Our founder, Giannina Galleres Di Gianvito has been working as an international tax lawyer for 17 years in 3 different countries, Peru, Spain and England. During the pregnancy of my second baby, my husband and I moved to Geneva, Switzerland and I had to stop to working. Once the baby joined the nursery, I started to look for a part time job as a lawyer in Geneva, unfortunately it was impossible to find one allowing to balance my professional life and my family. With a husband travelling every week, it was not an option to take a full time job.
One day, a good friend from Geneva gifted me a free pole Dance class for my 41st birthday. That day, my life changed forever.
I remember very clearly my first pole dance class, had to remain very focused and I found it very challenging, so it caught my attention. After that I decided to take classes twice a week, and after 3 months I was taking classes 3 times a week, plus training by myself everyday. 7 months later I met the 2018 World Pole Dance Champion title-holder in Dubai and that day changed my life as well. With her I discovered the importance of working on your flexibility and body mobility to progress in Pole Dance.
During this process, I realised that pole dancing is really a complete sport and requires dedication, perseverance, hard work and passion to be able to practice it at high level. And this is what I decided to do.
After close to two years of daily hard training and after being trained by the best of the best, I decided to open my little studio and show the world that everybody can start from Zero, without any sport background, and get very far. This is how Free Spirit started and this is the essence of our studio. Everybody can be as strong and powerful as they decided to be, and you can do this in a beautiful and peaceful environment, full of joy and harmony. Our aim is that each student comes to the class and forgets about their life's troubles, and simply enjoys flying around the pole, the most peaceful and strong sensation you can have.
