The COVID-19 pandemic had us stuck in our homes for quite some time. For some people who had to miss going to the gym, they improvised and worked out at home. Some who haven’t even thought of exercising their whole lives started to get health-conscious and be physically fit, taking advantage of Youtube workout videos.
Now that the restrictions have been lifted and we’re slowly getting back on track with our lives, the thirst for new experiences is palpable. More and more Gen Zers are starting their own businesses, the number of adults quitting their day jobs to become freelancers is at an all-time high, people are valuing their leisure time now more than ever and are trying out unique experiences, workout routines, and exercises.
If you want to cross something off of your bucket list, looking to spice up your exercises, trying out a new art form, or just want to do something NEW in general, pole dancing might just be the most exciting and at the same time beneficial choice for you.
The recent years have seen a rise in women (and men) of different ages and walks of life enrolling in pole dancing lessons and even staying consistent with it. Pop culture, mainstream, and social media normalizing strip and pole dancing have also attributed to that.
There’s a ton of benefits to pole dancing but here are the best and maybe the only reasons why you need to dash to the nearest dance studios in Dallas right now:
It IS a sport.
No, pole dancing is not only about sensually gyrating against a pole. As a matter of fact, it is quite taken more and more seriously since 2006, and domestic and international competitions of all types— ranging from stripper competitions to amateur pole dancing to international pole sporting events have taken place all around the world. Although we immediately associate pole dancing with stripping and the nightlife, it’s about time we start seeing it in a more professional way, too.
It IS for straight men, too.
We are now living in a time where women can do manly stuff and men can do feminine stuff and they don’t get ridiculed for it. Did you know that India has a traditional sport for men in which they perform gymnastics, yoga, and wrestling grips on the top of a pole? It’s called the Pole Mallakhamb and it’s been around since the 19th century. Pole sporting events also have their males division. Lately, straight men who are aiming to strengthen their upper body are taking up pole dancing lessons as this exercise usually requires dancers to support their own weight using just one arm. In addition to that, pole dancing has been proven to tone not only the thighs and legs but also the core. So, as a straight man who is up for a refreshing experience while staying fit, why not try it?
High-quality and properly-installed poles can hold up to 440 pounds of weight
Ah, the million-dollar question, “Will the pole collapse because I’m heavy?”
As the market offers many types of poles such as removable, portable, permanent, semi-permanent, and the like, it is safe to say that it will not be advisable for beginner pole dancers to buy a stripper pole from Amazon out of the blue and install it in their houses all by themselves without doing their research first.
There are a number of factors to consider such as your ceiling texture and height, whether your landlord will agree to have the installation, how frequently you are going to use it, and so on.
After you have learned the basics and have built your confidence, you can then practice your stripper pole moves in the comfort of your own home. As long as you get the experts to do the installation then… there you go, express yourself, embrace your sexuality and inner god or goddess, and strip dance to your heart’s content!
If you’re also looking to add some spice to your parties in Dallas, you can opt to have a stripper dance pole installed when you book for one (or two) of our Dallas party buses. What better way to show off your newly-learned pole moves than to do it at your own party, right?
