The Land of Lakes Pole Dance Festival is HERE!

Despite the negative stigma pole dance gets from the media, this movement art has evolved to become a powerful tool for self-esteem and body positivity.

Feel empowered and inspired. Discover a new way to connect with yourself and a supportive community at the Land of Lakes Pole Dance Festival.

Join us in this celebration of the beauty and power of pole dance. Take a beginner or advanced workshop, attend an informative seminar, visit the vendors, watch the freestyles and performances, and settle in to experience the Minnesota Pole Competitions live.
