Text about Maria
Maria is 47 years old and has been training pole for 5 years. For her, pole should be expressive movement, hard strength training and a good portion of adrenaline ..... and mega fun. She gets high by getting people to succeed with tricks and challenge / develop their body awareness. And is aware that we are all different and it is important that everyone gets success and good training regardless of level. When she is not hanging upside down in a pole, she lives in Himmelev with her husband, 2 children aged 11 and 14, and a cat and a turtle. And then she's a real garden nerd, and likes to rummage for many hours in the family's large garden. In addition, she works daily as production manager in Køge.
Without the help of family, friends and a host of other volunteers for Casa Bailar’s own events, it would be difficult to hold so many different events throughout the year.
And without all these people making a huge difference for Casa Bailar, it would also be only half as pleasant to walk away. Along the way, people laugh, eat and dance, all the while working hard to ensure that our customers / guests have the most fantastic experiences at Casa Bailar.
Thank you to all of you who make a difference for Casa Bailar !!!
