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.
