DAISY MOORE // @daisypolesquirrel
Hello, my name is Daisy Moore, also known as Pole Squirrel on Instagram. I have been poling for 5 years and before that I was a ballerina with the Royal Academy of Dance for 20 years. My pole style is linked to my ballet background and I tend to prefer the prettier or more flexible moves. This year (2018) I won the professional category at the Yorkshire pole championships as well as best tricks and best overall performance. I’m competing later this year at Miss Pole Dance the professionals and at Solent Pole competition. I own a small pole school called Pole Squirrels based in the midlands in the U.K. I teach workshops and perform every now and then all with a full time managers job in the day.
