Stages Pole Fitness Pole Performers
In September of 2018, Stages Pole Fitness in Romford hosted their 4th Annual Showcase & Awards event and tied it in with celebrations for their 5th birthday as a pole school. This event has been organised each year to give students the opportunity to share their poling abilities, skills and tricks with their friends & family and is highly anticipated each year!  

This year the show consisted of 15 pole performances including solos, doubles, group pieces and guest performers from around the country. Upon arrival and during the interval, guests were offered refreshments and invited to buy tickets for the charity raffle – the results of which were called just before the finale group piece. Lots of guests won fabulous prizes, sourced from local shops and businesses and a total of £168 was raised for the ‘Make A Wish’ foundation.

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!
