In 2011, Carlie burst onto the international pole scene, breaking all pole dancing stereotypes with her Granny Clementine routine. She then followed it up in 2012, unleashing her newest alter ego “Carlos”, who has since established his very own fan club. Carlie has placed herself on the world pole map not only as a performer but as a choreographer, winning the 2012 International Pole Fitness Association “Choreographer of the Year” award, as well as snapping up the 2014 “PWN International Pole Artist of the Year” award.
Carlie is not only known for her pole comedy skills but her ability to dance Freestyle. She has found inspiration by drawing from sensual, lyrical and contemporary styles and is dedicated to help people find comfort in their own styles through free movement. She is now being called the Pole Chameleon, due to her unique ability to pull off and perform almost any style of pole dance thrown at her. Her successes lie not only with her own career but through the teachings of her students, with a large number of her students and instructors winning State and National titles with her guidance, training and choreography. She is an extremely knowledgeable instructor and a proud ambassador for X-POLE Australia, Bad Kitty and Dry Hands Australia.
The winner of Pole Idol 2013 was Marion Crampe from France and the winner of the Pole Fan competition was Valentina D’Amico from Italy.
