Miss Pole Dance 2013 Ticket sales

Miss Pole Dance UK is the UK's first, longest and most successful Pole Dance Fitness event and was pioneered by Kay Penney founder of Pole Passion back in 1995 with the view of pro-actively taking Pole Dance Fitness into the mainstream dance and fitness culture.

Miss Pole Dance events have been instrumental in bringing pole fitness as a recognised sport (first competition in 2005), and has made this more accessible and accepted as a highly technical dance form and fitness routine, available to everyone. 

Miss Pole Dance showcases strength, agility and the art of pole dance through extremely challenging choreographed routines from the very best dancers who represent the cutting edge of pole sport and fitness in the United Kingdom today.

Miss Pole Dance is now the most prestigious pole dance and fitness event in the World with the Miss Pole dance and Mr Pole fitness title being the most prestigious in the industry, attracting interest from media and other countries keen to follow our lead. Miss Pole Dance is an annual event, divided into many categories, dedicated to the sheer athleticism and expertise of the top pole performers in the industry, irrespective of their background or culture. The competition team works tirelessly to support, promote and empower both men and women to be the best they can be, keeping fit and to showcase and express their skills in a safe non-judgemental environment that is Miss Pole Dance.

Pole Passion Grading

Congratulations to the many Pole Passion students who have completed their level 1 grading certifications last Sunday 19th May at Nuffield health gym and wellbeing centre.
All areas including Crawley Worth and Crawley Bewbush, Reigate, East Grinstead, Littlehampton, Bognor, Chertsey, Redhill and Brighton were represented

For many students this was their first time performing their short routines outside their class training sessions and a very nervous time for many who have had no previous experience of linking moves together to make a performance.
The students choose their own music and routines under the watchful eye of their Pole Passion instructors. Naturally those with a dance background find the grading slightly easier than those who have had no other formal dance or choreography training
The Pole Passion grading’s are very new this year, although written by Kay Penney founder of Pole Passion and Debbie Merchant a former Pole Passion advanced instructor in 2009 it is only now this year it has been implemented across the schools of Pole Passion. The grading system is devised to support not only the Pole Passion team of instructors all teaching off the comprehensive, moves, transitions, tricks and poses but also to create a family of likeminded pole fitness enthusiasts and polers to share, encourage, motivate and network together in a non judgemental gym environment.

The theme, being pole fitness, where no heels, costumes or props are allowed in the routine as they are reserved for the annual Miss Pole Dance UK national championships held on 29th June (Amateur and semi pro) and 15th September 2013 (professional male and female categories)

Very well done to all the participants who all gained a PASS PLUS grade on the day and we hope to see you all at the next grading date 22nd September 2013 at Nuffield health and wellbeing Crawley West Sussex
