Over ten years ago I started Pole Dance in a dodgy Parisian strip club (with the now famous Marion Crampe as my teacher). It felt very naughty and underground, and not really socially acceptable. But I was hooked immediately. When I moved away from Paris I had to stop Pole Dancing for a while because these studios were not really common at the time. However once I started again, I discovered that Pole Dance had evolved to a full athletic sport. It took a lot of inspiration from gymnastics and circus arts, and had become much more professional. It now even has it’s own international association, is recognized internationally and on the way to becoming an Olympic sport. I also took on Aerial Hoop (Aerial Lyra) and Aerial Silks which are two circus arts also often taught in Pole Dance Studios.
So here are my top reasons why you should try Pole Dancing and Aerial Fitness.
