  • I first met Suwasit over coffee when I first arrived here in Las Vegas to inquire about aerial training and I was surprised how quickly Suwasit was ready to begin.  His instruction was thorough, fun, and he made me feel very comfortable and safe while working in new conditions.  An additional factor of working with Suwasit was his care, he cared about my future success and my artistry and an extension of his own passion for his craft.  Always original, always authentic, Suwasit was inspiring to watch, not only as a performer...but an individual.  Thank you Suwasit for helping me find success here in Vegas, I truly could not have made these steps without your initial goodwill.

  • Suwasit, when I first came to you I was so frustrated because there were so many movements and tricks on the pole that I could NOT do but with your passion and dedication you taught each one of them to me. Now I can honestly say that I have been taught by one of the best coaches ever. Thank you SO MUCH for everything you have taught me about pole dancing. I really appreciate your vast knowledge and I am so grateful to say that you are a part of my success as a Pole Dancer. I'm so glad to be one of your students. You have everything a professor posses: professionalism, guidance, expertise and passion for what you do. Please never stop doing what you love. Thank you so much for all your kindness.”
