|USPDF REGIONAL COMPETITION WEST COAST 2010|
USPDF WEST COAST COMPETITION 2010 was such an amazing experience.
Hosted by Poletential of Redwood City and organized by co-founders Anna Grundstrom and Wendy Traskos, this event was immaculately organized and an amazing 1st time spectacle for the Bay Area, with pole dance workshops all weekend from the USPDF Pros, Alethea Austin, Jenyne Butterfly, Amber Richard, and Estee Zakar and Climb and Spin founder Kira Lamb. From what I was told by many audience members, some known to me and many not, was that every single competitor blew them away with their displays of gravity defying athleticism and artistry. As a competitor, the whole experience was really phenomenal and I am so happy to have been a part of it.
The 2010 West Coast Champion is Natasha Wang, with 2nd place-Shelly Lamb and 3rd place-Amy Raven who all received Pro-status and are eligible to apply for the Nationals in New York City this coming spring.
