It is the largest Brazilian and international recognition. She has taught and performed in many countries, always being hired for events and tours of classes.

Rafaela conducts performances of Pole Dance Stops Hands, Dance and Dance Shows Air.

At sixteen, after attending a Cirque Du Soleil, she decided to start with the circus career and was approved at the renowned École Nationale des Arts du Cirque in Rosny-sous-bois, France. She attended during the year and a half, and because of family problems, she had to end on the fourth year of the course.

When she returned to Brazil, Rafaela missed the theoretical foundations to evolve and specialize as an athlete and teacher, so decided to study Physical Education at the university. In the same period practiced Wushu Kung-fu, being a member of the Brazilian national team in 2006.

She began her career as a Pole Dancer in May 2009, conquering titles Brazilian Champion and South America with only 5 months of training. Undoubtedly, Pole Dance was love at first sight. The following year Rafaela started her career as a teacher of the sport and increased her daily workouts, winning three titles in major championships worldwide category, won the prize "Pole Tricks" - awarded to the best athlete who performs stunts - and also the Third at Miss Pole Dance World 2010 in Switzerland, was also champion in the category FIT International Pole Championship 2010 in Tokyo.
During 2011, Rafaela won the titles of National Champion in the category of World Cup Pole and Vice Champion in the international category. After a period away by injury, she returned to training and won the title of champion in the category bi-FIT International Pole Championship 2012 in Hong Kong, and Bi-South American Championship in Argentina.

Rafaela believes that winning is possible for everyone, provided there is commitment to the activity, focus and determination.
