his year, X-POLE sponsored the 2nd Annual Halifax Theatrix Pole Competition hosted by Studio In Essence in Halifax, Nova Scotia.inesS™ put on a fantastic sold-out show that highlighted the talent of pole artists throughout Atlantic Canada in 5 categories: Pole Amateur, Pole Doubles, Pole Comedy, Pole Art (A) and (B).
The floor-to-ceiling brass competition poles gleamed like gold on the beautifully lit stage, framed by the black curtain backdrop and the warm wood floors. The Pole Amateur category was won by Christine Ausman, with her emotional performance about love and loss that tugged the heartstrings.
The winning duo for Pole Doubles was Faith Flemming and Melissa Rutherford, who created a fun and heartwarming performance about friendship and inspiration.
The Pole Comedy category was swept away by Candice J Prior, who made the audience laugh out loud as she battled the elements to be rescued from a deserted island.
The winner for Pole Art A was Jasmine Mah, who lit up the stage as Pele, the goddess of Fire in an explosive performance.
Finally, the 2019 Pole Art B winner was NaRae Lee, who astounded the audience with her powerful performance that gained her an entry into Spinning with the Stars, an annual charity event that raises money for the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia.
