THE Tweed's top amateur pole dancers are set to spin off against dancers from the Gold Coast and Byron Bay at the inaugural Pole Catz pole dancing competition next month.

The women, some of whom who've come to the unique sport with no dance or performance backgrounds, will showcase their new-found talents at Players Showgirls, Gold Coast, on July 17.

Organiser Shayla Bartlett said the glittering showcase promised to wow audiences with 24 entrants in three categories, including Kittens (beginners), Pole Catz (moderate) and Lioness (advanced).

 

She said Roar was a chance for Pole Catz students and instructors to challenge themselves and experience the thrill of performing in front of a crowd.

"We're super excited about our pole dancing comp, this is the first one that we're going to do," Ms Bartlett said.

"We have beginner pole kittens, which has no inverts.

"Then we have our intermediate Pole Catz - they can do inverts and a little more trickier moves.

"Then we have our Lioness, which is our open division."

To compete, entrants such as Megan Hunter of Banora Point had to submit a video entry to the judging panel of Pole Catz studio managers.

The 27-year-old has only been pole dancing for two-and-a-half years and has already progressed through to the role of Twerk instructor and will compete in the Lioness category.

"Coming here all the girls are very different but very non-judgmental," she said.

Pole Catz is located on Machinery Dr, Tweed Heads, and features seven one-person poles, one stage pole, a well-lit studio with chandeliers, a mirrored wall and change room facilities.
