The Pole Expo, created by the legendary Fawnia, is now one of the largest pole dance events in the United States and welcomes pole dance enthusiasts every fall from all over the globe to Las Vegas, Nevada to celebrate the beauty, art and sport of pole dancing! I am SUPER excited to get to attend for the first time this year (2014) so I will be posting lots of pics on Learn Pole Dancing Facebook page of the event!
The mission of the event really caught my attention:
"To promote pole fitness to the world and bring the best of pole fitness to you! Pole Expo is an event that exists to educate visitors, fans and artists from around the world about the history and continuing significance of pole fitness. It carries out this mission through its operation of world-class workshops, seminars, competitions, performances and expo that exhibits, interprets and celebrates this life changing dance form."
With the pass you purchase to get into the event, you get:
There are more than 180 workshops available for purchase, 75 instructors and 50 free seminars that teach you:
"I started this event by writing my idea’s down on paper, and two years later coincidentally connecting with one my students Kerri Friedman who is very experienced with event production, such a cirque and recently EDC. The first event took 18 months to plan; I wanted to be as flawless and exciting as possible.
At the event, pole dancers will unite with their global pole family and enjoy free workshops, seminars, and performances. Plus each morning they will fuel up on a complimentary breakfast before their free yoga class, or embark on their quest for merchandise from our 44 vendors or take their favorite workshops by 75 of our industries best instructors.
2014 is opening with a bang, as we take over The Pearl Theater inside the Palms with the Pole Classic Competition & Pole Star Showcase. Everyone should arrive into Vegas by Wednesday September 3rd so they can enjoy the registration process, and Welcome Reception on Thursday, immediately before the competition and showcase begins.
Pole dancers will leave Vegas re-charged and exhausted at the same time. They will be 200% motivated, and ready to take on the world. We are Planet Pole!"
