Steven Retchless was a pole dancer act from Season 6 of America's Got Talent. He was eliminated in the Semifinals.

BackgroundEdit

Steven broke into the aerial art scene in 2010 when he won the title as the first ever American Pole Fitness Champion, but his background and achievements reach far beyond the aerial arts. At an early age he studied dance through local Las Vegas studios, dance companies, prestigious schools, the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts and California Institute of the Arts. His education only fuelled his desire to find a yet more unique kind of expression, that encompassed all aspects of his extensive dance training.

Aside from touring, Steven is one of the top instructors at the highly respected studio, Body and Pole in New York City, which currently houses arguably the best pole, stretch, dance and aerial art instructors on the planet. As a talented performer Steven has a gift for owning the stage and projecting unforgettable expression, making him a distinct figure in the Pole Community. [www.sretchless.com/#!bio/c240r 1]
