A Blend of Art, Business, and Passion

Maple Loo Asaro, Founder, Bobbi's Studios

A Blend of Art, Business, and Passion

Behind the common misconception, pole dancing is generally known for its freedom of expressing feelings through the art of dancing that has evolved over time, from its origins in strip clubs and bars, to a more widely recognised form of fitness and art.

Pole dancing has many different styles, from exotic to sports and there are a plethora of choreographies and dancing movements that one can create and enjoy, whether it's to release stress or to improve one’s fitness and flexibility.

On this episode, we speak to Maple Loo Asaro, Founder of Bobbi’s Studios, a pole dancing studio in Bangsar to discuss the challenges in setting up a pole dancing business and how she managed it through to set up her own studio.

Over the course of the conversation today, Maple helped us to break down the stigma behind pole dancing in Malaysia, how her passion ended up becoming an active business venture and her foreseeable ventures in 2024.
