Liz Naguib first discovered pole in July 2014. With an extensive background in classical and commercial dance, she was thrilled to find a “workout” that let her use some of her dance background while challenging her to build new levels of strength and muscle memory.  Though newer to the pole industry, Liz brings with her 18 years of experience as a dance educator. She is a graduate of the University of California, Irvine with a B.A in dance, and has held personal training certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and in Turbokick and P90X group fitness instruction.

She was the only UCI undergraduate selected to perform at Rick Odum's Festival of Solo's and Duets in Paris, France, and co-produced the largest undergraduate show in the university's history to date.  She has been awarded scholarships to Dance Educators of America, Defore Dance Center, U.C. Riverside, and Barebones Dance Theater, as well as being a 2 time UROP Grant Award recipient. 

Liz has worked as a pre-production assistant on Saturday Night Fever for Jean-Anne Ryan Productions, as well as Jason Winters (SYTYCD Australia) rehearsal assistant for his NYC based contemporary company, Omen. She has done industrials for Smashbox Cosmetics, Children of the Night, CBS Studios, and the Little Bra Company.
