A Message from Ania.

You may have already read the Facebook Post but Ania has stepped down as President of the IPDFA.. here is the post by Ania.

“I would like to announce that I am stepping down as President of the International Pole Dance Fitness Association (IPDFA) and I am excited to appoint Samantha Robyn Browne (from Australia) as my replacement, effective 7 September 2016.

I founded IPDFA back in 2007 and since then it has been an amazing ride! I have met many extremely talented, self-driven women and men who inspired me to work for our pole dance industry and be part of its growth over the past decade.

I am sure Samantha, with her years of experience and diplomacy, will lead IPDFA through its 10 year anniversary next year and beyond with huge success.

V Lea is also stepping down as Master Instructor for IPDFA and she has nominated Tracey Ecclestone (from Australia) as her replacement, effective immediately. I want to say thank you to Vee for all her amazing and hard work over a number of years.

Thank you for all those who supported me and my dreams, it has truly been an honor to be part of this incredible industry and to work with so many amazing people.”
