Studio owner Kristy Craig, certified fitness and aerobics instructor and member of the Pole Fitness Association, told The Province, “My existing students were asking about it for their children. They were saying, ‘My daughter plays on my pole at home all the time, I’d love her to actually learn how to do things property and not hurt herself.’”
She insists that pole dancing, when treated as a fitness routine, has nothing to do with stripping for money.
“For competitions they actually have rules and regulations that there can be nothing sexual, or any article of clothing removed, and in some you aren’t allowed to wear high heels. The sexuality is being taken out of it. It’s highlighting the gymnastic, athletic and circus acrobatics aspect.”
Plus, if those little girls (and boys) want a future in exotic entertainment, they have a great head start.
