Buffalo’s longest running premier Pole Dancing Studio was opened in 2005 in the thriving North Buffalo business district on Hertel Avenue by Chelsea Kelly who recently retired to open an Animal Rescue Farm – Country Honk Farm in Tennessee.
The new owner Susan has kept with the successful lesson plans that were developed through Pole Play and creating the studio's success. Pole Play is now known as Pole, Barre, and Fitness Studio, Inc. (PBF) All classes offered are taught by the owner Susan leveraging her extensive experience of dance and fitness. The program was created with sequential learning levels to promote weight-loss, flexibility, strength building, and cardiovascular endurance.
Susan is a professionally trained ballerina that danced with the Empire State Ballet performing in The Nutcracker, Coppelia, and Sleeping Beauty. She attended Performing Arts with a major in Dance, cheered with the Buffalo Destroyers and danced with Eye Candy Burlesque. She is certified as a Ballet Barre instructor through Buffalo Barre and is a Certified Personal Trainer through National Academy of Sports Medicine and she is an RN at a local hospital. Susan has been personally trained by Chelsea Kelly (founder and creator of Pole Play) and she follows the lesson plans and continues the classes that has made Pole Play what it is today. "I'm excited to witness everybody's personal success and accomplishments through our fitness journey together".
