Happy Kiss Pole Fitness
Use the form on the right to apply to compete/showcase at the Happy Kiss Pole Fitness Competition taking place on
February, 10, 2017
The goal of the Happy Kiss Pole Fitness Competition is to encourage and prepare our students to compete in the various local/state/national pole dance competition. This year, we have decided to place greater emphasis on theme rather than the technical aspects of competing. This year’s theme is EPIC. Be bold, tell us a story through your dancing, get creative with costumes and use the Baughman Center as a source of inspiration.

Dressing Room/Waiting Area
When deciding what Level to compete in - think of what Level you feel confident and comfortable in. The Level class you are currently in DOES NOT dictate when Level you should compete in. For example, if you are currently taking Level 2 classes but haven’t mastered a clean and consistent invert - you should compete in Level 1. If you competed in the 2016 competition - you should consider moving up a Level. Send us an email with any questions: email@example.com
Send your application video to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Show us your skills in the video! We will need to see several moves to be sure you are ready to compete at the Level you are applying for.
Level 1: 2 spins, a climb & a pole sit
Level 2: 2 spins, a drop & an invert
Level 3: 2 spins, a drop/tumble & an aerial invert
Not sure what else to do? Check out the Pole Level’s list HERE. We may suggest that you move up/down a level depending on your abilities.
Deadline to submit application and video is January 15th, 2017.
You will be required to perform a routine that is 2:30 – 5:00 minutes long.
All of the following moves will need to be included in your routine:
Level 1: Spins & a climb
Level 2: Spins & a drop
Level 3: Spins & a drop/tumble
Remember to perform only moves that are at your Level or below. For example, if you are competing in Level 2, you are restricted from performing moves that are considered Level 3.
This year, more emphasis will be placed on the theme. Judges will be paying attention to the theme and you will be scored on:
1. Your song choice
3. Your emotional/artistic expression
4. Creativity with use of space
5. Telling a story through your dancing
