Changing from instructor to amateur

In specific circumstances we may consider allowing past instructors to drop down to amateur level. Change of pole career, for example quitting teaching pole dance, may qualify you to drop to the amateur categories. We will not allow high level, full time instructors, who have competed professionally to drop to an amateur category at any time. However, those have never competed at the final of a professional, semi-professional or instructor competition and have not taught pole in any capacity in the last 2 years, will be considered. Please email us with your specific circumstances before entering.
