Creative inspiration

A diverse range of dancers were chosen to perform at Encore!. It was an opportunity for dancers to be creative and entertain in a way that is usually not possible in competitions or on stage. This freedom of creativity opened the doors for a new style of pole dance performance, and provided paid opportunities for the Australian pole dance community.

Here’s a look back at some history that reflects the diversity and creativity of the Encore! Sydney Pole Show.

Zara – used the stage to make a political statement in the very first Encore
Andrea – took pole in a new direction with her powerful “Westwood” piece which she later performed for a professional filming
Chilli – at 7 years old, our first youth performer

Train – a group act featuring an all-star lineup of Victorian professional polers
David Helman – stunned us with his emotive performance using a cinematic backdrop and sign language



We’ve laughed till we cried at some of our comedic performances.

And the rest…

Roller skates, snakes, magic, burlesque, and fire eating, are just a few extra skills that our performers have brought to their shows.
