I came across http://poleart.org/ and am amazed at how refreshing it is!  Check this out from their manifest:

Emphasising expressiveness and originality while toning down sports-like competitiveness, the heart of Pole Art has always been the showcase, a stage space exempt from virtually all rules, emerging fresh ideas and unexpected takes on pole dance every year.

This is one of the older trailers on the site.  It highlights how expressive the dancing is in this event.  I love that pole has something for everyone. Expect more posts from me on the art of pole!
