Calling All Polers

23 Jan

I was so psyched to find out that this year’s International Pole Convention will be held in Los Angeles. I immediately registered for a convention pass (prices here) and quickly signed up for the VIP workshops of two of my favorite dancers – Helsinki, Finland’s pride, Oona Kivela and from Bobbi’s Pole Studio in Sydney, Cleo the ‘Hurricane’. The VIP workshops are pricey at $120 each, but there are only 10 slots for each of these classes so that every student truly gets an in-depth, one-on-one attention of a private lesson. A convention pass gives you access to  all free workshops (entry is on a first-come-first-served basis), the Showcase of Stars, and forums. There are also less expensive workshops (ranging from $50-$75) but those allow a maximum of 40 students with only 20 poles (yikes!) – meaning 2 polers will have to share a pole. Uh…no thank you.  

(Update: Cleo’s VIP workshop on 6/23 is sold out! I am so glad I signed up early! Felix Cane’s VIP workshop is also sold out.)    

For all you SoCal polers, register early!
