About this pro

How does your business stand out?

My work stands out because of my education. I was taught by professionals who always stressed safety first, form, and then function. I also believe that special customer service should be reserved for my continued students as a thank you for staying with me.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love the 1-on-1 and small groups so that I can build a personal relationship with each of my students and not just a treats them like a customer but a friend for the long run.

    Kristen is an amazing teacher! Very passionate about what she does. Im currently taking pole classes from her and I've learned so much in almost 6mo. I will continue to taking classes from her. I would definitely recommend this to my friends/and anyone. Thank you Kristen!

    I am very uncoordinated and possibly one of the clumsiest people in the world and I am amazed at what I have learned to do from the classes I have gone to. Kristen is awesome and very patient. She is very experienced so all levels of dancers are welcomed in her class. She also makes you feel extremely comfortable. She is a tough cookie but her honesty is very refreshing. I would suggest that if you want to try one class to go for it! You will have so much fun. :)

    Such a great experience! Even if you're feeling unsure, Kristen is great at easing you into the class and making you feel comfortable. Definitely recommend Toy Box Pole Studio to anyone who wants to try Pole!

    In addition to helping me lose weight, I'm physically stronger than I've ever been thanks to the classes at The Toy Box. Having a full hour on my own pole (instead of sharing like some studios I've been to in the past) makes a HUGE difference to the workout I get. Taking pole classes here is the highlight of my week and the fitness and health lessons I've learned are invaluable!

    I started with Kristen the end of January '13. She worked with me...I had no pole strength.. Encouraging me to try different moves. Over a period of months her encouragement and my increased strengh I became able to do and be the amazon woman I see in myself...a strong self confident woman. I love the teaching style she uses in class.. Showing the moves and explaining the parts in breakdown. Even when a student (me) has a BAD day, she understands completely and is able to encourage. I love the school and students. I plan one day to become good enough to compete as an old woman in her middle about 2 years?

    I just started taking classes at The Toy Box Pole Dance Studio and I have to say I was very impressed. Kristen is very helpful, patient and fun. I was taught basic moves which was great since I have never taken a class like this one before. Overall it was a great experience and look forward to many more classes.

    Despite your crazy schedule you still give me all you've got and it shows, keep up the great work!


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look around. The service I offer is based on my education and I am not just some Joe off the street who woke up one day and decided this is what I wanted to do. Also I choose to keep my prices lower so my students and afford to take classes for longer periods of time to develope into the best they can be.
