Hanka Venselaar

Following her competitive gymnastics career, Hanka started poledancing in 2006. She immediately fell in love with all the acrobatics and artistic possibilities that pole had to offer and has been addicted since the first spin.

Soon, she started teaching, performing and competing. Since the start of her career she has won numerous titles such as European Champion (3 times), Best Pole Tricks at Worlds, the IPC PoleFit title in 2018, Pole Art Champion in Spain, Netherlands and Croatia, first runner-up at the World Cup in Rio de Janeiro and during the Pole Classic in Las Vegas, etc.

Hanka is known for her fast tricks and combinations, but she likes to try different styles and step out of her comfort zone, so each new act will hold something different and challenging.

She loves teaching and meeting new students and pole lovers from all over the world. She considers herself lucky to have had the chance to teach in each continent of the world. (Ok, except for Antartica).

Hanka is also an experienced aerialist, using her strength and skills in aerial silks, aerial hoop and aerial cube.
