Fantastic! Polaris: A Contemporary Pole Dance Company Presents Poleitico: A Pole Show on Politics at The Den Theatre (November 8, 2017)

Poleitico is a dance show that explores issues such as gay rights, mental health, and climate change through pole dancing. November 8th was specifically chosen as it is the one year anniversary of Trump’s election. The dancing is very impressive and athletic and is met with thunderous applause by the audience. They make it look easy climbing up to the ceiling and spinning around. Also, the music chosen for the performances is fantastic.
