About Pole Theatre
Pole Theatre is a great concept originating from Australia with the founders. It is the most exciting and entertaining pole competition that encourages competitors to share their story through original and exciting performances of a style that they prefer. Open to all competitors, national and international, male and female, Pole Theatre is more than a pole competition. It is an opportunity for pole performers to display their many and varied talents, in the creation of a visual spectacular to thrill and inspire their audience.
The focus of this competition is on the art of performance. Performers are encouraged to delve deep into their creative consciousness and envision a performance that will astonish and delight. Competitors must nominate one category that they wish to enter. A winner will be announced in each category, and an overall winner will also be announced. There are four categories in the competition:
- Pole Art
- Pole Comedy
- Pole Drama
- Pole Classique
The category of Pole Art is for performances incorporating another dance style (e.g. lyrical, contemporary, latin, commercial, ballet etc). Contestants will be judged on musicality and flow. Contestants are expected to create a performance that demonstrates an artistic interpretation of movement and music on the pole.
The category of Pole Classique is for performances that celebrate the beauty and art of sexy/sensual style pole dance and striptease. Contestants must wear heels for at least part of their performance (minimum 1 minute). Contestants are required to remove at least one item of their costume in this category. G-strings, pasties etc are permitted.
