About PolePedia

PolePedia is an online, community-based resource for pole dancing.

The idea was born in Providence, RI and the officially launched on August 26th, 2018 by three individuals with a passion for athleticism and performance. Through their partnership, determination, and individual skillsets, they were able to build and create the community you are a part of today with your help.


What you see is built not only by a few fellow pole dancers’ passions and love of the art but YOUR suggestions, requests, dreams, and ideas.


PolePedia’s mission is to promote the art of pole dancing by providing a consolidated community-based resource; tackling concerns, basic and advanced techniques, and proper form in one place, all while having a ton of fun doing it.

By creating a community-based stream of information, backed by informational videos and articles, PolePedia aims to help pole dancers, beginner and experienced alike, train safely and more efficiently.

Destynnie Hall

Destynnie@PolePedia.com | @DeciduousFern

Destynnie first discovered and began pole dancing in November of 2017 after moving to Providence, RI. As a full-time co-owner and director of the copywriting and marketing division of her business, she fell in love with pole dancing to incorporate movement and activity into her daily routine.

While she does not come from any dance background, she has trained and competed in gymnastics and Shorin-Ryu martial arts. When she wasn’t training, she could be found listening to music or participating in an arrangement of other hobbies such as swordsmanship, archery, and theater. She has a solid understanding of body awareness, as well as a love of body mechanics and proper form.

Priscilla Benkhart


With 10 years of pole dancing experience, 20 years as an athlete, a tri-varsity athlete in high school, and a lifetime of dancing alone in her room, Priscilla has always been moving her body. Pole dancing was a curiosity for her, and she got her first taste working at exotic clubs in 2009. The athleticism and showmanship of pole dancing was immediately recognized and loved, so she did everything in her power to get better.

Once she finished college and left the circuit in 2011, she continued training while living in NYC. Later, she moved to Rhode Island and began teaching.

In 2017, Priscilla placed Silver (2nd) in PSO Northeast for Level 4 Exotic. In 2018, she placed Gold (1st) in USPDF for Level 2 Novice Sexy.

Elliot Berard

Elliot really dislikes talking in the third person, so I won’t anymore.

I grew up in North Providence Rhode Island, and early in my twenties I ran away from everyone to join the rennaissance faire circuit with having little in the way of skill. While there I started practicing way too maky skills at once and worked to become a performer.

I’m a juggling acrobatic magician who was trained by a french mime named Arsene.

After a decade of performing I decided to turn my attention elsewhere and started my own Web Dev company with Destynnie Hall, and soon specialized in SEO.

I tend to be on the hidden back end of things, so you won’t hear from me as much as you do the other two, but I will be chiming in from time to time!
