"Are you as excited as us to see Chilli Rox again?! She’s just received another sash with Coco! Winning the Professional Comedy division, we can’t wait to see you." - Miss Pole Dance ACT/TAS Facebook Page
The opening act.... well can we expect less? NO! All the competitors wasted no time in warming the audience up with their pure talents. The acrobatic's and floor work where heavenly to watch, and sure warmed the audience up for the first opening act.
34 eager competitors await their fate backstage as the first division is announced. The doubles division wasn't held at last years Miss Pole Dance ACT/TAS state heats, but with the ever growing pole community it doesn't seem to surprise us that they've had to incorporate it this year.
Starting the evening was the doubles division, 6 teams battle it out on stage dressed from a fiery red to high-vis orange. Group competitors Cheesy Pleasers, Andily, RoxDix, Brides of the Dammed, Double D's and Marilyn.
The amateur division housed 14 eager competitors, these girls are certainly on their way to the top, with a special thank you to all teachers, studios, partners, friends and family for all their encouragement, help and inspiration. If it wasn’t for you, these girls wouldn’t be half of what they are now, nor preform as they did tonight. Amateur competitors Beltane, Sammi, Louise, Taylor - Jade, Jess, Aurora, Haidee, Wenna, Jay Elle, Dreya, Flexi Lexi, Krista, Sofia Sin and Kaylah
Intermission time and well deserved at that. A powerhouse first half of the night and may I say for amateur division... well, I wouldn't be surprised seeing them in an elite division soon, such talent and confidence they have considering they've barely stepped on stage.
Moving on-to the final division, the Professional Division. These girls are here year after year, training hard and fighting for the title and a place at this years Miss Pole Dance Championships.
To rock the world came the professional division, these women are strong, independent and confident in what they do, this is their life and living. So, it’s no wonder they came to battle it out for the title. And a battle we got, these girls hit the stage and hit it hard, the audience’s jaws hit the floor with utter fascination and shock at what the physical body could do. Professional competitors Emma, Amity Thrills, Kristy Dallas, Hannah Rose, Katy Eve, Cara, Honey and Sang.
As the night draws to a close, the judges have a tough time collaborating with each other to announce the winners of the Miss Pole Dance ACT/TAS State Heats.
After much deliberation the sashes are unpacked and winners announced.
