Annemarie Davies Dancer. CEO & Founder at United Pole Artists. Director of documentary Fistful of Steel.
A pole dancer and teacher for over almost 17 years, Annemarie Davies has been at the forefront of establishing the pole community. AM started dancing in Los Angeles strip clubs in 2002 and, four years later, won the title of Spearmint Rhino’s Entertainer of the year. In 2008, she organized Pole Star Invitational, the first pole dancing competition outside of strip clubs in the US. She founded United Pole Artists in 2009 with the goal of bringing dancers together to share their work and providing a platform for those outside the community to watch competitions and learn about pole. Her thorough knowledge of pole and shared experience in the pole industry has motivated her to work on Fistful of Steel: A Pole Dance Film. FFoS is a documentary focused on the history of pole dance. She also currently dances at Jumbo’s Clown Room in Hollywood, California.
