their ability to entertain and engage the audience.

Pole Skill

In all categories, competitors will be judged on their control and execution of tricks. Competitors must be able

to perform tricks and combinations with fluidity and control. Competitors with a high level of difficulty of

tricks will score well only if they perform those tricks well.

Costume/Theme

All contestants will be judged on creativity and originality in costume and theme. The contestant’s choice of

costume must be appropriate for their performance and enhance the story or theme of the performance. The

theme must be consistent and relevant to the performance and/or the story.

Appropriateness of music choice and musical interpretation

In Pole Classique and Pole Art, contestants will be judged on their choice of music and how effectively they interpret their music.

Dance and floor work

In Pole Classique and Pole Art, judges will be looking for originality in sequences, smoothness in transitions and execution of dance and floorwork.

Storyline development

In Pole Drama, it is essential to tell a story. Judges will be looking for clarity in the message and story told in

the performance.

Movement and use of stage

In Pole Drama and Pole Comedy, competitors are judged not on dance but on movement and use of stage.

Competitors should move confidently and with purpose, and effectively use the stage area.

Incorporation of striptease and sexy/sensual style movement into pole and floorwork In Pole Classique, competitors must demonstrate mastery of sensual/sexy movement and dance. Competitors are required to strip/remove at least one item of clothing, and will be judged on the “striptease” element. Competitors are required to wear heels.
