Pole Inferno Pole Dance Competition is a fun, inclusive show that draws upon the incredible pole dance talent found throughout New Zealand.


We are looking for entertaining performers to get up on stage and show us their skills. We endeavour to offer something a bit different from other pole competitions run in New Zealand. We will include as many dancers from varied backgrounds and different levels as we can.

Pole fitness students, pole dance teachers, exotic dancers, experienced performers and new performers are all welcome to enter. Doubles pole submissions are welcome and will compete along with solo competitors. We welcome all genders.

In 2024 we will be running four categories:

1. Pole Open category - Theme 1 TBC
2. Pole Open category - Theme 2 TBC
3. Floor & Base Work - Open theme
4. Over 35s Pole category - Open theme

Pole Inferno takes place over two days: Sunday 2nd June and Monday 3rd June (King's Birthday Weekend). Our venue is Calendar Girls in Wellington and is a privately run, ticketed event.

The Pole Room NZ is a Wellington-based pole event that has been running for twelve years focusing on bringing the pole community together for entertaining pole shows featuring pole dancers from around New Zealand. 2024 is the sixth year Pole Inferno has been held.
