Danielle Tillie's pole dancing journey began in 2009 as an alternative form of fitness. What she discovered was a beautiful art form, with its roots planted in strength, sensuality, and self expression. Since she began teaching at Bella Forza Fitness in Cincinnati in 2011, her goal has been to bring this artistic dance into the minds and hearts of men and women throughout her community. She is proud to have co-founded Passion: A Pole Troupe with the goal of showcasing pole dance as an art form in her home city of Cincinnati!
Danielle is proud to announce that she placed 8th out of 33 competitors in the first Arnold Amateur Pole Championships at the Arnold Sports Festival 2015! She was also first runner up at Pole Sport Organization's Central Pole Championships 2014 in the Professional Division and 2nd place at The Great Midwest Pole Dance Competition 2013 in the Midwest Elite Division. Danielle has also guest performed for Girl Next Door:Chicago in June 2014, Dance Wicked for a Week in Negril, Jamaica in 2013, the Midwest Presentational in October 2014, and Speak To Me: A Pole Benefit for Autism in 2015.
