The Competition
Miss Pole Dance America is the combination of a modern-day showgirl and a legendary pole dancer, demonstrating superior physical athleticism alongside exquisite technique and femininity. She's also a performer who meets the entertainment industry standard both on and off the stage - ready to tour with Rihanna or film with Tarantino - gracefully navigating dual roles as a mainstream performer and exceptional leader within the pole dance community.
