Dancing is an art. It is difficult to imagine people can look at it as anything else. What is the difference between the “pole” being horizontal or vertical? An artistic gymnast performs with a parallel pole a routine which is a very difficult Olympic event performed with great accuracy and poise.

Hence in the near future pole dancing will become an Olympic event!
