In the ever-changing world of pole and aerial arts, Suwasit is considered the person that professionals go to for proven results. Since 1997, Suwasit has successfully maintained a performance and competition career as well as an in-demand coaching and choreography business.
This endearing artist performs and presents in a class entirely of his own, with a style that is both sensual and dynamic. This pole legend is indeed a part of Sin City’s remarkable landscape and history, a true Las Vegas icon as the Strip’s first male pole dancer, as well as the reader’s choice ‘Vegas Sexiest Butt 2012’ for QVegas Magazine.
His extensive dance background with Napoleon and Tabitha D’umo (So You Think You Can Dance, Jennifer Lopez ‘Planet Hollywood’), Missy Cochran (Michael Jackson ‘Live’), Paul Franklin (EFX at the MGM), and Stephan Miermont (‘O’ Cirque du Soleil), gives Suwasit an insight into being a cutting-edge choreographer.
As an artist, he has performed in the multi-million dollar production ‘SPLASH’ (Riviera Hotel and Casino) and was the featured artist in ‘AZURE’ (Silverton Hotel and Casino). Suwasit’s awards range from PARAGON International Pole Dance champion, seven-time U.S. medalist, and winner of Pole Video of the Year.
Suwasit has been and is currently a specially contracted expert for International Pole Convention, Pole Expo, and Aerial Expo. His work has been featured in shows including Cirque du Soleil’s MJ ONE, The Immortal World Tour, Zumanity, LIGHT Night Club, Franco Dragone’s Taboo (Macau), Fantasy Show, Pin Up Show, Zombie Burlesque, X Burlesque Show, X Rocks Show, Surrender Night Club, XS Night Club, The PussyCat Dolls Show (Las Vegas), and Jubilee (Bally’s).
In addition to providing education to other performers, athletes, and artists, Suwasit broadens his craft with private specialty continuing education through one-to-one sessions with Jenyne Butterfly (Cirque du Soleil's MJ ONE, 1st US Pole Dance Champion), Christopher Harrison (Antigravity Yoga), and Sarah Romanowsky (Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Awards, Radio City Music Hall’s Spring Spectacular, Chevy Super Bowl Ad featuring the Cast of GLEE).
Every year, Suwasit’s sold-out workshops, private instructions, and studio classes total in excess of 1,000 hours of hands-on training culminating to approximately 10,000+ hours to date.
Whatever the content or subject, it has been my experience that a “Cause and Effect” approach to teaching is the most effective method. Because my method is application, each exercise I prescribe (whether in individual instruction or group clinics) is done in such a manner that the exact desired outcome is achieved directly as a result. It is quicker and more accurate. Effective and efficient!
Although a picture can tell a thousand stories, the experience of one story is always better. When “descriptions” and “observations” become more important than or a substitute for the “ABILITY to DO,” YOUR learning will become the casualty!
I recognize that there are many avenues to artistic perception and creativity and each student learns in a very individual way. Obviously, to understand the basic principles underlying any endeavor is important, but just telling you “what to do” does nothing to “help you do.” You have to know “how to do.” That can only be realized because of experience – your experience.
Ability involves the coordination of many actions and thoughts. It requires not only the capacity to multi-task, but most importantly the proficiency to multi-focus. That is why each exercise will act first as a mechanical assist and, in doing so, become a psychological assist.
Additionally, I prefer to communicate using language that has a definite functional and mechanical relationship specific to you and the individual needs of your demands. Purposely guiding your descriptions to only follow your experiences – not before – ensures your deepest and fullest understanding of the process of learning.
