Is pole dancing now socially acceptable?

Attitudes  towards  pole  dancing  is  changing  and  it  is  now  regarded  as  an  art  rather  than  a  sleazy  activity.  With  talent  shows  such  as  Britain’s  got  talent  and  Got  to  Dance  showcasing  just  how  beautiful  it  can  look,  the  stigma  of  going  to  pole  dancing  classes  has  almost  evaporated.

“I  have  found  that  a  lot  more  women  have  been  joining  pole  fit  classes.  A  lot  of  them  have  said  they  have  been  interested  for  a  long  time  but  were  too  embarrassed  to  come  along.  People  don’t  realise  how  long  it  takes  to  become  a  professional  pole  dancer  and  just  how  hard  it  is  until  they  give  it  a  go.” - Faye Chatterley,  pole  fitness  instructor.

On  the  other  end  of  the  spectrum,  attitudes  have  also  improved  to  women  that  work  as  exotic  dancers  in  gentlemen’s  clubs.  

“I’ve been dancing for  about  seven  years. I  used  to  get  a  lot  of  stick  about  it  and  called  all  the  names  under  the  sun.  It’s  different  now,  I  even  get  a  lot  of  women  coming  into  the  club  with  their  partners.  I  think  that  people  realise  that  it’s  just  a  job - it’s  not  much  different  to  dancing  in  a  musical  or  having  an  office  job.” - Frankie Jennings, Pole  dancer.

Pole  dancing  is  a  misunderstood  and  stunning  form  of  dance. It  works  on  every  part  of  your  body  while  improving  your  strength.  It  seems  that  as  society  is  changing  so  are  the  stereotypes  that  have  been  overshadowing  it.  Maybe  sometime  soon  it  will  be  on  par  with  all  the  other  performing  arts.
