The Vertical Bar

Filed under: Uncategorized — ralphbuttigieg @ 1:16 pm

Oh the horror! Children pole dancing!

CHILDREN as young as seven are pole dancing in a trend that has sparked outrage among family groups.

Pole fitness classes held in Sydney use poles to perform strengthening and flexibility exercises for teens and pre-teens.

But critics have condemned them as “sexualising young children” and risking exploitation by paedophiles.

Pole dancing has spread from strip clubs to Hollywood and beyond, popularised by Tinseltown celebrities such as Kate Hudson, Teri Hatcher and most recently Britney Spears in her latest video clip.

Eleven-year-old Angela, who does up to three classes a week to gain strength after an illness, said she was much fitter……

My suggestion is they should call it vertical bar exercises.
