The public is invited to a night of dance and dazzle at the Pole Factor competition at the Nassau Centre in Groote Schuur High School on Saturday 2 December.

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.

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.”

Benita Bouwer, previous winner of the Pole Factor Cape Town competition, will be the head judge.

She says: “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 event itself has proven that it can compete with international events of the same nature, entrants bring world-class performances to the stage and the buzz behind the curtain is so supportive. Although I’m not competing this year, I am looking forward to judging, and quite frankly, the harder the better.”
