Michelle Shimmy

Michelle Shimmy is an entrepreneurial force to be reckoned with, as co-founder of the Pole Dance Academy and the world’s largest pole dancing competition, Pole Theatre. Having previously had a successful career as a corporate lawyer, Michelle made the leap with her sister Maddie to self-employment, deciding to follow her passion and open their own pole dancing studio. Seven years later, these young female entrepreneurs are taking the business world by storm, currently operating 3 studios across Sydney and travelling the globe to share their pole dancing skills with up and coming performers.
