Amber aka Miss Ember Ashe Owner / Instructor / Performer
In 2007, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Amber found her passion! To her surprise it was pole dancing! She studied for three months while traveling to study the art, falling in love with the body-awareness and empowerment that pole dancing provided. She returned home disappointed to find that pole dancing was quite taboo, and that studios were non-existent in her area. After teaching some pole classes to friends in her home, she realized that she was being called to teach and offer classes in Austin. After doing research on the best schools, certification classes and elite professional competitors, she found Fawnia Mondey in Las Vegas (www.poledancinglasvegas.net) where she went and completed her Pole Dance Instructor Certification (PDIC). In 2010, she officially opened for business.
During her time studying pole in 2008 she discovered an aerial dance company in Austin, TX. Blue Lapis Light (www.bluelapislight.org ) introduced her to a new aerial apparatus called silks. After a year of studying at Blue Lapis, she auditioned and became a dancer/choreographer for the company. Her first performance was in the June 2009 show, “Impermanence”. She has performed in numerous apparatus such as harness, aerial silks, rope, bungee trapeze, and Chinese pole since then and continues to perform in shows for Blue Lapis Light yearly.
Over the last 10 years, Amber has succeeded at her goal of being an example and leader in promoting pole/aerial dancing as a respected, professional sport and dance form. She continues to run and expand her business to touch more lives and share the pole and aerial passion that has become her life!
