Cleo the Hurricane

Cleo the Hurricane is the international rock star of pole dancing and the current Australian Pole Dance Champion.

Born on the Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago, now hailing from Melbourne-via-Sydney, Cleo’s early years were spent doing gymnastics and classical ballet training. In high school she discovered rock music, picked up a pair of drumsticks, joined a band and never looked back.

Her formative years were spent gigging around Melbourne, fronting her band ‘Raw Sexes War’. Leaving ballet behind, Cleo began practicing Capoeira (a Brazilian Martial Art) which led to her discovery of the ‘Pole Princess’ studio in Melbourne and subsequent obsession with pole dancing.

Hitting the pole for the first time at 27, this feisty lady was teaching classes within two months, developing her style quickly and truly owning her technique. She’s a natural, and the rest is history…

Cleo also took out the 2012 Miss Pole Dance Australia, previously having missed out on the title by just ½ a point in 2011 (2nd only to World Champion Felix Cane). Her scorching 2011 routine was set to Scorpion’s hit ‘Rock You Like a Hurricane’ which earned her the nick name ‘Hurricane’.

Cleo has built an impressive, international career out of her pole-dancing obsession. She’s produced, written and starred in her own fitness DVD ‘Rockin’ Legs N Abs’ and taught at Sydney’s ‘Bobbi’s Pole Studio’ (known as the pole capital of the world). Having performed in Australia, Europe, Singapore, Hong Kong, the USA and Canada, Cleo also lived in Germany for a short time, performing as a solo artist at Berlin’s prestigious Friedrichstadt Palast Show Palace.

Cleo the Hurricane is taking over the world one routine at a time, and it’s easy to see why. Her strength, flexibility and power are an inspiration to men and women the world over. Her wild performances, leather and stud-clad costumes and rockin’ soundtracks are what set Cleo apart. Her ‘Rock N Pole’ and ‘Hurricane’ styles, plus sexy sky-high stilettos (always) make Cleo a jaw-dropping performer and a formidable opponent in competition.

Pole has taken over Cleo’s life, and she has taken the world by storm with her unforgettable talent and charisma, on stage and off.

“POLE DANCE is my life! I hope that this beautiful and strong kind of sport will be in Olympic games. I try to advance pole dance forward in Russia. I wish good luck to all pole dancers!”
Natasha Wang

I came into pole dancing purely by accident.

In 2004, a girlfriend who’d seen pole dancing on Oprah dragged me to an intro class at S Factor. I’d never been comfortable with exhibiting overt sexiness, so it wasn’t exactly love at first fireman spin, but it was a titillating curiosity; a little secret I could hide under my work clothes and my public-facing good girl persona.

I don’t have a gymnastics or dance background, so pole dancing was also an opportunity to be that dancer I’d always fantasize being — without any of the judgment or pressure to be perfect.

I joined Leigh Ann Reilly’s Be Spun gym in 2008 and saw what was possible with the human body. Women and men contorted into unimaginable shapes. Instructors and students seemingly levitated. These human beings were achieving the impossible – and I knew I wanted just a little bit of their superpowers. I began training every day, several hours a day.

What started off as something I did with friends for fun once a week, turned into a full-fledged love affair. I began competing in 2009 with little fanfare. Then I joined the cast of Kelly Yvonne’s Girl Next Door show and discovered the art of pole, in which emotion, storytelling, physical prowess and vulnerability came together on stage to create something magical: pole art.

Under Kelly’s mentorship and coaching, I started winning my first titles — first East Meets West/Tri-Pole Challenge’s “Miss Pole-AM 2010,” then the 2010 California Pole Dance Championship followed by the USPDF West Coast Championships that same year. In April 29, 2011, I cinched the USPDF National Championships title, and in April 2012, I won 1st Runner-Up at Pole Art in Stockholm, Sweden.

Since then, I’ve put my nine-year career as a publicist on hold to embark on a strange, surreal journey that has taken me around the world. I invite you to join me on the road as this self-professed ‘regular gal’ starts a new chapter of her life.
