Annemarie Davies

Annemarie is the founder of United Pole Artists. AM has been pole dancing since January 2002, only a small time before it was “all the rage”. Beginning gymnastics at age five, she then went on to become a competition cheerleader for 11 years. It was there where she learned to dance, become flexible and do daredevil type stunts and flips on a regular basis. Once Annemarie discovered the pole, her pole dancing talents came very naturally. She went on to win the Entertainer of the year for Spearmint Rhino Gentleman’s Club in 2006, headlining in Spearmint Rhino clubs across the country, doing themed shows with costumes and props. After working for 5 1/2 years in the strip clubs, Annemarie transitioned into dancing at Jumbo's Clown Room in Hollywood, Ca. JCR is a popular bikini bar that has many different types of entertainers, burlesque, comedic, show tuners and pole acrobats. In 2008, with an immense amount of help and support from the owners of X-Polesitions, she produced the biggest and best pole dance contest in LA to date, Pole Star Invitational. Her company, United Pole Artists is a sponsor to the California Pole Dance Championship and Miss Georgia Pole Dance Competition. For more information on UPA, visit unitedpoleartists.com

"I love the freedom pole dancing gives me. It is a beautiful, refreshing way in which to express yourself, not to mention a serious work out. Every woman should give it a try. Your spirit will thank you for it!"

Lori Hirai

After a long stint of boxing and self-defense classes, Lori needed a change in her exercise regime to include creativity. About 3 years ago she picked up pole dancing which led her to Evolve. Lori quickly developed her advanced skills under the direction of Evolve instructors and through workshops with internationally-renowned performers like Felix Cane. Her understanding of individual development, patience, and respect make Lori an ideal leader in the class environment. In her spare time, Lori enjoys a wide variety of physical activities including hula hooping and running, which complement her healthy living lifestyle and passion for fine cuisine.
