Ruth has been emerged in the world of arts from the age of 4, beginning with ballet, tap, and jazz. She brings twelve years of instruction and competition to her teaching with concurrent yoga, ballroom dance, and fitness pursuits. She believes in movement as both a healing art and as a form of personal expression. There is a strong focus on correct alignment and form. Variations for poses and sequences allow for all levels to find an appropriate balance of challenge and comfort while developing inner awareness.
"No matter what shape, size, age, or skill level... everyone supports each other and becomes a family. It is important that the ladies taking a pole class feel comfortable with their bodies and external interpretation of who they are inside. If there is any way to help improve your self-awareness and confidence, I will strive to get you there."

Adel first fell in love with pole dancing in 2011. However due to school, work, and moving around, she was not able to pole consistently until 2015 when she finally settled down in the greater Philadelphia area. The majority of her training has been at Pole Haus (Philadephia, Pennsylvania) and she has also taken workshops with pole legends such as Michelle Natoli. Her pole idols include Anastasia Skukhtorova, Daria Chebotova, Dirdy Birdy, Julia Wahl, and Karol Helms.
Adel has a technical, sporty style, and loves any tricks or poses that incorporate her signature straddle flexibility. What Adel loves most about pole dance is the fact that there is a place for everyone within the pole sphere. Whether one is graceful and fluid, sporty and athletic, or gifted with natural flexibility, there will always be a place for that person.
Since the birth of her baby boy in June 2018, she has been based out of northern Delaware. She is extremely excited to have found a pole studio local to her home and to be a part of the Elevations family.
