Sergia comes from a background in Contemporary, Latin dance, Performance, and Theatre Arts. She last competed as a salsa dancer in the ESPN World Salsa Championships and holds a Theatre Degree from Tisch School of the Arts, NYU. When she discovered pole, it quickly became her passion and she opened her dance studio, The Vertitude in Los Angeles in 2011. She began her competitive pole dance career in 2012 by taking two Championship titles, and has continued to place top 3 in every competition she has entered. She has a passion for movement and works very closely with her students and peers on choreography for performance and competition pieces all over the world. She began her choreography career as a 4 year old child, putting on shows for her family. Her choreography has been set on The Interweave Dance Theater in Boulder, Colorado, Theatre students in musicals at NYU, her jazz and contemporary students, and now is making it's way into the pole world with her winning pole competition pieces, and her dynamic group pieces.
