SO...You want to compete?
Updated: Nov 11, 2022
You've got that fiery spirit, you love pole and you want to show it off, so the thought of competing as crossed your mind but where do you even start?
Here at Altius we are affiliated with the Pole Sport Organization and are a PSO Studio. We've had several students and instructors compete in PSO competitions, Emily is a current judge on their panel and also a competition coach. She has competed several times placing both 2nd and 3rd in Championship. She has also helped several students place top three in several categories.
So, where do we even start? Well first things first, read this: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dDxyX8dXMkqqawvy57cbUK3SBeAPeIuliISWNXRsJe4/edit?usp=sharing
This document is going to include all of the information you will want to know before competition, including the different categories you can compete in, what level you might be, and the general rules and regulations of competitions.
Once you have read through that, the next step is to request a one-on-one with one of our instructors. During our first meeting we wont actually be doing any pole. We will be sitting down and discussing your vision, listen to a few songs and start to create a skeleton of your work. From there we will decide on moves, timing and more. Once we've got that down we will continue to meet weekly until your competition working on piece by piece of your music.
We will also offer open pole time specific to competitors where you can use the entire studio to practice your piece.
