Dance Teacher Offers Pole-Dancing Class For Young Kids! Apocalypse Now?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A dance studio instructor in western Canada says the pole-dancing class she intends to provide children is a healthy workout and has nothing to do with sex.

While X-rated images of exotic dancers might come to mind when mention is made of pole-dancing, Kristy Craig of Duncan`s Twisted Grip Dance and Fitness Studio on Vancouver Island says anyone thinking along that line is way off base, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Thursday."

Pole-dancing and sex go together like butter and popcorn, hamburger and fries and prostitutes and venereal diseases.

If my next-door neighbor tells me that she installed a stripper pole in her bedroom, I`m not going to think "Gee, she must like to work out." I`m going to say to myself, "She must be a real freak, I can`t wait until her husband goes away on a business trip."

Craig says she already has a few kids, including a boy, signed up for her Little Spinners pole-dancing lessons. I don`t think anybody will be surprised if the little girls who sign up for this class turn into clones of Honey Boo Boo Child. As for the boy, he`s going to have issues, as they say.

Nothing sexual about pole-dancing? Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar, but a stripper pole is always a phallic symbol.
