The highly anticipated Artistic Pole marked its debut during the 2017/2018 competition season with Federations and Endorsed Competitions ramping up inclusion of this more artistic version of Pole in their National and Regional competitions. The second annual World Artistic Pole Championships will be held in July 2018 in the Spain during World Pole Weekend.

 

Artistic Pole, the more artistically inclined sibling of Pole Sports, encourages creativity and emboldens freedom of expression with more emphasis on artistic interpretation and is judged by the newly created Freestyle Pole Series Rules, which does not include a Code of Points, but relies more heavily on art, choreography and musicality.
