Human props may touch the competitor, but not the pole. Judging will be based on the skills and abilities of the competitor only, and not the skills and abilities of the human prop. Human props must have a spectator ticket to the section in order to participate as a prop and must be 18 years of age or older. They are required to sign a waiver of liability before participating in the show.
Human props are allowed to enter and exit the stage during the performance, but may not enter or exit from anywhere other than the sides of the stage (ex. jumping off the front of the stage is not allowed).
A competitor using props without approval is subject to disqualification or point deduction.
