2012 Miss Pole dance UK National Championships Mr Pole fitness UK

Sarah Scott, Bendy Kate and Nico Modestine, The 8th Miss Pole Dance UK Fitness and Dance championships was held on the 2nd June in Brighton where three amazing championships showcased their skill and athleticism of the most talented pole dance performers in the UK

At 3pm the males lead the day with  the  Mr Pole Fitness UK Championship following on from that at 4pm followed Miss Pole Dance UK doubles category to culminate in the  finale of Miss Pole Dance UK professional category female singles category.  These competitions were not possible without the amazing contribution of the international judges this year who supported the UK competitors

Headed by founder Kay Penney, all three competitions were over looked by Kay herself. Kay still as passionate to select professional and friendly ambassadors to represent what she has worked so hard for over the last 10 years, representing pole artistry, educating and promoting the talented and ambitious to fly the flag of this still relatively new form of dance and fitness - over the years Kay is excited to see the stigma decrease year by year - as her message was simple back in 2005 - providing a stage where the performers could showcase their art and passion without the fear of being wrongly judged - and with the increase of national support with the winners of this prestigious national championship focusing on this gallant task - for all the competitors it not just about the 5 minutes they get to perform it becomes their life, their dedicated religion and art.

International judge Alma Pirner, who has become a very dear friend who supports us in the UK and internationally too.Alma is the organiser of the Hungarian Miss Pole Dance National championships since 2005 who is also the owner  and creator of the first Pole fitness company in Hungary, performer and instructor at dollhouse aerial studio in Budapest,  next on the judging panel was Akos, partner of Alma who is an accomplished teacher in fitness and pole fitness and is the envy of many a male pole fitness instructor, he has a very active role and supports dollhouse and the national pole dance championships in Budapest and was co host with Alma last year at the World Pole Dance  - World Pole Sport & Fitness Championships last October in Budapest
