Quick bio

After doing competitive gymnastics for 11 yrs I played outdoor soccer for a good 10years and somewhere in between that I fell in love with pole and found myself teaching pole too! I started competing just last year and was very lucky to walk away with runners up at VPC and 2nd runners up at APC. I recently won Rising Stars and Pole Candy 2015 and am excited to make the transition from amateur/semi pro to professional at VPC later this year!

How long have you been doing pole dancing?

Have been pole dancing about 4-5yrs now

The moment you realised you love pole dancing?

My first class – absolutely loved it!!

[youtube_sc url=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0a3FYPk1dc”]

Describe your style?

I was never blessed with natural flex, even with my gymnastics background so I would say I’m more dynamic, enjoy tumbles and I’m very “gymmy” haha! luv me some flips and anything acrobatic!! Something to get the adrenaline pumping. I’m a HUGE fan of static so most of my routines have more static rather then spin !!

Favourite move?

There’s way too many but I do luv a good pole assisted back sault, flip up onto the pole and swing spin to punch front. Anything flippy haha!

Any hobbies or passions outside of pole dancing?

Yes I run my own hip hop dance school and I work as a nurse during the day which I’m very passionate about !! Also addicted to watching dance moms haha!!

Describe how it feels to be performing and competing amongst some of the best pole dancers in the world?

Have just started my transition from amateur/semi pro to professional this year and already I feel like the talent of our local and national polers is insane!!! I feel incredibly lucky and blessed to be apart of it all! I have grown so much and continue to strive because I’m surrounded by so many inspirational polers!!

I teach pole Mondays and Wednesday’s, and I train Monday Tuesday and Thursday. I see my physio every week and usually try and rest on the weekends. I run my hip hop school Friday nights.

Quick Bio

 

Born and raised in Melbourne I have always had a passion for dance, but made a choice to get a degree in IT which meant leaving my dancing behind.

I stumbled into the world of pole dancing as a result of a flyer in my letterbox for a free trial class at Pole Princess. I left that class with my first pair of pole shoes (5 ¾ inches – so low!!) and haven’t stopped since!

I started competing 12 months ago and in that time I have the following titles:

Victorian Pole Championships – Amateur 2nd Runner Up – 2014

Miss Pole Dance Australia – VIC Heats – 2nd Runner Up – 2015

Miss Pole Dance Australia – Champions Choice – 2015

Pole Candy – Pro Runner Up – 2015

Natty Stephens Rarr designs Pole dancer

How long have you been doing pole dancing?

4 ½ years

The moment you realised you love pole dancing?

I realised I was addicted when attending classes wasn’t enough and I so I purchased my first x-pole, put it up in my garage and actually used it religiously! If I wasn’t at the studio in class I was at home on my pole.

Describe your style.

My style varies and adapts to the scene. On one hand I love being very playful and dynamic, I want to captivate my audience when I perform; and on the other hand, I love taking the time to appreciate losing myself in a bare foot routine and dancing for myself.

[youtube_sc url=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzn2ZpLWEd0″]

Favourite move?

Depends on the day! I am always trying something new that I come across and want to work out or change. I always love split tricks, cup grips & elbow grips.

Tools of the trade, what can’t you live without when pole dancing?

Shaving cream, tite grip, dew point, YouTube & my favourite training buddies!

Any hobbies or passions outside of pole dancing?

When I’m not pole dancing, I’m watching pole videos and planning my next training session. I also love bouldering, it’s like rock climbing but not as high and with no ropes!

Describe how it feels to be performing and competing amongst some of the best pole dancers in the world?

It is surreal. I never imagined getting to this level. I pole dance for the love of it and to be able to share the stage with so many people who inspire me is just incredible.

Can’t live without?
