Stellar is the Polecats Manila annual student showcase. Every class has a chance to shine on stage and show their friends and loved ones the awesome pole tricks and spins they’ve learned. We practice, put tricks together in a dance, and put on a full program.
Held every July, every Stellar show has also had a theme - from burlesque, to rock music anthems, to circus dreams - we're conquering flight one show at a time! This 2018, we will be performing to the music of pop legends whose collection has crossed barriers - THE BEATLES!
When is it and what are the details?
Stellar: Across the Universe is on Saturday July 21, 2018 at the Meralco Theater. Tickets are at P800 each.
Performers are required to come early, so make sure to block off the whole day!
Why should I join?
In a nutshell? because it's so much fun!
Everyone can join Stellar! Our summer program starts in May and the show is in July. The reason behind the long preparation is we train our students even without a dance background or experience. Stellar is for people who have always wanted to perform but felt that it is too late. (It is never too late really!)
To achieve tricks in class is one thing, but to put them together in a dance with your classmates is a whole other level of fun and fulfillment. You will share a lot of laughter and good times in practice and bond with a group of strong, confident people. Check out #mystellarstory on Instagram and see how much Stellar has changed their lives.
What if I'm a beginner, can I join?
Of course! Everyone is welcome to join! The earlier you decide, the easier it will be to finish your number and perfect all the tricks and spins required.
What are the performances I can join?
As a Stellar performer, you can join 2 performance classes. You can choose either your current pole level class + a dance class or aerial class or 2 aerial classes. Consult your teacher if you're confused :)
What is your schedule for the Stellar season?
