Energetic pole dancing students and instructors will be battling for eight titles from 19:00 to 21:00.

This annual competition is aimed at celebrating the athleticism and artistry of pole dancing across four different genres of the sport, including acrobat, artiste, provocateur and duets.

Kathy Lee, organiser of the competition and owner of the Pole Project studio, says this year’s competition promises to be bigger and better with participants showing much improvement and passion.

“I have competed at many pole dance events across the globe and I can safely say that the Pole Factor Cape Town is one of my favourites... the buzz behind the curtain is so supportive."

She says the competition is growing every year and the number of entrants has increased.

“The surprise element comes on the day as our finalists’ routines and costumes are kept secret until their big reveal on stage. It gets progressively harder to pick absolute winners because the quality and effort of the performances get so much better each year. Needless to say, we are excited to see what these guys and girls bring to the table this year.”
