Last weekend, eleven travelers (plus a few significant others) from our humble studio made the six-hour drive to the PSO Great Lakes pole competition held at the Vittum Theater, just a few miles from downtown Chicago. We had nine competitors entered into eleven different events. Six had never competed before.
The event spanned two days attracting over 130 crazy talented performers representing 26 studios from all across the country in 36 different events. The competition was tough and we saw some absolutely amazing performances from Entertainment, Dramatic and Championship (straight up Ninjas) to the more exotic Low Flow, Floor and Shadowbanned categories.
Our crew had one performance on Friday night and ten on Saturday.
- Miki took GOLD in level 3 Entertainment and SILVER in level 3 Dramatic
- Kiki took SILVER in level 1 Entertainment
- Emmy took GOLD in level 4 Championship and GOLD in level 4 Dramatic
- Cherry Spice took BRONZE in level 1 Dramatic
- Erin took SILVER in level 2 Dramatic
- Amberly took GOLD in level 1 Floor Work and Flow
- JessiKay took BRONZE in level 4 Dramatic
- Breezy Lee took SILVER in level 4 Entertainment
- Amber Lynn took SILVER in level 3 Shadowbanned
I am beyond proud of all these amazing women (and have been all along). Their dedication, courage and strength inspire me every day. I am hearing excitement as they are looking forward to future competitions.
We have a few people doing virtual competition early in 2022 as well. I will keep you apprised of the results when they are posted.
You are loved more than you know.
