Comox Valley woman Canadian queen of the pole

The Comox Valley's Nadyne Moldowan recently slid her way to the top of the pole dancing championships.

FORMER B.C. CHAMPION Nadyne Moldowan has added a Canadian pole fitness championship to her resumé.

It requires technique, artistry and flexibility, and Comox Valley’s Nadyne Moldowan recently slid her way to the top of the pole dancing championships.

Moldowan, owns Femme Natale’s Pole Fitness in the Comox Valley, and returned earlier this month from earning top spot in the professional category at the 2013 Canadian Pole Fitness Championship in Ontario.

“I was pretty excited. My mom and six of my aunts were there and I was proud to have them,” explained Moldowan. “Now it opens doors; I can teach all over Canada.”

Moldowan noted that previous to the national competition, she won the provincial championship last year which guaranteed her a spot in this years’ championship.

Her first pole competition was in 2011, and in addition to owning her own studio, the sport has taken her around the globe.

“I went to the world championship in London in July, and a pole expo last month in Vegas,” she added.

At the championship, Moldowan explained there were between 70 to 100 other competitors in a variety of categories including doubles, men and pros.

She performed in front of six judges, with groups of two judges assigned to technique, artistry and flexibility, assigning competitors a score out of 140.

Moldowan received a score of 137.

She is looking forward to next year where she is planning to compete in both February and July, along with teaching at the Las Vegas Expo from which she received an invitation this year.
