Welcome To The First Annual " Pole Dance Competition" in Los Angeles California

Pole dancing has gained popularity as a form of exercise, with increased awareness of the benefits to general strength and fitness. This form of exercise increases core and general body strength by using the body itself as resistance, while toning the body as a whole. A growing number of women are incorporating pole dancing into their fitness programs. In Australia, the UK, Europe and USA, dance studios are beginning to offer classes in such training. Although the most common pole dance competitions are still amateur nights at strip clubs. There is a vastly growing world wide community trying to get pole dancing taken seriously as a sport and art form. Pole dance competitions are no longer amateur nights at strip clubs. These events are strictly non-nude and non-stripping with the focus placed on the athleticism and artistry of the performer rather than on pure sex appeal. A group of advocates are even pushing for pole dancing to be represented as a test event in the 2012 London Olympics. However, because this is a relatively new trend, scoring for competitions is not standardized, while names of the techniques vary among different clubs in different regions. In Australia, "Miss Pole Dance Australia" was started in 2006. Allegra took home the first prize in the latest 2010 competition, and Amber Ray was first runner up. The first United States Pole Dance Federation Championship was held on March 19th 2009.

We will offer Pole Dance Artists from all over the world a platform to showcase their powerful and aesthetic art of pole dancing.

Each dancer's acrobatics of their own class will compete for the title.
