teacher. With over 6000 classes, 20 teacher trainings and more than 700 bachelorette classes the least you can say is that she has experience!
