Australian Pole Powerhouse Carlie Hunter.

From consecutive Australian Pole Champion and 2012 International Pole Championship (IPC) Ultimate Doubles Champion (together with Travis Scott), X-Pole Australia, Dry Hands and Bad Kitty Ambassador, IPDFA 2012 Choreographer of the Year Award, as well as her exceedingly popular and convincing alter egos as the Granny and Mexican Carlos, Carlie has been making some serious waves.

It may seem, from an international perspective, that Carlie stormed out of nowhere into the global pole arena, breaking down barriers and smashing stereotypes with a pocketful of surprises and intimidating elbow grip moves. However, this is actually not the case. Carlie, a renowned freestyle dancer, first discovered pole back in 2005, and won her first title, Miss Pole Dance South Australia, in 2007.

Learn more about her rise to international award-winning pole superstardom in Issue 2 of Volare Pole and Aerial Arts Magazine.
