ANNIE NORRIS

My name is Annie Norris I have been in the pole industry since 2001, before twisty grips and Fonjis. I own Pure-Studios in Hereford for over 12 years, and we have just moved to a brand new huge studio which is my dream playground.  I love to teach and find others full potential, watching people achieve more than they ever thought they could is the best feeling ever. I have won UK titles previously and currently am UKPPCs Best Entertainer and Sponsors choice. I love judging the WAPC - the standard is always so unbelievably high. Thank you for having me back!
