Studio Fly is a fitness studio with a difference. We teach a wide variety of dance and gymnastic inspired classes in a friendly and supportive environment. Most of our classes are aerial but we sometimes let your feet touch the floor! For our full range of classes take a look at our 'what we teach' page. 



Studio Fly owners, Claire and Lisa, met at school in 1991 but drifted apart when their lives took them in different directions. Ten years later they reunited when Claire invited Lisa to her first pole dance and fitness class.

Claire, a chartered accountant, started pole dancing classes in 2006 in London with a friend who wanted to lose weight. After training at several pole schools and realising how much she loved it she retrained as a fitness instructor and set up Claire’s Polercise in Hatfield in 2009. Claire has a background in dance and has also trained in aerial hoop, silks (tissue), Chinese pole and trapeze.

Lisa, with a background in fashion design and a job in sales and marketing, started Claire’s pole classes, after having her son, to get fit. Not only did she find a 6-pack but she regained the confidence she had lost after becoming a mum! Lisa started teaching pole dancing in Harlow and Bishops Stortford in 2012 and with Claire formed the company, ‘We Heart Pole’. A former gymnast, Lisa has also trained in aerial hoop and zerogravity yoga and more recently, she has discovered poi and firefans!

Claire and Lisa have opened Studio Fly as a safe and welcoming space to enjoy all forms of aerial arts and exercise, meet new people and have fun.
