BENJAMIN CAMERON HUNT
Benjamin loves pole events. He has been attending them since 2011 and has had a hand in almost every aspect of them throughout the years. But he found his calling as an emcee. He loves the confusion on some faces when they can’t figure out how this bearded guy knows the difference between a Machine Gun and Chopsticks (the pole moves) or why he’s cheering the loudest every time he sees an Elbow Grip Aysha. Even after a full weekend of being an emcee at pole events, he can still talk your ear off… if you let him. Don’t be afraid to ask him anything, especially about pole.
Caitlin is thrilled to be able to combine her love of public speaking with her love of aerial arts as this year’s co-emcee. She has long enjoyed applying her expertise, sense of humor, and confident stage presence to presentations but has only recently discovered a passion for pole. Caitlin took her first pole dance class in 2010, her first lyra class in 2016, and began performing in Ottawa-based pole showcases two years ago. She has taken a few breaks from the sport but always returns for the fun, fitness, and friendship she finds at her local studios.
