Battles

Two solo competitors or groups battle it off on stage to upbeat, urban music with the poles set to static mode.

The battles are timed with a certain number of rounds and in that time, you must show the audience and the judges your skills on and off the pole. There will be no scoring system, winners will be chosen at the end of the round by audience impact and the judges’ score cards (out of 10 points).

The winner will carry on battling the winner from another group until there’s one group left to be declared as the winner of the competition. The above applies for the solo competitors as well.
