Pole Dancing Isn’t Just for Strippers


I think most Americans view Pole Dancing as a somewhat “naughty” and “sexual” form of exercise.  After taking my first Intro to Pole Dancing class yesterday, I have to say it’s a good way to gain upper body strength and learn to be comfortable with your inner seductress.  I learned all types of filler moves…the tic toc, the snake, and others I can’t remember the names of; along with a couple of simple spins, the “fireman” and a variation of it where you point one of your legs, instead of having it against the pole.

As you can see from this photo one of the instructors/owner took of me after class, I’m not looking real “sexy” yet!  I think it’s because of the shoes.  You can see one of the teachers in the back mirror with stilettos on.  Of the four women in the room, I was the only one without high heels on.  Perhaps for the next class!

  3. I have friends who do pole. Not for the sexiness of it, but for the exercise. The upper body strength and the legs are increased greatly doing it – as are the bruises lol

    It is a good thing to take up. There is also a football (soccer) team that are doing it to keep their muscles toned
