This event is set to take place at the Thornbury Theatre in Melbourne on Saturday, July 6th, 2024, and it comes as the younger sibling to the infamous Hardcore Pole Dancing Championships, which is proudly celebrating 10 years in 2024.

A Decade of Excellence: Hardcore Pole Dancing Championships!

In 2014, Hardcore Pole Dancing Championships emerged onto the scene, setting a new standard for pole dancing competitions around Australia. Over the past ten years, this championship has witnessed incredible performances, ground breaking routines, and the rise of some of the most phenomenal pole dancers in the industry. As Hardcore Pole Dancing Championships celebrates its remarkable journey and success, the birth of Hardcore Up and Coming signifies a new chapter in the Hardcore legacy.

Two Explosive Divisions:


Division 1 - Fresh Face Amateurs

Are you ready to take your first steps into the spotlight? The New Face Amateurs Division is the perfect stage for those who are new to the competition scene. To be eligible, participants must not have previously competed or won any national graded amateur, semi-professional, or professional pole competition. It's your chance to make a splash, showcase your potential, and be part of the next generation of pole dance stars. 

Division 2 – Dance                                                                                                                             

For those who prefer the artistry of dance over the complexity of tricks, the Dance Division is tailored just for you. Less focus on pole tricks and more emphasis on creative and expressive dance movements. It's a chance to explore the beauty of choreography and captivate the audience with your unique dance style.
