Travis Clemmons @ Stripperfest 12: Queen Of The Pole

(Tamie Yost – Canon Rebel DXT with flash)

The most grueling competition at Stripperfest 12 was undoubtedly Queen of the Pole.  Two full blown qualification rounds on Saturday Evening, followed by the top three dancers being asked to return for a final round on Sunday.

One of the main problems with trying to put together a competitive performance in this category is that the Dancer has to find the proper balance between Pole Moves, Stage Moves and Audience Enticement.  The Pole is your dance partner.  It has to be the main focus of your attention.  At the same time, you occasionally have to break away and make a show of what else you can do.

Strut your stuff.

Flirt with the audience.

Let them know you’re working hard for their pleasure and you sincerely appreciate their attention.

Then saunter right back to the pole and show the crowd that you have what it takes to make a twelve foot tall piece of stainless steel beg for mercy.

Competing in both Queen of the Pole and Queen of the Stage, Vayda Kiss proved that she has the ability to work a situation for all it’s worth.  Unfortunately, it’s difficult to be the absolute best in two different disciplines.
