"Life is not about how many breaths we take, but about how many
moments take our breath away." - Fawnia Mondey Dietrich Name:
Hair Color: Blonde
Claim To Fame:
Produced World's 1st Instructional Pole Dance DVD We first
became aware of Fawnia Mondey several years ago, when her
instructional videos first busted out on the scene. Stripping
wasn't quite in vogue yet, and the average mall chick had no
idea what "pole dancing" meant - or that she'd soon be dying to
learn how to do it. But Fawnia had the gift of Zeitgeist, and
she somehow knew the art of striptease was ripe for a revival.
Many dancers (myself included) still count her VHS tape "Dance
Moves and Floor Work" among the many tools of our trade.
Baby faced and vixen-bodied, the Canadian born Fawnia is at once
a blonde bombshell, and the girl next door; the chick you'd do
anything to spend a night with and the girl you want to bring
home to Mom. There's really nothing nasty about Fawnia. Despite
her expertise on the stage floor and the pole, she exudes an
innocence that makes her a favorite with men and women alike. "I
became a dancer because I wanted a job that paid well,"
Fawnia admits. "I've always enjoyed the theater and performing
arts, so exotic dancing was my choice of work. Being a dancer in
Western Canada during the mid-90s was very exciting. We
performed 18 minute shows with theme costumes, fire, and
beautiful pole tricks." Although Fawnia retired from dancing in
1996, she has continued to work in the adult industry and
instruct dancers on how to put "art" into their bump and grind
routines. "My family is very proud of what I've done," she
claims. "They think it's wonderful that I self-produced the
world's first instructional DVD on how to pole dance.
My career as a teacher keeps me very busy, and it's very time
demanding." Fortunately (or unfortunately, as far as our male
readers are concerned) Fawnia has an extremely supportive
husband to help her de-stress. "My husband is extremely
supportive, understanding and proud," she gushes. "I really
value sincerity, confidence, and the ability to be real, and I
have found all of that in him."
While Fawnia has been featured in magazines such as Penthouse,
Muscle Mag International, American Curves and Muscle and
Fitness, Private Dancer Magazine holds a special place in her
heart. "I remember seeing Private Dancer Magazine in 1999 while
living in Vancouver, and thought it would be really exciting to
be on the cover," she recalls. "Private Dancer Magazine does an
excellent job in uniting the clubs, the dancers, and their fans.
As the worlds first exotic dance teacher, I thank them for their
work in the industry." For new dancers who want to learn from
the best, Fawnia can teach you everything you need to know in 6
weeks or less. "I teach more than 80 different pole, dance and
floor moves, and how to put the moves together into routines. My
classes are 4-6 weeks, and I teach everything you need to put on
a great show." Next on Fawnia's "to do" list is the opening of
her new "Pole Fitness Studio in ______________." "It will
compliment my current school at the Body In Mind & Fitness
Boutique," she explains. "I also plan to expand my instructional
