Quinn McCrimmon wanted to be a Ballerina when she grew up! She was classically trained from 3 years old and continued studying many dance forms until and throughout University. Quinn was skeptical about her first Pole class, but was curious as well, so she joined in for her cousin’s birthday celebration and immediately fell in love!! The mix of athleticism, skill and grace, combined with her dance background created an addiction that led to a new journey.
Quinn brought Pole Fitness to Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands in 2011. More recently in November 2016 she established the first Pole and Aerial Studio in the Caymans and is now pleased to combine over 25 years experience and certifications in Fitness & Health, Dance, Pilates, Pole, Aerial, Zumba, Personal Training, Yoga and Nutrition. Quinntessential Movement Studio is a dream come true and hopes to be a place of happiness, growth and fulfillment for many.
Michelle has always been an artistic, creative person and a performer. As a child and teen, she was classically trained in ballet, tap, jazz and hip hop, but took a break when she moved to Cayman in 1998. She began taking chairlesque classes with Quinn in 2012 and a year later, discovered the world of pole fitness and dance, and was instantly hooked. Michelle has attended the annual Pole Expo in Las Vegas for four years, studying under pole instructors such as Marion Crampe, Sarah Scott, Evgeny Greshilov and Michelle Shimmy, as well as many others. For her, pole dancing is the perfect combination of fitness and artistic expression because it requires a balance of strength, flexibility, grace and most importantly personality and style.
