Find the answers to frequently asked questions here. If you are still unsure email comps@physipolestudios.com.au

Are human props allowed?
Human props are allowed as long as they do not touch the aerials apparatus.

What shoes are allowed?
This is up to you! You can have bare feet or any shoes that will not damage the aerials equipment.

Can I bring my own aerial apparatus?
Yes you can! There will be your normal studio apparatus available for your heats and varied apparatus available at finals, please advise in your entry form if you would to provide your own or use the studios.

Am I allowed to have my routine filmed or photographed by my family?
Professional photos and videos will be taken at the event but your friends and family are allowed to take their own videos and pictures also.

What tricks am I allowed to put in my routine?
Must be in syllabus for that apparatus in the correct division you are entering, advanced are able to complete any taught tricks. Variations of syllabus tricks will be allowed if they still fit that level of difficulty, if you are unsure please email comps@physipolestudios.com.au

Will other competitors be allowed to have the same song as me?
No duplicates of songs will be accepted for heats this will be first in best dressed so make sure to get your entry in early to secure your song. This is harder to control for finals as not everyone from heats will go through to finals so there may be song duplicates at finals.
If you enter then decide to change your song make sure to email your new submission to comps@physipolestudios.com.au but be aware this could be declined if the song has already been chosen.

Will there be food provided/available?
You are responsible to make sure you have your own food/snacks at heats and finals.

Do I need to organise my own Hair/Make up?
This is your responsibility for heats, you can bring your own but we ask that they leave the venue no later than 30 minutes before doors open to the public. Please confirm with your studio any further time restrictions.
For finals, we may organise a hair and makeup artist for you to utilise at a cost. This will be discussed and organised in a closed Facebook group for final competitors.

What classifies me in the semi-pro division?
This category is for any elite student who has previously placed while competing at an external competition.
There is no timeline or level on when you placed (it may be three years ago in a much lower level to what you are now).
