To those of you who ask, what is Pole Dancing exactly? Allow us to share with you our findings and why it is that Simply Delicious Lingerie and Simply Luscious Lingerie is following this new wave to many.
Pole dance is a form of performing art, a combination of dance and gymnastics. It involves dancing and performing acrobatic tricks with a vertical pole and is an increasingly popular form of fitness and dance, practised by many enthusiasts in gyms or dedicated dance studios. A wide range of amateur and professional competitions are held in many countries around the world. We got to learn more about the true meaning of pole dancing and the art of it when Simply Delicious Lingerie owner Michele Savin decided to advertise in their magazine and get involved in selling private dancer poles and apparel for pole dancing.
Before the mid 2000s, pole dance mainly took place in strip clubs, and most people thought that it was something dirty found only in strip joints. No way…not at all. This is going to be something big and it is growing every day. Since then, promoters of pole dance fitness competitions have been trying to change peoples’ perception of pole dance and to promote it as a legitimate form of dance and acrobatics. Pole dance has furthermore been influenced by Chinese pole, a form of acrobatics that is performed in cabaret/circus and stage performances in a non-erotic environment. Pole dance in competitions is increasingly performed in a non-erotic way and is combined with a range of dance styles or gymnastics.
Pole dance requires significant strength, flexibility and endurance. In a strip club setting, pole dance is often performed less gymnastically and striptease, Go-Go,and/or lap dancing is a part of the performance. The pole dancer(s) may simply hold the pole or move around it without performing acrobatic tricks. Proper pole dance involves athletic moves such as climbs, spins, and body inversions. Upper body and core strength are required in order to attain proficiency, and rigorous training is necessary.
Pole dance is now regarded as a recognized form of exercise that women world-wide take part in.

Paige quoted “When you take away the clothes, the car, the make-up, the job, who are you? Does taking all that away make you feel naked? By removing the layers under which we hide, we force ourselves to be exposed. All that is left is the basic element of our being.When I first entered the world of pole dancing, it was simply referred to as pole acrobatics.The outfit meant nothing – heels, no heels, clothes or no clothes. My identification with the pole was one of pure physical strength. I took my armor that I carried with me throughout my life and simply put it on the pole.” READ THE REST OF HER STORY; http://www.verticalartandfitness.com/magazine/ Subscribe now!
