Princess K Pole Fitness Showcase
It might have been nearly 9 years in the making but it was well worth the wait …

Saturday 22 September 2018 saw the very first Princess K Fitness Student Showcase!

A fabulously lively theme of “A Night at the Movies” saw 21 of the PKF Pole Dolls along with Guest Poler, the amazing Annie Norris, perform to various, and diverse, movie tunes from Disney’s Be Our Guest through two iconic Bond songs, a Dirty Dancing mix and on to the latest blockbuster, The Greatest Showman.  There was also a special Strut Routine performed by the PKF Instructors to start the Showcase and a very sassy Burlesque Routine featuring the PKF Diva Dolls.

To complete the theme, the hall was decorated with two full-size Oscar statues; a very large perspex Sean Connery; a clapper-board, red carpet and a Hollywood star for the audience to walk over!
