Squeak's Workshop Information
A true O.G. poler, Squeak started pole dancing in the adult industry in the year 2000 and is still working the stripclub scene to this very day In 2004 she began including home pole and studio pole work into her training...and became an instructor a few short years later. For the past 14 years she has walked the line between the studio and stripper pole world, finding harmony and balance between the two. She credits her style of dynamic, death-defying drops and tumbles mixed with raw sensuality to growing up in the stripclub scene and applies that edginess to her studio classes and workshops...urging students not to polish the rough edges too much and to embrace uniqueness.

She been a guest judge and feature performer for the Northeast Queen of the Pole competition for several years as well as Melee on the Bayou and other national comps. She has trained and choreographed dozens of 1st place winning entertainers and competitors in various pole and aerial competitions and beauty pageants. Squeak is also the host and organizer for Mr Pole Dance America, along with her partner in crime, Brian Wolf.

Aerial Hoop: Drops & Rolls
Aerial hoop doesn’t always have to be about beautiful, bendy movement. Explore the dynamic, powerful side of this versatile apparatus. Make gravity and centripetal force your bitch in this fun and explosive class.
We will start from the ground up….learning simple pops, drops and rolls that are accessible to almost any level of hoop enthusiast. From there we move onward to more complex and even somewhat scary rolls and drops. (With a heavy spot, of course!)
Students must be able to mount the hoop comfortably. It is recommended (but not required) that students be able to get into a gazelle or hold a split under the bottom bar as well as mount the top bar.
