It takes a special kind of skill to do the work behind the scenes, creating the routines we all love. Maria Cossia recently established Evolve Fitness and Pole and has not only won many titles of her own AND choreographed a spectacular showcase for our MPDQ opening act this year – but she has also created a great number of award-winning performances for students and competitors over the years. Taking a variety of people on stage, making them all look fabulous and selling to their strengths is no easy task, and there’s no doubt this award is well deserved. Congratulations Maria! ✨

✨Queensland’s first pole dance industry awards were established in 2016 by Pole Vibes founder Natalie TeKanawa and presented at the 10th anniversary of Miss Pole Dance QLD. This year we continue the tradition, recognising the contributions of those who help make our pole industry what it is today…
