Pole Dancing Championships

The Aerial Pole Association's championship competition took place over the weekend at Circus Hollywood, with 25 competitors taking the stage. In the Neo or amateur category, Margarita Evans took first, while Sasja Lee won in the pro division. The sport is taking off to such a degree that there's talk of including it in the Olympics. Could some of these women be on their way to Rio? All photos by Drew Barillas.
