Pole dance is a form of acrobatics and dance that is performed on a vertical pole. This performance art form is performed not just as sexy dancing in gentleman’s clubs, but also as a mainstream form of exercise in gyms and specialist dance studios. Pole dancing is enjoyed by people of all ages; while many people who execute this dance and acrobatic style are adults, this does not prevent younger children from learning and competing. Pole dancing competitions are held in nations all over the world for both amateur and professional pole dancers.

Pole dancing necessitates a high level of muscular endurance, coordination, and sensuality. Exotic dancers’ pole routines today range from basic spins and striptease in smaller clubs to athletic maneuvers like climbs and body inversions in the “stage heavy” clubs of Las Vegas and Miami. Remy Redd, a dancer at the King of Diamonds, is famed for hanging from the ceiling after turning herself upside down into a split. Pole dancing needs a great deal of strength and flexibility. To achieve proficiency, you’ll need upper-body and core strength, as well as proper instruction and rigorous training. Pole dancing fitness competition organisers have been attempting to modify people’s perceptions of pole dance to include pole fitness as a non-sexual style of dance and acrobatics since the mid-2000s, and are attempting to get pole into the Olympics as pole sports.

Pole dancing is a type of exercise that may be utilized for both aerobic and anaerobic fitness. Recognized schools and credentials are becoming the norm.

The usage of poles for sports and fitness may be traced back at least 800 years to the traditional Indian sport of mallakhamb, which uses a hardwood pole with a diameter larger than a current standard pole to test endurance and strength. The Chinese pole, which dates back to the 12th century, consists of two poles on which men perform “gravity defying tricks” by leaping from pole to pole at a height of about twenty feet.


Pole dancing had its origins in the 1890s “Little Egypt” traveling sideshows, which included sensuous “Kouta Kouta” or “Hoochie Coochie” belly dances, largely performed by Ghawazi dancers who were making their first appearance in America. The dancers, clad in short skirts and elaborately decked with jewelry, made quite a commotion in an era when women dressed modestly in corsets. Dancers invented pole in the 1920s by sensually gyrating on wooden tent poles to entice people.

With Elvis Presley’s “Jailhouse Rock” movie and video in 1957, the pole was introduced to a wider audience during the rock and roll invasion of the 1950s. Presley’s famous gyrating hips were featured in the video, as well as numerous pole slides, grinds, and twirls. Pole dancing eventually made its way from tents to bars, where it was blended with burlesque dance. Pole dancing, initially in Canada and subsequently in the United States, has blended athletic feats such as climbs, spins, and inversions into striptease shows since the 1980s. Fawnia Mondey, a Canadian who migrated to Las Vegas, began teaching pole dancing as an art form in the 1990s. She is credited with becoming the first pole dance instructor in the world. Pole dancing lessons have grown in popularity as a leisure and competitive activity, with participants participating in a range of sexual, non-sexual, and athletic contexts.

The International Pole Sports Federation and K.T. Coates, a well-known competitive pole dancer, are currently promoting a campaign to include competitive pole dance in the Olympics, and an application to the International Olympic Committee to recognize pole as a sport was submitted in September 2016. The World Pole Sport Championship, the U.S. Pole Federation Championship, Pole Art, Miss Pole Dance America, and the International Pole Masters Cup Championship are just a few of the contests available.
