Sarah Jade’s Pole Dancing Career
Born on December 12, 1987, Sarah Jade is 30 years old. She was raised in Tampa, Florida.
Sarah Jade’s interest in pole dancing started when she was 18 years old. She saw a video on YouTube by Alethea Austin (a pole dancer and showgirl from Tennessee) and taught herself how to dance.
Jade became inspired by Austin and began practicing. She installed a pole in her home and would spend hours perfecting the skills and techniques required to master the dance form.
In 2011, Jade went to the University of Florida and graduated Cum Laude in Sociology. Afterward, she pursued her dreams of perfecting pole dancing and attended numerous workshops. She even trained under big names like Zoraya Judd, who is a famous pole dancer and an aerial pole performer.
Jade has performed at many events, like the Florida Pole & Aerial Arts Showcase, Pole Show L.A., Miss Pole Dance America, Ink-N-Iron Showcase of the Stars, and more.
The pro dancer performed with her idol Austin at the Ink-N-Iron Showcase of the Stars, along with acclaimed aerialists like Jamilla Deville. She gained a huge fan following of her own in the process.
It was Austin who encouraged Jade to fill out the forms for competitions, including the U.S. Pole Dance Federation (USPDF) back in 2010. She also invited Jade to teach her class at the Sexy Flexy Camp and has always been there for her.

Opening Buttercup Pole Dance
In 2011, Jade opened the doors to her pole dance studio in Tampa she named Buttercup Pole Dance. It offers beginners the chance to understand the dance with proper techniques, taught by numerous instructors on board.
In an interview, Jade explained where the name for her dance studio came from. She said that her “great-grandmother, grandmother, and my mom owned an antique store” called Buttercup Cottage.
The family business was up and running until Jade was 17. So, when she opened her studio, she decided to pay homage to the three generations of female business owners before her.
Jade is also one of the instructors at her studio and loves to teach her own style of the dance to all who are passionate about the aerial dance form. She says that not only will the classes make you fit, but you’ll also have a ton of fun dancing!
