Having claimed the original title of Miss Pole Dance Australia, Jamilla went on to be voted by the global pole community as IPDFA International Instructor of the Year for the last two years running. Renowned for her strength, athleticism and grace as a performer, Jamilla’s understanding and mastery of such crucial elements of pole dancing as safety, body alignment, aerial fitness, and balance set her apart as a leader in her field, making her offerings as an instructor invaluable to dancers the world over.
Since opening her own studio in Sydney, Australia, Jamilla has toured her classes across the USA, the UK, Europe, Singapore, Thailand, and New Zealand, as well as across Australia, training both students and instructors. 2011 sees Jamilla featuring at the International Pole Convention as well as in Pole Reflections at Sydney Theatre.
Creating The Art of Pole DVD Series has enabled Jamilla to travel and connect with dancers the world over. The series, sometimes described as “the pole dancing bible”, and used by instructors and students alike, broke new ground on its release in 2007, and continues to inspire dancers globally.
Inspired by reaching new heights and helping other dancers to do the same, Jamilla’s love is for instructing, performing, and connecting with dancers everywhere.
