Pattye Bohnet
Pattye Bohnet
Pattye’s parents enrolled her in dancing school at the age of 4 because they thought that this would relieve her of being painfully shy. They happened to be right. Through the years she has been trained in all forms of dance, but her emphasis was on being a competitive USGF Gymnast. After a few years of teaching Gymnastics she retired her leotard at the age of 22. Coming to an end of a long hiatus, Pattye realized that something had been missing in her life. Through prayer it occurred to her that she missed dance and gymnastics but immediately discounted it because of her age. However, she found herself in an introductory class at a pole dancing studio which was the perfect blend of her former training of gymnastics and dance. Pattye knew immediately she was home and became on fire with this new found means of self expression. As her passion for pole dancing continues, she is excited about having the opportunity to share and help woman discover their sensual side as well as develop their inner and outer strength.
