MUSIC & PROPS

  • Show length for AMATEUR DIVISION is 3 minutes and OPEN DIVISION is 3.5 minutes
  • Any item(s) that are not attached to the performer for the entirety of the performance is considered a prop and must be included in your Production Form.  Any props larger than a chair will require approval.  All props must be able to be put on and taken off the stage by 2 people within 30 seconds.
  • Maximum of 2 human props only.  There is no limit on how long the human props are on stage.  They can touch the pole, but not perform any movements where they have both feet off the ground while holding the pole. Eg: climb, mount, trick.   The focus of using a human prop is that they add to your show without overshadowing you. 
  • Heels are optional. All shoes are accepted including any length of boots.
  • No nudity or pasties
  • Anything you wish to use that will leave a mess on the stage must be approved by the producers.  Eg:  confetti, petals, fake money.  No large confetti canons will be approved, or glitter.
