Steve Gale -Chinese Pole Advisory Committee: With a background in art and gymnastics, Steve began his career in entertainment at the age of 20. His extensive experience as an acrobatic performer has taken him through long running shows at Disneyland, Six Flags, Harrah's Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas. He has also performed for many corporate clients all over the world including the NBA , NHL, and NFL, Acura, Wells Fargo and the North American International Auto Show to name a few. Recent projects for Steve include NBC’s TV show ‘The Cape’, the 2008 NBC’s ‘Celebrity Circus’ and the Gymnastics Superstars tour in 2008. Currently Steve is working independently with many companies as a Creative Consultant, Technical Director, Stunt Coordinator, and a performer on projects that take him all over the world in the private corporate. He began moving into the technical side of the industry when he served as Technical Director and performer in a show for Samsung at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia. Steve then brought one of his visions to life with “Cirque De La Mer” at SeaWorld San Diego. Cirque De La Mer is a water-based acrobatic show he co-created, directed and worked as the project manager on. In this show he brought the ‘Zorb’ from New Zealand for its first time use in an entertainment based environment. Currently the show is running in its 11th year. Four-Cubed is another creation Steve has developed; it combines his love of Chinese Poles with his relentless creativity and imagination for something unique to inspire an audience. The Four-Cubed apparatus is a creative way to bring the art form of Chinese poles to an audience without any external rigging. Steve’s background on the pole started in 1994; his love for the art form is unique as there are only a handful of men who pursue the sport.
