Catherine Rose: Owner/Operator of Slinky Productions
Catherine started her career as an exotic dancer at age 18, part-time, while still a student. When she retired at 31, friends kept inviting her to teach them “a few sexy moves.” Catherine obliged by offering small workshops in sensual dance exclusively to her closest friends and communities in 2000. This is how Ms. Rose came to develop her love of erotic movement and working with women into a full time business that now includes ongoing classes, private lessons, bachelorette parties, and an award winning tour of strip clubs
Known for her professional (yet personal) approach, Catherine Rose will put you at ease with her supportive, respectful style of teaching, helping you to reconnect with your sexy feminine essence. Having actually worked in the field for years before becoming teacher, Catherine is uniquely qualified to demystify exotic dance concepts and techniques, as well as the practice of the profession. After being a dancer, she explored a wide range of courses in sexuality as a path for personal and spiritual growth, which she also brings to this work.
"Exotic Dance is an empowering form of self-expression and physical fitness to be enjoyed by all women, regardless of age or body type. My intention is to create a safe, non-judgmental and playful environment where women of all ages and body types can step into feeling more sexy and alive in their bodies and in their lives." --- Catherine Rose, Leading expert in the field of exotic dance for fitness, fun and empowerment
