July 29, 2010 Scotland]------A Pole dancing school in Scotland, is offering classes for children as a fitness option.
The school, which is called Up yer Pole, and has been operating since 2002,will soon be offering pole dancing for kids ages 9 to 16, in an effort to help fight childhood obesity.
According to an aritcle by ParentDish, Up Yer Pole website advertises that the classes, which will cost $8 for one hour, will teach exercises using "strength, balance, flexibility and gymnastic based moves in a safe and fun environment."
In other words, children will get to learn all the rudiments of sliding up and down a pole, while losing weight at the same time. What parent wouldn't embrace this wholesome activity with positive benefits!
Children are even allowed to wear sneakers instead of the usual lucid high heels and thongs suited for this kind of activity. Hmmmmm.
Any parents out there thinks this is a perfectly fine, appropriate workout for their child/children?
