“Rare” means we think that we are not good and not experience enough in our performance. However, it also means that we have much more space to improve as well as have chance to discover personal capabilities.

Stina Din has been passionate about sports and arts since young. She became a professional graphic designer upon graduation. Without any dance background, she started pole dancing in 2014. In the course of learning and training, Stina Din discovered the variety and artistry of pole dancing, and from there she began to attempt different kinds of dance. She has been constructing her own dancing style through blending and mixing the features of contemporary dance and pole dance. She believes that every move in dance is an opportunity for self-conversation. Through creating and performing, she hopes to explore and express the unspeakable emotions, and paint the flow in the air with her dancing as brush strokes.

Stina Din has taken part in various local and overseas pole dance competitions and received numerous awards: AirStars Competition (2019) - Third Place, Amateur Division; Next Pole Star Competition (2018) - Overall Champion. Since 2019, she has been a full time pole dance instructor at Spinderella Pole Studio.
