Kingsclere woman wins pole dancing contest
A KINGSCLERE woman had judges in a spin when she won the Miss Pole Dance UK competition.
Steph Foster, of The Dell, came first in the doubles category, along with her dancing partner Charlotte Robertson, at the competition held in Crawley, Surrey.
Their routine lasted for more than four minutes and included a lift that involved Steph clinging to the pole, supporting the weight of her dancing partner with her legs.
The duo’s pole position means they can take part in an international competition that will take place in February next year.
Twenty-six-year-old Steph said: “We have been together for about a year, so we had only done one competition before in which we came second, but this was by far the biggest competition we have entered, and to win it was amazing.
“Unfortunately for us, the international competition is also being held in Crawley. It has been in Brazil and Switzerland before and we were hoping for somewhere exotic, but it’s in Crawley. But at least people can come and watch us.”
Steph takes dancing classes at the Spin City complex at Greenham, near Newbury, and also designs costumes for events.
In the national competition, she and her Salisbury-based partner wore belly-dancer themed outfits that she had designed.
She got into pole-dancing two years ago, having previously done ground-based dancing.
Steph said: “Everyone who does it, likes it. It’s very hard but super fun.”
