Justine McLucas


Justine started dancing at the age of 3, training in ballet, jazz, contemporary and singing throughout her childhood. With Honours in her RAD Advanced Ballet training, and a quarter finalist in the prestigious Prix de Lausanne competition at the age of 15, she was soon accepted to the Hamburg Ballet School where she completed her professional ballet training and performed with the school and company on stages around Germany. After an injury left her unable to dance en pointe, Justine went home to Australia and began working in finance. Financial services however led her to trading and collateral management in leading investment banks in London in a successful career spanning almost a decade.
But her true love has always been dance, and fate would have it that a gym in London 2007, tempted Justine to try Pole Dancing - and she was captivated by the strength, beautiful lines, and uniqueness of the art, motivating her to train and start performing again, this time in the world of cabaret and acrobatic pole dancing, where she has already established herself firmly amongst the elite polers of Britain, building a solid reputation as a respected performer, choreographer and instructor. She is a judge and guest performer at the UK's biggest Amateur Pole Dance Competition, UKAPP, represents X-Pole as one of their feature models.
