We register our boys in a variety of extra curricular sports to keep their activity levels up, foster a sense of community for us by meeting other families in our neighborhood, and at the off-chance we might have a multi million dollar hall of fame all-star on our hands.
We follow the lead of our boys, offering them many choices and then letting them pick. In the past he’s played soccer, done gymnastics, and taken swimming lessons. This fall it’s rock climbing, and swimming.
Your kids might choose karate, hockey, or pole dancing. Yes, I said pole dancing.
After the jump, learn about the class that is teaching children as young as 5 the fine art of spinning around a pole.
Now if you’ve been to a fine adult establishment recently, you know there is a very high level of athleticism involved in holding on to a pole while spinning your legs in a wide V. You could even call it an olympic level of athleticism. There’s no doubt it’s a workout worthy of exhausting your little kidlets, BUT .. the optics are not good.
“My existing students were asking about it for their children. They were saying, My daughter plays on my pole at home all the time, I’d love her to actually learn how to do things property and not hurt herself,'” club owner Kristy Craig told The Province. “I treat it just like gymnastic classes … I don’t teach any of the adult moves.”
Would you register your daughter in a pole dancing class?
