BIOGRAPHY

Bendy Kate is a contemporary and original performer specialising in pole, aerial, hand balancing and acrobatics. She makes sure every single performance is unique, different from the last and memorable leaving a lasting impression on the audience. Asides from headlining at incredible events around the world she has won titles such as; Pole Art France Champion 2017, World Pole Dance Champion 2014, IPSF World Pole Sports Runner Up 2013 and UK Professional Pole Championships 2011, 2012 and 2013.

She is a passionate teacher; she uses her knowledge of the human body, her gymnastics background and experience to travel the world teaching masterclasses. Combining her experience and her BSc Sports Therapy and Rehabilitation degree (first class) she also creates learning resources to help athletes further their understanding on flexibility and other gymnastic disciplines. Her first book ‘Advanced Stretching Technique’, released in 2016 was a huge success, followed by her second ‘A Little Book of Handstands’ released in 2017. Bendy is currently working on a third book and a Advanced Stretching Technique Instructor training course!

Bendy created her own holistic brand, ‘The Bendy Brand’ (of course!). The Bendy Brand sells luxury training wear, books, stretching equipment and livestream stretching classes with Bendy herself.
