Meet R&R non-judge David C. Owen

Co-Founder & Instructor of Catalyst Movement Arts in Chicago, IL. Learn this & more at Catalyst Movement Arts!

David C Owen began pole dancing in 2009 and began to compete and showcase nationally within less than a year of his initial exposure to pole. He earned several competition medals in the early US competitive pole dancing circuit. Having had studio residencies in multiple cities and spent years touring to guest instruct at countless studios in the US and internationally, David has been instrumental industry-wide in improving the quality of flexibility training, creative combination construction, and explaining the applied physics of how specific pole skills work. He now enjoys teaching pole dancing ranging from introductory classes for persons with no exercise experience, to choreographing competitive routines for other dancers on national stages. He is pleased to be based in Chicago to share his experience at Catalyst Movement Arts, where he continues to grow as a technician and artist.
During his visit for R&R, David is teaching the 90-minute workshop BEND: Get more flexibility into the moves you already do! on Sunday, January 13 in Minneapolis, MN and Mankato, MN, and on Monday, January 14th in Rochester, MN. 

Meet R&R non-judge Rachele Ribera! Rachele is a pole dancer & lover of movement exploration. Learn more about Rachele at her website:

Noted by United Pole Artists for her "ethereally beautiful pirouettes, glides, twirls," and "unbeatable footwork", in the 2015 article, Fundamentals for Fluidity, Rachele has spent a large part of her time in pole refining and cultivating the art of dancing in heels.  

She views the heel as an extension of the leg, that can elongate lines, and aid in creating intricate tracing patterns and illusions.  Mentioned again by United Pole Artists in the 2015 article, The Anatomy of A Platform Heel, as one of their "favorite heeled dancers" with the "ability to make heel movement something ethereal", she showcases some of her technique here, in Moonshine.


During her upcoming visit for R&R, Rachele is teaching BOXWORK: How to walk, glide, dance, and trace in your high heels! Sunday, Jan 13 in Minneapolis and Mankato. Register here for BOXWORK!

Fair trade coffee & tea helps you learn to dance!

Hi Frestylers!


Some of you may remember last year when we did our Equal Exchange fundraiser. Frestyl students sold organic, fair trade chocolate, coffee, tea, & other goodies to family, friends, or just themselves, and 40% of their sales went straight into their Frestyl accounts --to use for anything Frestyl sells!


We’re proudly kicking off our Equal Exchange fundraiser again! Just like last time, there is no minimum order and the money you raise for yourself can go toward anything Frestyl sells. Whether you sell $10 in coffee and use $4 off your next purchase of open pole or legwarmers, or sell $1000 of goodies and use $400 for your own xpole & some private lessons, we hope you enjoy giving yourself a boost with this fun catalog fund raiser! Catalogs and sample products (while they last) will be available in Frestyl lessons from Saturday, Sept 9 through Saturday, Sept 23! Orders are due in the studio by Saturday, September 23! 


More details: Equal Exchange products are delicious and ethically produced. You can find these items in our local food co-coops, including the St. Peter Food Coop in St. Peter MN and Seward Coop in Minneapolis, MN. Because we signed up early (thanks again to Rachel Sandstrom!), an additional 10% of sales fund the event including a very special all-levels pole party on Saturday, October 21, to be hosted by the location with the highest sales! This is a pole party you won’t soon forget - Yes, you can totally invite the folks who order from you to our celebratory pole party! The party will be free for all to attend.
