Showcase 2023 – 14th and 15th October 2023 – The Roxy Theatre, Grandwest Casino

Show off your moves at the 11th Annual Pole Dance Cape Town Showcase! 

On behalf of the Pole Dance Cape Town Team, we invite you to join us on stage for another magical pole and aerial production.
Any pole and aerial artist, from novice to professional, will be welcome to prepare a piece to perform on stage to an audience of friends, family and pole and aerial enthusiasts. This is the perfect opportunity to show off your pole and aerial skills, push yourself to the next level and surprise yourself at what your body can do.  

The details

You can take part in a solo, duet or group, but we encourage our novice students to group together to offer each other support as you push your boundaries. Solo performers may be asked to send in a 1 min audition video.   

There will be three performances and should these sell out before the time, we may look at adding a 4th show. 
Saturday 14th October 2023 at 17h00 and 20h00
Sunday 15th October 2023 at 14h00 and maybe a 17h00 if needed

We have 2 compulsory full dress rehearsals:
Friday 6th October 2023: at the studio from 18h00 so we can work on the transitions and run the full show
Friday 13th October 2023 at the venue so you can get a feel for the spacing of the poles and the stage itself. 

More info 

Our theme for this year’s showcase is ‘A spooky affair’ – performances that delves into the mysterious and enchanting realm of the supernatural. Drawing inspiration from ghostly tales, haunting folklore, and eerie legends, this mesmerising show takes audiences on a thrilling journey through the shadows, leaving them spellbound and on the edge of their seats.  You can choose anything within the theme, just make sure that it is appropriate for all ages.

With so many songs to choose from, we will be limiting the songs to a maximum of 2 songs per artist to keep a variety in the show. 

Performances may be between 2.5 and 3.5 minutes.  

There will be three poles set in a triangle, two in front and one at the back.
The poles are 45mm powder coated and are 4m high.
The 2 front poles are 3,5m apart and the back pole is 2,4m in a diagonal from the front poles.

You may choose from 3 options for your pole configuration:  

  • 2 front poles on spinning and the back one on static (SP/SP/ST) 
  • 2 front poles on static and the back one on spinning (ST/ST/SP)
  • All 3 poles on spinning (SP/SP/SP) 

We have 3 aerial points.
