MEET THE INSTRUCTORS

PATTY YACONIS

LEAD INSTRUCTOR / OWNER

Patty_1-min

Patty has been enjoying the challenge and art of pole dancing for over ten years. Once experiencing the thrill and challenge it provided, she quickly decided to become a certified instructor and now has fulfilled the dream of opening her own studio.

ALEXIS GONZALEZ

INSTRUCTOR

Lexi started her career in the great basin of pole dancing….Las Vegas! She has experience teaching different styles of pole dance and pole fitness in three different countries. She is a certified (PoleMoves) instructor and currently actively dancing in the nightclub industry. She has choreographed pole routines for dancers of different levels for both pole competitions and national presentations. Meet her at Pole Ascending Flow, Polesque, or Splitsville!

ALEX KUNZELMAN

INSTRUCTOR

Alex began pole dancing in 2014 through a student-led organization at the UofI in Champaign, IL. Shortly thereafter he helped open Defy Gravity, a pole and aerial arts studio, where he developed the higher level courses and conditioning classes. It was in this space that he developed a deep connection with pole and what it can do for the individual as well as the community it nourishes. After moving across the country in 2017, he slowly slipped away from pole 

but it never left his mind. It wasn’t until the spring of 2021 that he would enter the doors of Pole Appeal, jump on a pole again, and rekindle his love and obsession with this insanely hard art form. He is always inspired by the transformations he sees in his students and the community as they progress through the pole world- not just in terms of ability, but more importantly how their lives are changed through vulnerability, expression, self awareness, and support.

ZACHARY NOEL

INSTRUCTOR

Zack has been a dancer for over 15 years. He loves embracing and exploring all different types of dance styles, and pole is one of them. Starting pole about 3 years ago, Zack has gone through many trainings and loves being able to teach fun, challenging, but attainable combos in his pole classes. He loves to celebrate each and every one of his pole and dance students’ victories. If you would like to book a private with Zack, you can work on Pole, Choreography, or overall performance. While a trained dancer, Zack has a lot of experience working with dancers at all levels.

BIRDIE WELCH

INSTRUCTOR

Birdie began pole in 2019, but has been in the fitness field since 2014. She began by teaching Pilates, and went on to earn her Bachelor’s in Kinesiology and Masters in Exercise Science. Having the background of fitness and body anatomy helps Birdie to work students through the many different movements and tricks that accompany pole dancing.

Birdie’s motto in class is that every body is valued, no two bodies move the same, and progress makes progress.

OLIVIA (Liv) NATHAN

INSTRUCTOR

Liv (she/they) has been pole dancing since May 2021 and is eternally grateful to the Pole Appeal community for transforming their life. They have a passion for dance and the dedication that comes along with this practice, which is why they love teaching pole conditioning and yoga! They have been practicing yoga for a decade and teaching yoga since 2017. Their favorite thing about teaching at Pole Appeal (aside from the amazing community of teachers and students) is watching their students exude confidence and empowerment as they build strength and flexibility. Outside of teaching and dancing, Liv is a professional actor here in Chicago. If they aren’t working on their creative projects, you can probably catch them at home with their cat, Stevie!
