Chris, aka Blue Phoenix, began pole dancing in 2012 after purchasing an online voucher for a casual class! Loving the combination of strength, flexibility, dance, gymnastics and art, he was immediately hooked, and never looked back!
Now based in Sydney, Chris teaches and performs pole and aerials locally, nationally and internationally as Blue Phoenix. His style combines elements of strength, flexibility and fluidity - embracing the sexy, breaking the barriers, and helping and encouraging others to find and develop their own unique groove and movement. Flow, engagement, and the highest heels are a few of his favourite things!
Chris's biggest moments so far include being crowned the 2014 Mr Pole World, and 2016 Pole Theatre Sydney Pro Classique Champion.
WHAT’S SOMETHING WE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I am a Dr in Marine Biology, and personal trainer (before I became a pole dancer)! I also have an irrational mortal fear of clowns.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE CLASS AT SYDNEY POLE?
My favourite class is Pole Tease - all things sexy, slinky and cheeky.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SONG TO JAM OUT TO?
My favourite jams are those with heavy beats, bass and build-ups! Heavy metal and rock give me the biggest buzz when dancing and choreographing!
WHO/WHAT IS YOUR SPIRIT ANIMAL
My spirit animal is the Phoenix (of course). It represents rebirth, learning, and becoming a better version of yourself no matter what happens in your life. Everything is a learning experience.
