Slay the Stage is an independently produced show, held quarterly, created to give the North Texas artist-athletes, in the areas of pole, aerial, burlesque and circus, a united outlet to showcase their passion and talent while building performance experience. This show is for everyBODY. Our goal is to create a platform for performers, beginner to professional, to have a creative outlet to share their talents and build their portfolio while inspiring the next generation of performers. 



We are pleased to offer a professional practice stage for performers and aspiring performers to showcase their talent, build their performer portfolio/resume and educate them on performance and character development. We celebrate diversity in movement, body, style and level by showcasing and appreciating each performer where they are at now. 


We recognized that the local studios are the heart and soul of our community. We want to support the hard work that studios put in to keep their doors open, students safe and our industry growing. We serve by connecting and uniting our North Texas pole, aerial, circus, burlesque and dance community by bringing together our local students, instructors, studios and independent artists.


Through the Slay the Stage show, we hope to entertain the cirque-curious that want to experience and learn more about our artistic sport and hopefully inspire the next wave of aerialists.


We got our start as a way to help DFW pole competitors practice for PSO and get rid of performance anxiety and jitters. Little did we know it would evolve into a full community show!
