Why do we call ourselves the first "independently produced" show in the Bay Area?
The pole community is full of many amazing pole studios who put on shows throughout the year. However, those shows generally require you to be a student at that studio in order to perform. We are not affiliated with any studio, are all-inclusive and welcome anyone who wants to perform. No submission video or skill set required to get on stage with us! Just register and you're in!
Who is the Pole Presentational
This event has been run by Bay Area pole dancers since its inaugural event August 23, 2014. We love this platform for pole dancers of all levels to perform in a safe and welcoming environment among our pole community. Our mission is to celebrate pole in its many forms!
