KPM is taking a break for Summer 2021 beginning July 1st. We'll offer pop-up classes and series throughout the summer with hopes to return to a regular weekly schedule in the Fall. Jamie continues to teach in-person classes at Defy Gravity Pole and Aerial Arts Studio in Urbana, IL.
Jamie began teaching movement classes at Defy Gravity in August of 2015 and began Kitty Power Movement during the 20-21 COVID-19 pandemic to continue moving with her students online.
At Defy Gravity, She developed and teaches Fluffy Kitty™ Pole, a class for plus-sized individuals. With certifications from ElevatED (Levels 1 and 2) and PoleandAerial.com (Pole and Pole Silks), Jamie also teaches Burlesque, Bend and Flex, Bend and Rest, WERQ, and a variety of Pole classes. She has also completed her 200 hr Yoga Teacher Training with Carly Stong (https://www.carlystong.com/).
This is a space for all bodies to feel seen and heard, especially those that have felt left out, ignored or ridiculed in traditional wellness spaces.
Jamie’s extensive background in performance naturally led her to fall in love with the sensual and comedic aspects of burlesque, but she also enjoys exploring all other styles of pole, dance, and movement.
As a performer, Jamie is committed to performances focused on intersectional feminism, fat liberation, and unapologetic self-expression. She is also a fierce lover of cats.
