LA’s First Pole Dance Championship

Los Angeles, CA – 20 of California’s most talented pole artists will compete to become California’s Pole Dance Champion on October 8, 2009. This is a competition to show the athleticism and disciplined art of Aerial Pole Dancing. The event will be held at the Green Door Nightclub, 1429 Ivar Avenue in Los Angeles, starting at 9pm.

Competitive Pole Dance is a sport that requires strength, agility, flexibility, and endurance. This is not just posing against a pole; it involves spinning, inverts, climbing, power holds, and an incredible amount of strength and agility. The challenge starts in California, as most great things do, and will move state to state. The title holder of this California Pole Dance Championship will be competing against the champions from the other states, all with the goal to be recognized as America’s Pole Dance Champion.

Pole Dance is now a widely recognized form of exercise adopted by women from all over the world and is one of the fastest growing forms of workout methods among women across the U.S. Pole dancing for fitness has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, Primetime Live, 20/20, Access Hollywood, and Celebrity Fit Club. Recently, Felix Cane, the World Dance Champion, performed with Cirque de Soleil on The Tonight Show with Cohan O’Brian, bringing Pole dance even further into the view of the mainstream public.

“A dedicated core of vertical dancers is moving pole dancing out of the strip club and into the world of art, athleticism, and empowerment.” -Los Angeles Times

“Rather than demonizing the sport of pole dancing for its less than puritanical roots, perhaps we should accept it as another feat of athletic talent. This is what we celebrate in sport: the spirit of competition against oneself and sometimes against the misconceptions of society.” –

Competitions for Pole Dance are rapidly gaining popularity across the world. For the past few years, Australia and England have been leading the movement with their momentous annual productions. Now Canada, Germany, Japan, Hungary, the Philippines, Brazil, Russia, Argentina, and even China, all have their own Pole Dance Championships. Anjel Dust Fitness, a company that offers Pole Dance Instruction in Los Angeles, has now started the tradition of Pole Dance competitions in California.
