Nell Ann, from Domestic Indecision, contacted me last week with the following story about a proposed Olympic sport for London 2012...Pole Dancing!
Yep, it seems that the pole dancers of the world want their shot at the gold and are looking to Vertical Dance, a pole dancing school, to make it a reality. The company contends that pole dancing has come out of the strip club and is an accepted form of exercise at this point and they plan to lobby for it's inclusion at the 2012 Olympics. They compare their sport to skateboarding, once shunned and now widely accepted.
Question: Does the history of pole dancing affect the way you will always view it? Would you want your teen daughter to take a pole dancing class at, say, the YMCA? Will it ever separate itself from it's raunchy strip club beginnings?
Thoughts? Let's hear some Feedback this Friday...
