Miss Pole Dance UK 2016/2017

12 year old pole dancer Mimi from Thatcham, is all set to perform at the professional championships at the Hawth Theatre at the annual Miss Pole Dance UK Championships, ON Saturday 7th October 2017 from 3pm - 10pm

Mimi first had her debut when she was just 9 years old at the Miss Pole Dance UK amateur/ semi professional championships. She first got into pole to overcome her stress and worry whilst her older brother was being bullied at school

Kay Penney from Pole Passion, the event organisers says, ‘Mimi is now a National Treasure and a youth ambassador for pole clothing Wink design and pole fitness and dance across the world and they identified her talent very early on when she was just 6 when she first started to pole dance under Ruth Vass.'

Mimi will be chaperoned by her mum, Kelly James who is her biggest fan

Miss Pole Dance UK was the UK’s first, largest and most successful National Pole Dance championships, with a vision to provide a professional and safe platform for the athlete to showcase their talent

This spectacular show at the Hawth is also home and host  to two other National competitions on the same day;   Mr Pole Fitness UK, for men on the pole and Miss Pole Dance UK Synchronised Doubles Championships.

In 2018 Miss Pole Dance will be introducing its Youth category for children who love to keep fit, dance and move around the pole for fitness and fun.  Backed by the World Pole Dance federation, the organiser Kay Penney, mother of three, says, ‘Its now time to embrace the children’s category for pole sport and fitness. Many parents, who currently pole have been asking me to induce the children category for years.’  - Kay is now finalising the instructor training for the youth category for her 40+ instructor and apprentice team following her training  programme where she currently has 15 ares of license operations across the world and most recently supported Romania in setting up their national championships too and now has her training ONLINE reaching countries such as China, Japan and the USA 

Kay and her team has been innovating  pole fitness techniques and its safe equipment since 2001 with its head office in Crawley the company and events are growing exponentially. She accredited her programmes with the Register of Exercise professionals in 2008 

A breathtaking and mesmerising celebration of elite pole sport artists and performers will host the show held over seven hours with over 20 top UK competitors and World Class Champion performers including Horsham based Fi Steps dance school and Rowena who has a a BA and MA in dance practices and her current research focus revolves around the cultural position of pole dance and how it challenges themes of empowerment and objectification.

Pole World Festival, Pole Dance competition of the year 2017 Miss Pole Dance UK
It’s an honour for myself, Kay Penney to be asked to send in this short video as owner and founder of Miss Pole Dance UK and to be short listed and nominated here today in Bristol at the inaugural Pole World Festival
I want to say a massive thank you, on behalf of everyone who has contributed in making Miss Pole Dance UK such a huge success over the last 13 years since its launch in 2004 and in creating such a professional platform and stage for so many talented performers and competitors.

We are all so proud to have created the pole greats such as Elena Gibson, our very first Miss Pole Dance UK Winner to the more recent champion Cheryl Teegan

I want to say a very special thank you to YOU– the pole community, and for your continuing support and allowing my vision to flourish each year and by giving the prestige to the 80 plus champions we have crowned to date, both men and women.

With the continuing growth and popularity over the years seeing the innovation and launch of a doubles category – created by Miss Pole Dance pre-seeding Australia 😊
the amateurs and semi pro categories quickly followed

The male categories – Mr Pole Fitness UK was launched in 2009 and more recently this year the launch of the GROUPS category
There’s more to come and It is my honour to be speaking to you all today via video

Thank you and we hope very much to see you all in Crawley on 7th October to see who will be crowned the next Miss Pole Dance UK Championships

Good luck to all the nominees and long may all the competitions continue to flourish in our fabulous pole industry  - Living with passion !!
