Pole Show LA Takes Over the House of Blues for Special Pole Expo 2017 Performance

Pole Show LA Takes Over the House of Blues for
Special Pole Expo 2017 Performance

Critically acclaimed Pole Show LA (PSLA) is hitting the House of Blues stage inside the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino on Friday, Sept. 8, marking its third year performing in Las Vegas during the Pole Expo.

“As the owner of BeSpun and teaching movement to both amateur and professional dancers, I wanted Pole Show LA to celebrate body empowerment with both male and female performers,” said Leigh Ann Reilly, PSLA creator. “It’s the perfect culmination of Victoria’s Secret meets Cirque du Soleil showcasing the strength and artistry of our performers set to today’s top hits.”

World-renowned pole dancers Bendy Kate, Kira Niore, Evgeny Grisholv, Natasha Wang, Carly Child, Lawrance Hilsom, Nicholas Casanova, Brandon Grimm, Elena Anishchenko, Maddie Sparkle and Michelle Shimmy, in addition to supporting professional dancers and aerialists, will entice audiences with their unique style through choreographed productions showcasing their athleticism and sex appeal.

PSLA is the creative vision of Reilly, a former Las Vegas showgirl, pioneer of the pole
dance movement and owner of Los Angeles’ premier pole dance studio, BeSpun, which opened in 2006. After the success of BeSpun and training some of the world’s most talented pole dancers, Reilly created Pole Show LA in 2007 as a way to showcase her students’ talents. Since then, the show has evolved into a full-scale choreographed production starring some of the best professional dancers in the world, becoming an annual event in Las Vegas in addition to regular performances in Southern California. Accolades include Pole World News Awards “Spirit of Excellence Industry” 2015, “Choreographer of the Year” 2015, Pole World News Awards “Showcase of the Year” 2016 and Pole Industry “Revolutionary” 2016.

Doors open at 7 p.m. with the show promptly starting at 8 p.m. The show is for guests 18 years and older. Tickets currently start at $45, available at PoleShowLa.com, but will increase closer to the show.

VIP packages include:
VIP table ($115 per person): bottle service with preferred seating
VIP service with dinner or champagne ($140 per person): Choose from dinner (includes salad and entree), or bottle of champagne and strawberries, with both options featuring cocktail service throughout the show.
