United States Pole Dance Federation (USPDF), founded in 2008, was the first organization in the US to host professional pole dancing competitions. Known for bringing high quality competition to the pole community, our events feature world-class athletes who are evaluated by a panel of USPDF-trained and educated judges with extensive backgrounds in gymnastics, fitness, dance, choreography, and aerial work.
Participating in USPDF has proven invaluable to our competitors, many of whom have gone on to perform in elite shows across the country, book international teaching tours, or open studios of their own. In particular, USPDF helped launch the careers of pole superstars Michelle Stanek, Alethea Austin, Karol Helms, Sergia Louise Anderson, Natasha Wang, Jenyne Butterfly, and many others.
The USPDF is proud to be back with a new website, new logo, new Novice Division, and more. Check out the competitor section for all the details you need for your video submission. Thank you everyone for your continued support for the USPDF!
It is arguably the most prestigious competition and these are the best pole dancers in the world.
Its a legacy in our community and there is a prestige and an excitement about it that doesnt exist anywhere else. Just hearing the letters USPDF gets me excited!
My avenue of professional pole started when I moved to Vegas, but it took a leap when I did the USPDF competition.
The USPDF gave me the roots I needed in order to Fly
