I AM

KHEANNA WALKER

I AM AN INTERNATIONAL

 POLE PERFORMER AND INSTRUCTOR.

My fitness journey began in Montreal, Canada. I was involved in sports at a young age - my parents were always passionate about keeping our family active. They were also adamant about making me feel like I could achieve anything if I set my mind to it, despite being one of the only people of colour in the spaces I occupied. I have carried that mentality with me as my training evolved. 

 

Being often the only Afro-Asian woman meant that I had to work hard to make sure that if I stood out, it was for the right reasons. 

 

In my teens, I joined competitive synchronized swimming and cheerleading teams. These two sports enabled me to establish strong foundations in dance, flexibility, flow, choreography and strength. When I attended my first pole class, I fell in love right away. I remember it being super hard, but there was something about it that made me want to get really good at it.

 

I was extremely inspired by my first instructors who moved with such strength and grace, and I remember wanting to be able to look like that when I danced. I poledanced recreationally in Montreal for about 2 years and then I moved to Australia and became exposed to a whole new world of pole dancing. The scene there is competitive yet vibrant, and I soon discovered that pole dancing could be both a passion and a profession. I started competing in Australia, which was a completely nerve-wrecking yet incredibly rewarding experience. I love being able to work towards a goal and finally leave everything on stage. 

At the beginning of 2020, I followed my heart to Glasgow, Scotland. I started working for Pole Junkie where I started off as the Social Media Manager and then was promoted to the role of Creative Lead. Since then, I have also performed on various stages including:

 

💜 The Blackstage Showcase in London

💜 Shades: Black & Queer Cabaret in Stirling & Edinburgh

💜 Pole Physique’s Halloween Social in Glasgow

💜 Studio Phenix’ Christmas Showcase in Montreal

💜 Womansplaining x Peach Club Show in Montreal

💜 The Pussy Parlour Show in Manchester

💜 Dreaming Eli Launch at London Fashion Week

 

Lastly, I have been featured in multiple film projects and have worked with numerous brands including campaigns for Pole Junkie, Tatiana Active and X-POLE.

 

I have taught workshops in Australia, the UK and Canada. This March, I will be expanding my expertise in Asia where I’ll be teaching at Sarah Scott’s Movement Mastery Pole Retreat in Phuket Thailand.

 

I strongly believe that keeping our bodies nourished through movement is essential for our mental, spiritual and physical health. I am here to share my years of experience training, competing and instructing in different environments to meet you wherever you are in your fitness journey. I want you to feel confident and powerful in the way you train, and I want you to bring that same confidence and power into the way you move through life everyday. Train, Stretch, Dance and Flow with color, confidence and power.
