Wales' 1st Regional Pole Dancing Competition
20th February 2010 @ Colwyn Bay Theatre, Abergele Road, Colwyn Bay, North Wales. 4pm-9pm
Pagan's pole is proud to present Wales' 1st ever pole dance competition. Pole dancing competitions are predominately held in England and competitors from Wales have enormous travelling, childcare and overnight costs should they wish to enter these competitions. Pagan's Pole has recognised this and decided to bring a competition here to North Wales.
The North Wales Pole Competition (NWPC) has been organised to give pole students and professionals of all abilities in North Wales an opportunity to compete in a local venue. All schools in the area have been invited to take part, and any individualís within the area independent of a school are also welcome to compete.
Any profits made from this event will be donated to the Happy Faces Childrenís Charity Reg: 1101620. Their aim is to raise awareness and money for under privileged children in North Wales. The charity raises money to buy specialist equipment for children such as: mini buses, wheel chairs, computers, sensory equipment and touch screen pads. They also organise events such as Christmas parties, trips to the zoo/theme parks and discos.
The news of the NWPC was met with much enthusiasm and many individuals have already signed up to compete from 4 of the main schools in North Wales; these schools are Pagan's Pole, LoveSpin, Ultra Modern and Sharp-Shooters. There are 4 categories within this competition, from beginners right through to professional, ensuring that there is a category for every level and no-one gets left out! We have 4 experienced pole professionals coming to judge this event, 3 of whom will be performing on the night including multi-title holder Sally-ann Giles and International Pole Dance Champion Karen Chaudy. Also some of the main organisations in the industry have offered support in the form of sponsorship, including X-Pole and Mighty Grip. Along with pole dancing other welsh dance acts will be demonstrating their dance abilities and well known photo-artist Glyn Davies will be photographing the event. This is indeed an event to be remembered, hopefully making people more aware of pole dance as a form of fitness, sport, and art; removing those sexual connotations with which it's still associated. The NWPC is guaranteed to be the start of a great many pole dancing events to come to wales.
