The Team

A young professional in a new city with no local friends.

A working single mother staying afloat through a divorce.

A native Austinite roller derby chick who found the circus.

These are some of the people who make up soFly Social instruction team. Our different paths converged together to this moment and we are excited to guide you through your own movement journey.

Luki Martino

Co-Owner | Pole, Flexibility

“I pole dance because I’m fucking crazy. I’m 40 years old. I should be in a retirement home and not on a pole... maybe I should say something more professional. I love watching people come out of their shell and working with them to move in interesting and unexpected ways. Oh, I also like to dance slutty.”

“My journey into pole dance has brought me strength, health, art, expression, a community of the greatest friends, and so much more. I love being able to share that with others and watch them grow in their dance and themselves.”

Instructor | DANCE

"As an instructor you often see nervous new students come into class. They usually start class unsure of what their body can or wants to do but then they always leave feeling like they have connected with themselves. Witnessing the freedom that shines through and knowing you helped get them there is incomparable."

FAVE FOOD BREAKFAST! ALWAYS BREAKFAST!

Instructor | CONDITIONING

"My clients inspire me to be better. I love helping people get their body strong in a balanced way, while learning how to use proper form. I love helping people reach goals they thought were impossible. I am a performance artist, trained first in physical theater, and love how each person moves and expresses themselves differently. "
