Ira is the founder and sole owner of Chrome Divas Pole Dance & Fitness studio. She took ballet, belly dancing and cheer dancing as a child but moved to mix martial arts later as an adult.
Her first experience on the pole was in 2010 and next thing she knew she was travelling around the globe to train and take workshops with top pole athletes like Lou Landers, Melody, Carli Hunter, Amy Hazel, Justine Mc Lucas, Polina Ginger, etc. Her love for pole expanded to other apparatuses like Aerial Hoop, Silks and Exotic dance.
Upon opening her studio, she created and produced the first International Exotic Pole Dance Battle in the Philippines running for 3 years. This competition is graced by local and international competitors. Judged by Eva Bembo, Andre, Melody, Jamaica Jornacion, Christina Dy, Daria Che, Vika, Tessa Yung, Lance Santiago and Nina Bee.
Ira believes that it is not what we can do but how we do it on any aerial equipment or dance style we choose.

Maan Ilustre has always been dancing ever since she was a little girl. She was forced to put her love for dance in the back seat to focus on her studies and consequently, her career after college.
She had the opportunity to take up her first love as a form of fitness. In 2013, after her resignation from the company she ran for 13 years, she decided to take a break and took ballet, jazz, contemporary ballet and pole dance. Soon there after she developed an undying love for aerial arts having enjoyed pole dance and aerial hoops. In 2016 she took the XPert Certification to teach Spinny pole and aerial hoops.
Today, she enjoys balancing her work, her passion for writing as editor in chief of juan.com.ph, and aerial and exotic dance to feed her soul.
