As an attentive instructor, Karol loves teaching others to find confidence and strength through the amazing art that is pole dancing!

Karol quickly became famous in the pole dance community for

her incredible pole stunts and unique sexy, flowy dance style

Attending the first ever USPDF National Championships in

March 2009, she was inspired by so many talented ladies,

and excited to meet so many fellow polers that she shared this

passion with.  Karol made a promise to herself that she would try

out for the next USPDF competition, and put in a lot of work to be

the best she could be.  

                                       In the fall, she entered the USPDF East Coast Regionals and was selected as a competitor. She was so excited

to have the opportunity to showcase her skills and share

the stage with so many talented ladies. Training for

weeks on end paid off when Karol came in 1st place and

was awarded pro-status with the USPDF and the title of

USPDF East Coast Champion 2009.

A couple of months later, through Alethea Austin, Karol was

offered a chance to design pole specific clothing catering to polers of

the non-exotic persuasion with a new company by the name of

Bad Kitty.  In February, Karol, Alethea, Mina, and Estee traveled to

Arizona to develop the first line of workout clothes FOR pole dancers,

BY pole dancers and the PoleFit line was born! Karol is a Brand

Director of the new PoleFit line by Bad Kitty as well as her own line

by Bad Kitty to debut in the future.

In March 2010, Karol geared up to compete

in the USPDF Pro National Championship in NYC.

Taking the stage with so many talented ladies and

friends in the audience, Karol was honored to

be one of the competitors in this huge event.  

Again, her training and preparation paid off

when she was awarded runner up and

the title of USPDF Miss Sexy 2010.

Now, Karol travels all over the World teaching workshops at pole dancing studios and performing at various competitions and events.

Growing up a bit of a tom-boy,
Karol Helms loved rollerblading,
dirtbikes, and climbing trees. Typical
"girly" activities were just not
appealing to her. Her mother tried to
get her interested in gymnastics or
dance, but neither lasted for very long.
She was a fearless tomboy and never
let the boys out-do her in anything!  
Always into sports and athletics, Karol
was on the track team in Junior High
and most of High School.  Her love of
movement started when a friend
talked her into trying out for the new
High School dance team with her, and after venturing outside of her comfort zone, she went to tryouts with her friend. To her surprise, she secured a spot on the dance team with her friend and soon discovered how challenging dance actually was.  She was immediately hooked! Soon she discovered that she loved performing and dancing was a fun way to express emotion.

Karol soon discovered pole dancing for fitness and she was amazed!  She immediately researched online to find lessons or instruction and was astonished when she finally found Fawnia's Pole Work Vol 1 DVD. She constructed a home made pole, self taught from the DVD at home, and immediately fell in love with pole dancing.  "Its challenging, acrobatic, and feels like flying!!"

         A couple years later, after YouTube
had become popular, Karol was online
searching again for new pole dancing
moves and people who shared her
infatuation with pole. To her surprise she
found a couple videos of women pole dancing.  
One of those women was Alena Downs.  
After stumbling upon her videos, Karol
realized there was so much more she could
learn and so many more possibilities for pole
dancing. She purchased an XPole, self taught
from Alena's videos, and started posting her
own videos to share.  Karol diligently answered
questions about moves, provided feedback
to others, and showed support to new polers
