The Art of Sensual Dance

Confidence that comes from within


About My Practice

A Life of Balance

For the past twenty years I have worked as an exotic dancer and pole dancer under the stage name Suzie Q. My experiences in both industries were overwhelmingly positive, so much so that I wrote a book about it! You can purchase a copy of The Stripper Next Door by clicking here. I am also a yoga and meditation teacher having trained in India, Indonesia, the USA and Australia in Purna, Yin and Rocket Yoga. I now teach The Art of Sensual Dance with Shakti Academy at Retreats around the world and am also a resident Aerialist on board the Majestic Princes, part of Princess Cruises.
