Updated: Apr 19

Hang on to your pole heels and grip aids, Viva Fam, ‘cause have we got a LINE-UP-of-the-year for you!

We’ve eased into 2023 with grace (we thinks lol) and most of all, HOPE.

Last year, we were just game to “return” to normalcy. The themes were “back to the stage” and “the return of xyz”. Well, we’re done being back now and it’s time for full throttle dancing forward!

Whether you’re a student at Viva Vertical or at any other pole dancing schools / aerial arts schools in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, we hope these events serve you in the most exhilarating way possible. After all, coming together in representing our craft, our sport, our art - is the best way to create progressive opportunities for us all.

Right. On to discovering the most exciting Viva Vertical events in Kuala Lumpur this 2023!

Viva Vertical Teacher Training Courses (VVTTC)

Teacher training courses are essential if you want to become an effective teacher. They provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to be successful in class, from communication to the impact created outside of class. The best teacher training courses will provide you with hands-on experience so that you can gain a better understanding of the material and hone your craft in teaching. This is especially important for teachers who are just starting out.

Viva Vertical Teacher Training Courses are back and better! Since our initial launch of courses in 2008, we have been actively making changes and improvements based on the feedback that we have collected over the years. Since the hybrid of online + in-person course in 2021, we have once again updated our Teacher Training Courses for pole and aerial arts.

Our first 2023 intake starts in March with Aerial Hoop Teacher Training Course aaaaaaand a brand new Aerial Hammock Teacher Training Course!

Viva Vertical Collaborates with HANDS PERCUSSION Malaysia

This is HUGE for us! We debut our first production in Taipei, Taiwan in 2011 as part of a national art event, and we have dreamt of our craft being accepted in the arts community here in Malaysia. There has been small steps along the way with previous collaborations in musicals, concerts, and theatre. This time, we are collaborating on the ENTIRE show with HANDS PERCUSSION Malaysia.

WOW. What a moment!

If you aren’t familiar with HANDS PERCUSSION Malaysia, here are snippets of their work that might give you an idea about our excitement. Some of their highlights include performances at The World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos-Klosters, Switzerland, the 27th ASEAN Summit in Kuala Lumpur where President Obama was scheduled to attend, they were invited to represent Malaysia at the 16th International Association of Theatre for Children and Young People (ASSITEJ) World Congress in Adelaide, Australia… For their full story, check out their website

Back to our shows between 14 - 16 July, 2023, we present to you - SAKTI.

“‘Ulek Mayang’ (one of Malaysia’s oldest art forms) and ‘Puteri Saadong’ are treasured traditional Malay folk dances/tales. You fuse VIVA Vertical aerial artists and HANDS Percussion with those tales, and you begin to wonder … what the possibilities are.”

Viva Circus Awards (VCA) : An International Competition

The vision of Viva Circus Awards is to be a platform that welcomes budding artists and seasoned creators to shine through their craft. From “Pole Stars: Amateur Competition” to “Malaysia Pole Championship” to the “Viva Circus Awards” of today, this platform has evolved to hosting multiple disciplines under one giant event! Now that travels have resume, VCA organizing committee opens the doors once again to international competitors within the categories of Pole, Aerial Silks, Aerial Hoop and Open Acts.

This event has consistently been a grand and fun experience for competitors, friends and fans. Not only is this event a great way to see some incredible performances, but it’s also a great way to learn more about circus arts and the versatility of pole theatrics. You just can’t beat watching performances live in-person, the atmosphere of the competition is incredibly inspiring, motivating and you’ll leave feeling pretty non-alcoholically buzzed.

On the 23rd of July 2023, Viva Circus Awards is “Breaking Boundaries”
