Pole dancing does not have a strict set of guidelines for movement the way ballet or other formal arts do. This makes it highly accessible to a vast number of women and men, who can choose to make it whatever they please.
I’ve been researching different styles of dance and dance fitness as I am very keen on creative expression. I follow a blog by the name of The X-Pole Blog as well as a few others on the topic of Pole Dance and I found this article Empowerment in Pole to be a great read because of the truth behind it.
Be sure to scroll around the site, it has a lot of great posts!
