Came across this spot-on article written by pole champion, Irmingard Mayer, and I wanted to share it below.
Pole is being performed by men, women, and children. The more people understand what it’s about, the less this form will be stigmatized. I don’t hide my passion for pole. Why? Because there is simply nothing shameful about it! I refuse to let people who don’t understand pole shame me into the shadows. I’m proud of what my body can do, and I’m a part of a worldwide community of bad ass dancers. Join me!
