Carousel Fitness, founded by Dina Elhifnawi in 2019, is the first Aerial Arts & Fitness Academy in Bahrain. Her goal as the owner and lead instructor is to empower women and to motivate her students to accomplish what they thought their body could never do. Dina was first introduced to pole fitness in 2014 at Pole Fit Egypt, this is where she became addicted to the sport and started instructing two years later.

After getting married, Dina moved to Bahrain and decided to share her passion with women in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia and starting the #PoleFitBahrain movement. She started by teaching pole at a Dance Studio with only two stage poles, as more people started discovering pole, she decided to open the first aerial arts & fitness academy in Bahrain - Carousel.
