The US Pole Dance Championships 2010 prove the athletic ability necessary to be a pole dancer. I feel you should watch this video, even if it is not for the reason of admiring fantastic athleticism.
These women must be gymnasts. They hold themselves up in every which way; it is incredible. The US Pole Dance Championships 2010 feature the best of the best. Take a look--it is pretty crazy stuff!
Implications - Upon viewing the video, you may reconsider the way you view strippers. You'll see just how athletic and hard these females work on the pole. If these girls aren't doing it for the money, they must be doing it for the workout.
