Previously based in Brisbane and Melbourne as a pole instructor and personal training fitness professional, in 2013 Blue Phoenix relocated to Sydney, and continues to instruct and perform locally, nationally and internationally. With a background in strength training and fitness model competition, Blue Phoenix took to the pole in early 2012 and has never looked back, having long admired the combination of strength, gymnastics, dance, flexibility and acrobatic aspects of the sport/art. His style is erotic, focusing on quality flow and leg work. Blue Phoenix is the first ever male teacher at BPS. His super strong and sexy style, together with his nurturing personality and positive energy, make him an excellent and much-loved teacher.
Fun facts: was NOT flexible when he began pole, and had no background in dance! Background was in Marine Biology.
Drinks coffee from bowls over mugs, decorates his own heels, runs his own freelance business, and is terrified of clowns.
