WHAT DO I DO NOW?

If Artistic Pole is the choice for you, there are a few things you should know:

  • Read through Artistic Pole Scoring System for rules and regulations

  • Look into taking the Artistic & Ultra Pole Training Course

  • Start preparing your artistic routine - choose music, build concept etc.

  • Note, there is no Masters 40+ in this discipline; you must compete as a senior if you are between 40-49

  • ONLY performers who have placed 1st in the Professional category in an IPSF endorsed national Artistic pole competition will automatically qualify for preliminary video entry to the WAPC. Video entries will be judges by IPSF appointed judges for qualification to IPSF finals.
