Michula Nunez is a native Californian who grew up doing competitive gymnastics. She developed her love for teaching/coaching quite early when she
began instructing gymnastics at the age of 12. Michula soon found that teaching was her calling and found that motivating and believing in the
potential and achievements of her students was fulfilling and sought other ways to attain this as her means.
In her early 20’s, she was head of the mathematics department at a private school in Ojai CA, where she instructed the 4th - 12th grades. She later
went back to school to earn her credential to make her love for teaching official. While earning her certificate, she was also teaching elementary school
science at The Pegasus School, Huntington Beach, CA where she created a highly-regarded science curriculum for the lower school science program
for grades K - 3.
Never forsaking her love for fitness, Michula discovered pole dancing 12 years ago and soon began instructing it in the evenings in 2002. With the
trained and natural ability of a teacher, she was able to break down and teach the most difficult elements to her clients. For six years, Michula
continued to teach science during the day and instruct pole dancing, Pilates, and Spin in the evenings. Yet she soon realized that she preferred to
teach pole dancing due to its creativity and its potential to be recognized as a legitimate sport/art. It was then that Antix Fitness Studio was born in July
2006 with her studio opening soon thereafter.
Antix offers expert instruction for all levels – beginners to competitive/professional, workshops, pole conditioning and now offers a basic and advanced
certification course for instructors. She melds her total of 10 years of academia teaching experience with her 14 years of technical expertise of pole
dancing to a perfect unification. No other facility that offers pole dancing classes offers the professionalism or expertise as Antix.
Antix Fitness Studio opened in February of 2007. Michula, as a master-instructor, sets the bar and maintains the highest of instructional and
performance standards in the industry of pole dancing for fitness. Antix Fitness is a world-renown pole dance studio with an world-wide following. At
Antix, pole dancing classes are student-centered. From step-by-step instruction to a more hands-off approach, each level offers students unique
opportunities to gain increasing skill, confidence, and competency as a dancer. Classes are designed such that with each increasing level, the
student experiences a new level of independence in designing the choreography and implementation of their own character. Ultimately, the goal at
Antix is for the student to perform as a skilled dancer/aerialist whereby she successfully designs a routine from choosing the music, tricks/spins,
transitions, poses, and floor work! Each one-hour class incorporates proper warm-up and warm-down, pole safety, and suitable modifications. Check
the table below for a brief description of each class with specifications on appropriate levels.
Michula, as a leader in the pole revolution, has also set the bar for showcasing pole dancing in its proper light and is a– as an athletic art – both on the
local scale and throughout the nation. Her clients monthly showcase their talent at The Underground in Redlands, Ca which helps to raise the
awareness that pole dancing is indeed an art and sport. Most recently, Michula, produced and promoted the first professional and national showcase
on the West Coast during the summer of 2009, “Rock the Pole” where 13 of the world’s top dancers performed at each venue! Michula won the title of
California’s “Most Athletic” in the 2009 California Pole Dance Championship and was a pro- finalist for the USDPF National Competition in 2009. As
the West Coast Representative for the United States Pole Dancing Federation, Michula helped to organize this regional competition. Michula is also
an original member of the “VertiGirls”, a traveling troupe of elite aerialists that performed at various venues, including for the first time ever The House
of Blues, Hollywood, Ca! Michula is also a founder member of the newest non-profit non-organization, East Meets West Pole Events and ran/organized
two national competitions, The Tri-Pole Challenge on the west coast and the Polarity Competition on the east coast. Michula currently is the
Ambassador for PFA (Pole Fitness Association) and a global fitness representative team member for Pole Dance International Magazine.
