Q: The opening show of Miss Pole Dance Australia is to Pole Dancing what the Nutcracker is to Christmas. How are the themes decided, and which is your favourite one?
I'm lucky enough to be in charge of the opening numbers. I get to decide the themes, the costumes, and the cast (which always features the reigning champion). My personal favourite was Miss Pole 2016 Adam and Eve theme featuring Miss Filly. That show had everything, a dream cast, a live snake, and Blue Phoenix swoon haha

Q: Who inspires you in the pole world who is not pole-famous?
Shanny O'Leary (instagram is @Shannyo15), a mum of 3 beautiful children and as if raising 3 kids isn't challenging enough her gorgeous daughter Marley has a rare genetic disorder and requires special care but wait there's more . Shanny is also a dance instructor, a cake decorator, and teaches pole at Pole Palace. SUPER WOMAN !!! Shanny has the best energy and attitude and was one of the Barbies in the opening of Miss Pole this year, she helped me with choreography and stress control haha although I failed miserably.

Q: Pole Theatre… Your recent routine based on true events with Creatures of XIX Gecko Girl Coco about how crazy some people have been - but whats the craziest thing you have done in the club and what’s your favourite stage song?
Jelly wrestling with Daisy was pretty crazy haha I knew she was stronger than me so I had to fight dirty and immediately pulled down her pants haha hmmm so many great songs I love dancing to this question is too hard im gunna say Porn Star Dancing by My Darkest Days 

Q: If you could marry one pole celebrity who would it be? And who would be the maid of honour?
Blue Phoenix of course and we will have a double wedding with Miss Filly and Adam Lin I mean every time I turn around Chris is making out with Filly and I'm always humping Adam's leg so we may as well share haha Cleo The Hurricane is maid of honour for sure 

Q: What, for you, has been the most prominent event in the last ten years of Pole Dance?
Hmm I can't think of one specific event but I love how inclusive and supportive the pole community has become . I began teaching 13yrs ago and at the start it was very competitive between studios and dancers and the objective seemed to be to protect pole moves ,and now here we are, all sharing our tips and tricks on the internet, training together,  and teaching at numerous studios . I love this change it has given us all a chance to grow and learn it's awesome

Q: I’ve attended some and your Pole Grooves classes and they are up there with the most fun classes of all time. I think because you are very open, with hilarious stories of the past weeks’ shenanigans, classmates seem at ease and open with each other, and laughs are shared. Do you ever feel run-down? If so, on those days when students are expecting their usual hilarious Chilli to cheer them up after a long day at work, how do you deal with this?
I'm super honest with my students . I tell them everything and they do the same. Nothing is off limits and sometimes it feels more like a therapy session than a dance class haha but I swear we get work done sometimes haha. 

Q: How did you begin Pole Dancing?
I began as a student with a couple of girlfriends and we thought we were so naughty and cool haha and can you believe we all now teach pole!

Q: Outside the pole world, what female inspires you and why?
When I was growing up it was Madonna .Singer , dancer , musician, actress Desperately Seeking Susan , Who's That Girl they are must see movies. I never knew what she was going to do next - she set fashion trends, dance trends, hair trends and she was outspoken, courageous, and controversial . Now that I'm older I'm more inspired by the people around me. Andrea Ryff inspires me oops she's a poler sorry!

Q: If you could have sex with any celeb, who would it be? AND…. What position!?
What you expect me to choose just one? That's an outrage. Johnny Depp Justin Bieber and Channing Tatum all at once please and I'd love to be a starfish 

 

Q: You can make one law that everyone in the world must abide by… what is it?
That all music and videos be allowed on facebook 

Q: Which Tee from the Creatures Of XIX Teevocative range is your fave? 
Come as you are (also fave nirvana song!). You can check it out here.

Q: If you could be highly skilled in any art, what would it be (not including dance!)?
Guitar 

Q: Outside from Pole, what are you happy to have achieved?
There is an outside from pole ??? I was a school prefect haha 

Q: Who is your favourite opinionated Poler?
Shimmy Shimmy Shimmy fearless, strong, sexy, smart, funny ,generous, loyal, amazing . Dancer , dance teacher , Studio owner co owner [with the gorgeous Maddie Sparkle of course]  , international competition organiser  I couldn't love her anymore  

Chilli is touring the UK next year - contact her at  chilli.rox@hotmail.com to book workshops, and take it from me, her workshops are ridiculously fun, insanely hot and you'll without a doubt leave feeling high on life.
