Yes, I put dancing in scare quotes, because it doesn’t seem anymore like dancing than, say, working on the balance beam seems like dancing. There are a couple of things in common, like extension, balance, and athleticism, and a couple of things not much in common, like going with the music.
Also, why just women? (I mean as pole artists, not as strippers.) These guys seem quite masculine, and to them it’s apparently just another gymnastics thing. Also they’re really good.
I can see why pole dancers=strippers if they take their clothes off. But the guys in the aforementioned video aren’t wearing much either, and nobody calls them strippers.
