LA is hosting The International Pole Convention of 2012 from Friday, June 22nd to Sunday, June 24th, at The Los Angeles Airport Marriott, 5855 West Century Blvd, Los Angeles, California 90045. There are three types of passes offered: full access ($139), limited access ($99), and the Showcase to the Stars ONLY ticket ($40). There is no single-day entry pass, much to my disappointment – with PPC having taken up a huge chunk of my resources (still recovering), I can’t afford much in the way of extras when it comes to pole right now. Class is my priority, so it isn’t currently in my budget to be able to swing even the limited pass…BUT, I will be volunteering on Saturday! I’m excited to have the opportunity to help out, as well as the chance to walk around and explore the convention on my breaks! Most of the workshops with the pole stars are sold out – and they’re quite expensive – but there are some free/less expensive workshops available throughout the weekend, if you want to check them out! There are also certification programs available! I plan on taking some pics and updating about my experiences – and, yes, I still owe the PPC post about what it took to compete – I’m stubbornly waiting for my professional photos and video before I update (I’m also IMPATIENTLY waiting for them).
Also, Living Social has a great deal on tickets to Cirque du Soleil’s IRIS – nearly half off! Get them before the sale ends/they sell out! https://www.livingsocial.com/deals/371458?ref=conf-jp&rpi=64888830 I’m looking forward to going – with my new found admiration of silks and lyra, I am finding that most circus/acrobatic stuff fascinates me. 🙂
