Fawnia Mondey

Background

I am a dance instructor, fitness model, writer and actress. In 1998, I self-produced the world's first instructional pole dance video making me a pioneer of what's now America's latest fitness craze: Pole Dancing for Fitness!

United Pole Artists is excited to announce Fawnia Dietrich as the first Pro-Poler of the Year for 2011!

I have appeared on the cover of Muscle Mag International, Body of Science, Canadian Health & Fitness, Body Talk, as well as in Muscle & Fitness, Oxygen, Flex, Ironman, Natural Bodybuilding & Fitness, Ms. Fitness and many others, including Playboy's special editions (4 times), and Playboy's "Best of Canadian Girls 2004" calendar.

In 2005, I had made my first appearance on the American stage, placing 3rd at the Emerald Cup, and the following week competed in the PNC Pittsburg Amateur & Pro Show. I placed 1st at the BC Championships on Aug 6th, 2005, re-qualifying me for the Canadian Nationals in 2006.

Goal: Earning my Pro Card as a Figure competitor.

Since 2005 I have been living in Las Vegas where I have the luxury of teaching women (and men) from around the world how to pole dance. I wrote the course for the Pole Dance Instructors Certification (PDIC) and the forward for The Complete Idiot's Guide to Exotic and Pole Dancing. Next time you are in Las Vegas, come by the studio for a class!
