SPIRIT OF THE COMPETITION AND SHOWMANSHIP 
Unleashed is a student competition created to give Pole Divas students the opportunity to challenge themselves, perform on stage, experience the process of creating and performing a show, and have fun! We feel strongly about maintaining this purpose, so we ask for all students to enter the competition with this in mind. As competitors we want you to maintain the spirit of community and understand how important it is to be kind and supportive to one another, and importantly yourselves. The judges’ decision is final and anyone found to be bringing the decision or the competition into disrepute may be deemed unable to compete in future events, as would unsportsmanlike bad behavior in the lead-up to and on the night of the event.

  • $25 video audition fee must be paid at the time of applying 
  • If successful, there is a live competitor fee (approximately $35) 
  • There is also an optional videography and photography package you can purchase (approximately $70)
