Meet DARK ANGEL
Regina Sykes/Dark Angel
"I have been pole dancing since 2009. After spending years in the gym and teaching aerobics, I decided I wanted to try something new, adventurous and fun as well as something that would allow me to explore my sexy side. I found exactly what I was looking for and more. I found a community of humans that I have grow to love and they are my extended family. I was captivated by the sultry sexing style of dance lead by Michelle Mynx, but stayed for the love and human interactions. As I learned to pole I soon learned that she could incorporate being both strong and sexy through pole dancing all the while gaining better body awareness and self confidence beyond anything my dreams. In recent past I have experienced a tremendous loss of my daughter Monica, she went missing and was later found, she had me murdered by a guy she had only been dating a few months. The pole community rallied around my family and I and supported us beyond what anyone could image. Since this tragic loss I've used pole dancing as my outlet and way to express myself in my grief, when I'm unable to verbalize things I'm able to just go and dance at Mynx Academy. Pole dancing for me has been my saving grace in periods of complete depression i've been able to dance, teach and love on so many students that remind me of my precious Moni.
I've had the pleasure of performing in the Michelle Mynx Pole Dance Extravaganza since 2009. I've also had the opportunity to perform in Jeezy’s Juke Joint a Black Burlesque Review, Pole Kisses, Pole Through, Show Me Burlesque Festival, Speak To Me, Vertical Desires, Wildside a Bad ass pole show in Chicago. I've also competed and placed in the North American Pole Dance Competition, Pole Sport Organization(PSO, Gateway Pole Dance Competition and Aerialympics."
