In the context of long and continuous time-series photometry and after the MOST, CoRoT, KEPLER space missions and large geographic longitude ground--based networks, a new way is offered by the polar location helping to cope with the problem associated with the Earth day--night cycle. In this paper, we present the first long time-series photometry from the heart of Antarctica -Dome Charlie- and we discuss briefly our new results and perspectives on the pulsating stars from Antarctica, especially the connection between temporal hydrodynamic phenomena and cyclic modulations. Finally, we highlight the impact of PAIX -the robotic Antarctica photometer- on the stellar pulsation study.
