DESCRIPTION OF POLE DANCE FITNESS:
Pole dancing is strictly an acrobatic orientated dance discipline and there is absolutely NO NUDITY OR STRIPPING involved.
Pole dancing is a form of performing art, a combination of dancing and acrobatics. It requires significant strength, flexibility, fitness and endurance. Pole dancing tones the body and provides a total body workout, stretching techniques, strength training, fat burning cardio vascular exercise as well as pole tricks, pole moves and fitness training. All our events are strictly non-nude and non-stripping with the focus placed on the artistic and technical skills of the dancer.
Pole Dance Fitness has been accepted and recognised as a proper DANCE DISCIPLINE on S.A. National Level under South African Arts & Culture in 2010 and allowed to compete for National S.A. Green and Gold National Colours alongside all the other already established dance disciplines for the first time in 2011.
Pole Dance Fitness is NOT recognised in South Africa as a Sport on National Level and one cannot get S.A. Colours for Pole Dance as a Sport in South Africa but ONLY as a DANCE DISCIPLINE under the Dance Masters Association of South Africa (DMASA) and the South African Pole Dance Fitness Association (SAPDFA).
