First Amateur Pole Dancing Competition In Malaysia

Clorets will be organizing the first Amateur Pole Dancing Competition in Malaysia. The preliminaries will be held from 1 July to 3 August 2008.

Pole dancing has recently caught on as an increasingly popular form of exercise and dance in which women (and sometimes men) use the pole as a prop for their workouts and dance routines. The latest fitness sensation to hit the streets of KL, pole dancing is a fun, physically demanding form of exercise that can make one feel fit and sexy at the same time. It is gaining recognition as an art form and is now performed in various places such as theatres, cabarets and clubs.

Clorets have placed a full page advertisement in The Sun yesterday and put up an easy step-by-step guide for those keen to participate. They are

Step 1- Find a pole (or a chair)

Step 2 - Wear comfortable clothes that expose your arms and legs

Step 3 - For maximum grip, do not apply body lotion.

Step 4 - Choose 1 of the 6 dance routines featured on
The 6 dance routines are Hip Hop, Ballroom, Eastern/Belly, Exotic, Sporty & Duo.

Step 5 - Create a 40-second video of yourself performing that routine

Step 6 - Submit your video via

The competition is open to everyone (I believe that includes men) over the age of 18.

15 lucky semi-finalists will be selected and specially trained by a pole dancing instructor before competing in the Grand Finals which will be held at Ruums Bar & Club, Kuala Lumpur on September 5.

The prizes that will be up for grabs are:-

1st prize: RM5000 cash and a Celebrity Fitness 1-year gym membership worth RM3000

2nd prize: RM3000 cash and a Celebrity Fitness 9-month gym membership worth RM2500
