The Gateway Pole Dance Competition, 2013 (NSFW)

The Gateway Pole Dance Competition was held at Koken Art Factory (2500 Ohio Ave.) on Saturday, March 2, 2013. The competition had three divisions with the winner of the Elite division moving on to the National competition. "Pole Dancing has evolved into an amazingly diverse acrobatic art form in recent years and this event will celebrate that." Winner Amber Cahill now goes onto the Midwest Elite Performer of the Year 2013. Photos by Steve Truesdell for the Riverfront Times.
