It is also with great pleasure that we invite the winner of the Pole Idol Fan competition, Sheryl Stewart, to join us in Hong Kong for IPC 2015.

“I voted for Carlie because I think she's an amazing pole artist, her performances are executed to perfection, her transitions from move to move are executed effortlessly.
Above all, her positive and passionate attitude has influenced me greatly and inspires me to be work harder to reach my full potential not only in class but in life.
I believe if you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life. And I believe Carlie is living proof of that.”
