I Want to Break Free (Pole Room)

A great line up of performers (Karry Summers, Maree Prebensen, Andre Corey, Larry Wong, Giada, Nick Pitt, Kapi Huria, Poleman Pete, Amy Polaris, Ernestine, Freya Devine, Jennifer Starrdust, Raha Star and Rachel Palmer) from all over the country put on a fabulous show for us on Friday 22nd March at the Fringe Bar. The show was 80’s themed and a great load of fun!

It was my first show to attend and I brought two girlfriends with me – it’s safe to say we would definitely go again.

The MC’s were great - they kept the show running smoothly with quick quips and many laughs from the audience.

It was fantastic to be able to see reigning NZ Pole champion Karry Summers perform for us as well as 2nd runner up, Raha Star. Both had my jaw to the floor in awe. Raha’s performance was filled with energy and awe inspiring strength and flexibility – my favourite performance of the night and I would recommend anyone to see her if you ever have the chance (or see her on youtube alongside the other fantastic dancers).

Andre Corey has been selected for the Mr Pole Dance championships in Sydney this year, and it’s very easy to see why. Three other guys performed and it was great to see their enthusiasm and theatrics – not to mention that they were good to watch too!

The only negative feedback I have is that it’s quite an awkward bar for a show. The seating was tight and if you don’t come early, you may very well be at the back and I’m unsure you’d be able to see much.

Other than that, every performance was great, fantastic organisation and commentary by the MC’s and the song choices were fantastic. Bring on the next show!
