House of Pole Ireland was Ella Marie's first baby. She set up her very first studio in Bray when she needed a place to train with likeminded individuals who loved to dance in heels as much as she did. No matter the location, House of Pole has always been a place where people from all walks of life could forget the stress and responsibilities of their daily lives and take some time for themsevles. Whether you step through the doors in Dublin or Bray, it's the students at House of Pole Ireland who make the studio what it is - a place to feel safe, supported and encouraged to become your best self as you fall in love with the wonder that is pole dancing.
Meet the Team
Ella Marie is the proud owner of House of Pole Ireland. She opened her first studio in Bray many moons ago, and it truly was one of the best decisions of her life. It changed her world and she now has her dream job.
Ella is a milf of 2 so if she’s not in the studio shaking her ass she’s at home changing nappies.
Ella Marie loves everything about pole and the pole community, but her true love will always be dancing in heels. She’s won multiple titles across the waters and has well over a decade of knowledge of all things pole.
Ella adores teaching and wants students to come out of her classes feeling on top of the world.
You’ll find her slinking around in her classes on "Melt in your Mouth" Mondays, why don't you join her?

"Hello everyone my name is Guillermo,
I’m originally from Caracas, Venezuela where I started dancing from my room since I’m 13-14 years old, and started going to dance classes at the age of 18. By 20-21 I found Pole dancing and fell in love with it. Dancing has always been one of my biggest outlets to feel free, and that helps me so much with my mental health.
I came to Ireland and then stayed as a Refugee, living through direct provision for over 3 years.
Now I live in Dublin, where I also study Creative Music Production/Sound Engineering in IADT in Dun Laoghaire, while now teaching pole for over three years.
In June 2022 I started performing, finding a mix between my love for dancing and pole. First time In Athlone (Only After Dark), and from there in Dublin (The George, The Grand Social, Lost Lane) Cork, Waterford, Athlone, Thurles, Mullingar (For the first Mullingar pride in 2022), and did my first ever competition for Hell On Heels 2022.
I want to be able to create spaces where people can dance, feel free, getting to know themselves and the capabilities of themselves, their bodies through dancing, while having fun, with nice music, and create community that supports each other, wherever you are from, your background, your language, where we all feel accepted, respected and supported.
And besides dancing, and music lover, others things that fills me with joy is Anime, Vinyl, Videogames (currently playing Zelda Links Awakening hehe), Cinema, and cute figurines"
If you want to show support you can buy me a coffee <3

"I am originally from Zaporizhzhia, Ukraine, where pole dance is developed and competitive sport and dance. I began practicing pole dance in 2016 and since that moment realized pole dance is gonna be a massive and important part of my life. Started working as a pole dance instructor I became experienced and certified instructor. In October 2022 I moved to Dublin realizing I cant stand living without pole dance. I identify myself as a pole addict and can't imagine my life without it.
I have been teaching pole dancing for 3 years, at Fox Pole School in Zaporizhzhia. In 2021 I gained certifications with the best pole dancing organization in Ukraine, the 'Ukrainian Pole Sport Federation'. I have completed these trainings twice and gained two levels, making me a certified instructor for beginners and intermediate students, as well as an additional certificate in teaching upper intermediate level.
For me teaching pole dance has been an absolutely incredible journey. Performing, preparing routines for students and learning all the time are important parts of my life. Since I started pole dancing path, I have learnt and taught my students not only pole moves but being feminine and self confident as well. "
Jillian (she/her) started pole dancing in June 2011 and has been hooked ever since. She loves to share her passion for pole dance and education with others; she completed the XPERT Pole Fitness instructor training in 2013 and this combined with her own experience as a language teacher has laid important foundations for her journey as a true pole professional. She has also gained certifications with Spin City instructor training.
Jillian’s goals as an instructor are to help empower others to feel as good as they can in their own bodies and to help students to overcome challenges, experience triumphs and see improvements at each step of their pole dance journey.
She is certainly has first hand experience of this herself. She says that pole dance has helped her not only to learn how to love her body again after having her son, but also to help her maintain her sense of self when walking away from a relationship that was no longer serving her.
Jillian is also an avid reader, loves to travel and loves to challenge the status quo with some intersectional feminism’.
