Orene Askew, aka DJ O Show, brings energy and expertise to every event she hosts and DJ’s. She brings professionalism and passion and remains true to her love for hip hop and R&B, incorporating beats to ensure you never want to leave the dance floor! DJ O Show has experience teaching with an inspired approach. She is an inspirational speaker, having traveled across the country to bring ambition and drive to all generations, and is an elected member of the Squamish Nation Chief & Council. Coming from a diverse background, O Show is driven by her passion. She is Afro-Canadian and First Nations and a proud member of the Squamish Nation. Feeling as though she stood out in a unique way, she has embraced both her cultural backgrounds and incorporates the teachings she has learned into everything she does.
A true showpony at heart, Lynx Chase has always been passionate about movement and performance arts. Over the years, they have trained in a variety of disciplines ranging from Aerial Hoop, Silks, Contortion, Partner Acrobatics, Bellydance & Capoeira; however it wasn’t until they dove deep into Pole Dancing in 2012 that they found their true vocation. Lynx has been professionally teaching in Vancouver since 2015 and has also showcased their gravity defying acts at various events and festivals across the province such as Retro Strip Show, Queer Arts Festival, Transform Cabaret, Vancouver Mural Festival, Bass Coast and Shambhala. It is their hope to continue to share their craft with the world by demonstrating the strength, sensuality, artistry and grace that goes hand in hand with the art of pole, striptease and erotic dance.
To fully immerse in the multitudes of Indigenous rising star Nimkish is to honour the past, look ahead to the future, and bask in the resplendent present all at once. The Vancouver-based marvel-in-the-making is fearless in her lyricism, Nimkish always brings a bright-eyed aim to flourish in all she has experienced.
