Nina Reed

Nina is the organizer of Pole Theatre USA and the Colorado Pole Championship. She is also a pole and aerial dance photographer. Nina has been an active member of the Instagram pole community for four years as @ninapoles, and she was incredibly excited for the opportunity to become an Indi polewear influencer this year! 

We wanted to know a little more about Nina

Describe yourself in five words!

Optimistic, outdoorsy, adventurous, talkative and epistemophilic

How long have you been pole dancing?

I took my first pole class in August 2011, so five years now!

Did you do anything else, exercise related, before pole?

I grew up as a very active kid in Norway, hiking mountains, cross-country skiing and swimming. When I moved to Colorado I tried taking up some of the same activities, and tried and failed at going to normal gyms, so it wasn't until I found pole that I truly started exercising.

Please show us your favorite combo at the moment!

Anything brass monkey! :-) 

If you could do a pole photoshoot anywhere in the world, where would it be?

My dream pole photo shoot location is Lofoten, Norway, because it is one of the few places in Norway where I've never been but always wanted to go. I'd love to do a pole shoot there in the summer, because the midnight sun means there is beautiful lighting for so much longer than anywhere else!

Three things you love about Indi polewear?

The cheeky cut of the Samba bottoms, that the colors mix and match so well, and that I can wear my Indi to the beach!
