Pole dancing championship Saturday in New Orleans

Posted By on Tue, Mar 20, 2012 at 1:42 PM

It’s not what you think, exactly. This event is the Southern Regional Pole Dance Fitness Championships with competitors that include beauty queens and others who have adopted pole dancing as a fitness regimen. It’s a trend that is gaining traction, and organizers say there is a movement to make pole dancing an Olympic sport.

The event starts at 11 a.m. Saturday, March 24, at the Fine Arts Center (1733 Constantinople St.). In addition to the competition, vendors will display fitness-related wares. It is open to the public, and tickets are $25-$50 (other packages are available that include food and drinks). For ticket information, go here.

Competitors include 2011 Miss Georgia, Von Brianna, 2011 Miss Texas Jennifer Huff, 2010 Miss Georgia Nicki Shaw, 2011 Miss South Carolina Karri Mae Telford and 2011 Miss North Carolina Sabrina Woods. Matthew Sabella, a personal trainer at New Orleans Athletic Club, is among five judges.
