Entries for the very first Pole Art competition held in the Netherlands are about to open. International Dutch Pole Art Competition is the first pole competition of its kind to be held in the Netherlands, and will take place in Hilversum on the 17th and 18th of October, 2015. There are a number of categories to suit various levels and these include Champions, Professionals, Semi-Professionals, Doubles, Masters  40+, Juniors ages 12 to 17, Kids ages 8 to 11, Amateurs Ladies, Amateurs Men. The competition is being organised by the Paaldans-Academy in Rotterdam, the studio with a profile for being an industry trendsetter nationally. Tiffany Korink is the brainchild and visionary of the International Dutch Pole Art Competition. Three years ago, Tiffany took over ownership of the studio and has taken it to a whole new industry level. She was trained in pole from the age of just 17. Since Tiffany took over the management of the studio, she has organised a ShowNight at a large theatre in 2013, and started up a Demoteam of pole dancers who perform at expos and events around the Netherlands. Now, the studio holds over 25 classes a week. They include levels 1-6 level Pole Dance, Pole Power, Pole Flex, Competition Training, Modern Dance and the Demoteam. International judge, choreographer and instructor, Olga Korink (who was also the founder of Paaldans-Academy) is the Events Manager. Olga, Tiffany and a team of volunteers are working on organising the International Dutch Pole Art 2015, which is aiming to become an annual event. It celebrates individual dance freedom and interpretation for all levels of pole dancers. Costume creativity and merging other dance forms with pole is encouraged and awarded. Judges, who are well known and respected artists and individuals in the pole industry, will be especially looking for originality, storyline, and themes that really appeal to the senses of the audience.
