Gem Brulee is a Burlesque performer with seven years of entertaining the Tri-Cities under her garters. The art-form of burlesque freed her to love herself. Now Gem is spreading that love to you, babes.

Mindy Woodall

Mindy Woodall

Mindy began her aerial journey in 2014. She took an aerial silks class after seeing a flyer on the ETSU campus. As a theatre student, she had the opportunity to take 2 semesters of aerial dance at ETSU and fell in love with aerial arts. She graduated with a BA in theatre and a BS in chemistry in 2017. She rejoined the NOCA family in 2019 after an extended break to focus on her daughter that was born in 2016. She loves the relationships she’s created through the studio and the escape it provides from her day job. She is employed at Nuclear Fuel Services where she is also a part of their emergency response team.

Paige Watson

Paige began her pole journey in 2013 when she was driven by a love of dance and movement and decided to take a pole dance class on a whim. After a single private lesson at Sheer Inspiration Pole Fitness in Knoxville, she was hooked. Completely enraptured by the grace, athleticism, and beauty of the sport, Paige began taking classes regularly and competed in her first pole competition less than a year after she began dancing. Her strength and passion for dance blossom whenever she’s on stage, and she looks forward to planning more performances in the future. She is thoroughly excited to share her passion for pole with others, hoping they will discover the self-love journey and body positivity that accompany the sport.
