As lockdown continues for events, we wanted to make sure that you had something to work towards.
Our new lockdown competition allows a chance for everyone to enter and be creative.
First .. Pick a category.
We have 3 options.
Category 1: Pole Theatre UK..
Choose between Pole Art, Pole Drama or Pole Comedy.
Tell YOUR Story, be as creative as you want to. Use props or just simply yourself, but make it beautiful, make it personal and make it creative.
25% of the takings from this category will be donated to Shaina Cruea's little boys fight against cancer. please see her Instagram and go fund me page to see their story. - https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-baby-drew-kick-cancer?utm_campaign=p_cp_display&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=customer
Shaina has always been a huge supporter of Pole Theatre so we thought this is an amazing cause to help her and her family.
Category 2: Dance Filthy & EGeneration.
Choose a sexy style of your choice, it can be filthy, it can be sultry, slinky it can be anything you want it to be.
Must be in Heels and celebrate the sexy side of Pole.
25% of the takings from this category will be donated to The Northern Sex Workers Collective.
The Northern Sex Worker's Collective, founded by Toni Misty (@mistypoledancer) was created in response to the attack on Blackpool's Strip Clubs, and the discrimination certain factions of pole and sensual dancers face for simply autonomously choosing to dance. All sexy dancers deserve the right to express themselves on their own terms, without facing persecution or industry eradication, no matter whether the setting is work or just for fun. NSWC is organised by SWorkers who are also Pole Dance instructors and studio owners, and understands the importance of unity within the pole community: that our sex work siblings are fought for, respected and included in all levels of an industry which grew from our roots. Many competitors you see on pole stages, or whose workshops or classes you take, are SWorkers. Many are not 'out'. Pole and SWork are inexorably intertwined, and it's so important when pole companies and brands come forward in vocal support of SWorker rights.
NSWC is beyond delighted to have Dance Filthy UK supporting our work, and to be garnishing a competitor with a "Favourite Filthy" special award sash. To keep updated on what we're doing to unite the North and fight against Policy that harms legal workers, please follow us at @nswcuk on Instagram!
