Welcome to US POLE DANCE FEDERATION

The Sleek, The Strong, The Sexy

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.

USPDF Event Coverage

The United States Pole Dance Federation (USPDF), founded in 2008, was the very first organization in the States to host professional pole dance competitions. USPDF laid the groundwork for every modern competition that came after it and launched the careers of such notables as Michelle Stanek, Alethea Austin, Karol Helms, Sergia Louise Anderson, Natasha Wang, and Jenyne Butterfly. USPDF was inactive for a few years and roared back to life the first weekend in October in New York City’s Symphony Space on the Upper West Side. Wendy Traskos founded USPDF and serves on the USPDF board with her sister Tracy and Brynlyn Loomis. Catalina “Pole Cat” is Wendy’s right hand person, adroitly assisted by a gaggle (or is it a glitter?) of polers from Wendy’s home studio, New York Pole Dancing.
