Levels and Categories
Level 1 - I'm gonna barf, please cheer
Hi, I'm new here, I've never done this before and I'm scared, but I'm doing it anyway because I'm a boss. Please cheer loudly to drown out my nerves.
What you may or may not see: Spins, Climbs and maybe some really cool right side up moves.
Level 2 - Eeeeek but also YAY!
I know I've been doing this for a bit now but oh my gosh it's scary still, but mostly I LOVE IT! I have a few new moves that I'm excited to perform. You'll know it because I'll be uncontrollably happy when I nail them.
What you may or may not see: Inverts and upside down moves with a lot of contact to the pole.
Level 3 - I think I found my groove
It's getting easier to get in the zone before I hit the stage. I've done a few of these now, and I have my favorite go-to moves in my back pocket. I found my flow and I listen to my music and stretch to calm my nerves. I've worked hard on a few new tricks I can't wait to show you! I think I've got this.
What you may or may not see: Aerial inverts, and one armed spins, so many upside down moves, maybe even a few in a row.
Level 4 - I have some awesome moves
I'm ready for this! Not only do I have my back pocket moves, I have a few crowd-pleasers too! You'll know when you see them because you'll be like "WOAH!" I can't wait to put this on stage!
What you may or may not see: Some 2 point holds, and an aerial spin or two.
Level 5 - Get ready to be impressed
Get ready to be impressed. I've done this so many times I have a section of my closet dedicated to costumes. You probably follow me on insta and if you don't you will after this routine. You'll probably comment "Thank you" on my cool posts. #YoureWelcome.
What you may or may not see: What won't you see?!
Doubles/Groups - Gotta get with my friends!
I think the best part of being on stage is sharing the stage (or screen!) Dancing in unison or doing partner skills is my idea of a good time. I'm going to call my pole fam now and remind them of that pole routine we've always wanted to do together!
Logistics: Each person in the duet or group will have to register separately but you will perform together.
Freestyles- Why Not!
You know what I can do anytime I want? Dance to a random song on a playlist. You know what I can't do? Dance to a random song while other people are watching me from the comfort of their own homes! Sounds like a dream, a super weird, interesting, scary dream. But a dream nonetheless!
Logistics: We will pick a song for you to perform too and you will find out what the song is after you take your starting pose on stage. For virtual shows- If you are filming from home we will send you a track and trust that you won't listen to it before you press play and give us your truest freestyle. If you opt into the studio shoot, it would be like the in person event, where you take a starting pose, we start the music, and GO!
