Hollywood will be in Renton on Saturday

By Winter Dorval - Staff Reporter



Misfits in Motion bring their pole-dancing pyrotechnics to Hollywood in their new show at the Renton Civic Theatre.

The theme for this show is Hollywood.

 "After doing pole for about a year, I got the idea to produce a pole show.  I wanted to show the world what a beautiful sport it is," said Heather Slye, producer of Misfits in Motion.

Misfits in Motion started in 2016. 

 "Pole dancing is still very much associated with the 'clubs'.  I wanted to show the beauty, the athleticism, and the art of pole," Slye said.

The shows include dancers that do local pole, Lyra, AcroYoga and other forms of areal art.

"I was listening to Simple Minds 'Don't You Forget About Me'.  That song always reminds me of 'The Breakfast Club'," said Slye.

This inspired her to theme the upcoming show around movie tracks.

"When I realized the show would be the day before The Academy Awards, I thought I had to do it," she said.

To be included, each song in the show has to have been on a movie soundtrack.

With this show, Misfits in Motion hopes to "showcase amazing local talent in the aerial artist community and give the audience an amazing fun night," said Slye.

This will be Misfits in Motion's third performance at the Renton Civic Theatre.

People who attend this performance "will see a large variety of the Pole and Aerial artists and apparatuses.  We will have a variety of levels as well.  The audience is encouraged to cheer. It's fun for everyone," said Slye.

The upcoming show will be on March 3 at 8 p.m. 

The show is for "anyone who is curious about pole, aerial silks, Lyra, pole silks or who just likes to watch live dance performances," Slye said.

Some of the content is a little on the adult side, so they let parents decide what age they think is appropriate, she said.

 "We are so excited to share this art form with world. We hope people will come check it out and fall in love with it as we have," said Slye.

The theme for the next show, on Nov. 11, is still unannounced.

The address for the Renton Civic Theatre is 507 S. Third St., Renton.

Tickets will be $35.
