Pole for U aNd I Inter University Competition Review 2012
Posted: Feb 21 2012
the 18th February we headed into London for the Pole for U aNd I
Inter University Competition, which took place at the Pimlico Academy. There
wasn’t pole dancing when we were at University so students are lucky to have
the chance to try something different and learn pole dancing.
were from Universities all over the UK with some travelling from as far as Scotland.
Judges on the night were Hanka Vanselaar, Jess Norris, Kay Penney and Pippa Caesar.
We had a great time meeting everyone at our stall and watching the performances. There were a lot more competitors than at other events we’d been to before with categories including Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, Men’s and Doubles. Most competitors chose slow ballads to perform to with lots of different costumes and themes including wings, face paint and Freddy Mercury.
flag move was one of the most popular moves in routines during the day and
there was also some amazing advanced moves such as drops and handsprings which
were really impressive.
There were also 2 birthdays on the day of the competition and everyone sang happy birthday to Rachel Parsons and Beth Patterson.
Beth Randall won the Advanced category for the second year running and Kent University made a clean sweep in the Intermediate category.
Special mention to Charlotte Whitecross who was wearing Mika shorts for her routine. :-)
