For the third consecutive year the Mother City will play host to – we’re just going to put it out there – THE BEST damn pole dance competition on the national calendar, The Pole Factor 2017!
For those of you who aren’t aware… (have you been living under a rock?!) The Pole Factor is an annual competition that celebrates the athleticism and artistry of pole dance with showcases across four different genres of pole dance including;
Pole Acrobat – the sporty side of pole; strength, power, agility and athleticism
Pole Artiste – the artistic side of pole; expression, interpretation and movement
Pole Provocateur – the exotic side of pole; sensual, heels and flexibility
Pole Duets – doubles on the pole; two dancers incorporating any of the three styles above
It’s open to amateur and professional levels, male and female, national and international contestants; and each year promises to be bigger and better than the last.
This year, we’ll see you at the Nassau Centre, Groote Schuur High School in Newlands on Saturday, 2 December from 7PM – diarise the date. Or better yet, get to Quicket and buy your tickets now so you don’t forget. Last year’s tickets were sold out in a flash, resulting in quite a few despondent souls feeling very sorry for themselves indeed, so don’t say we didn’t warn you… the FOMO is real.
Twenty finalists have been announced for 2017 and at the end of the night only eight will walk away with titles. But before we officially announce this year’s finalists here, let’s give one last round of applause to our 2016 champions:
