Caprice Burrell - C.E.O. & Chief Instructor

 

Caprice Burrell is the personality behind Alter-Ego Pole Fitness & Wellness Studio. As an accredited actress (SAG/AFTRA), recording artist and commercial print model, pole fitness gave Caprice another outlet to express her creativity. And express it she has! For almost 8 years, Caprice put in hard work and diligent dedication under the tutelage of some of the best pole instructors in the NYC area (learning one “pole trick” at a time) which helped her to discover her own pole identity accentuating sass, style and technique. Caprice believes that “It’s not just about poling but the person behind the pole” and she has promised to provide an encouraging supportive environment where everyone feels right at home while sharing the passion of pole that she loves so much. Caprice has performed in pole showcases, made appearances at different pole studios, and hosted hundreds of bachelorette/birthday parties for women. Caprice continues to evolve as a pole fitness athlete sharing all of her new skills with others.
