experience in teaching
Holly Mischell Miely ~ Honey
Holly started ballet, dance and acrobatics classes at age 4 and began teaching at her dance studio at age 12. She went on to receive a minor degree in dance from the University of Arizona and has been teaching spinning and other group fitness classes since college. A self taught pole dancer since 2006, Holly was hooked from day one. Holly is a certified master pole dance and aerial yoga instructor, RYT200 and ambassador to the Pole Fitness Association (PFA). She has founded Atmosphere Fitness Aspen in 2006 in the Aspen valley, Colorado which offers exclusive private and semi-private instruction in pole dance, aerial Yoga, aerial silk and lyra.
She recognized a need for quality techniques and education for instructors in the aerial arts industry. She took her 25 years of teaching experience and offers instructor certification programs for pole dance, aerial hammock yoga, flexibility, Pilates and suspension fitness and aerial hoop lyra.
Holly took her skills in dance and performance a step further in 2008 when she created & founded Atmosphere Entertainment, a mixed dance performance group. She is the Founder, choreographer, artistic director & lead pole dancer of the group which incorporates pole dance, group dance, belly dance, fire & sword dance. "It is Cirque Du Soleil meets Pussycat Dolls put together with themes and costuming to create an exciting, sexy show." Atmosphere Entertainment also creates custom events on request.
As a creative writing major, Holly began using her writing skills as a way to reach her clients on a deeper more personal level. She delved deeply into the psychology and healing aspects of pole and aerial arts infusion her intuitive natural healing power into her classes and privates sessions. She is a guide to teachers and clients. A blogger, a feminine empowerment leader and a nurturing friend to her clients, she continues to develop her skills on a deeper level to help her clients and teacher trainees on their journeys to self discovery.
