Tammy “Bam Bam” Grindlay

Tammy aka BamBam is a Brisbane based professional pole dancer and instructor. She has a background in Jazz dance and a passion for performing.

Growing up she was constantly running, jumping, dancing or climbing trees. So when she came across pole it was love at first sight.

Tammy is a passionate instructor and a huge advocate for injury prevention through the application of strength training and correct engagement. She is a qualified personal trainer and has a sadistic love of conditioning. Her love for teaching pole is obvious and her enthusiasm infectious.

Tammy is proud to be an Indi Pole Wear spokeswoman and Glitter Pimp Shoes ambassador.
