Work It, Emma!

We got a peek of Emma Watson pole dancing in the teaser trailer for “The Bling Ring,” Sofia Coppola’s new movie about the Los Angeles teens, lead by reality star Alexis Neiers, who broke into the homes of celebs like Paris Hilton to steal their fancy toys. We really required more in-depth visuals to truly assess Emma’s pole skills and the Internet has gifted us with a new “Bling Ring” clip today. Good to know if that whole Brown University thing doesn’t work out — or her “Harry Potter” money dries up — Emma Watson’s got a career waiting for her on the pole.

pole dancing

As a girl who defined herself as a ballerina from ages three to 21, I’ve had the argument over whether dancing is a sport or art many times over. I don’t care what any guy friend says: it’s both. Hey, you try and make dancing on your toes look effortless!

An article in Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald raises a whole new argument: is pole dancing art or sport? Casula Powerhouse Art Center in New South Wales thinks neither because t chose not to display a photo series of pole dancer Zahra Stardust in its women in sports exhibition, “Onside.” Photographer Belinda Mason was commissioned by the Liverpool art center to take the photos, which included shots of Brooklyn Jackson, a gridiron player, Melissa Combo, a longboard surf champion and Stardust in her pole dancing outfit, among others.

A Canadian dance studio has announced that they will offer pole dancing classes for children as young as five. You heard that correctly. Pole dancing FOR KIDS. While this may sound totally inappropriate, Kristy Craig of Duncan’s Twisted Grip Dance and Fitness Studio on Vancouver Island insists that there’s nothing untoward about it. “There is nothing provocative. There is nothing sexual about it … It’s pure fitness and strength and fun. I mean kids love climbing trees. They will climb anything.” Keep reading »

Pole Dancing Champ Natasha Wang Skeptical Sport Can Vault Into 2016 Olympics

If the International Pole Sports Federation has its way, pole dancing will be an Olympic sport by 2016. But even some of the sport’s top competitors doubt that will happen.

“My stance has always been that while I support the pole community’s efforts to get pole into the Olympics, I don’t think the general public is ready for the sport yet on such a mainstream/public scale,” said U.S. National Pole Dancing Champion Natasha Wang. Read more…

A spirit animal is supposed to be someone who encapsulates your essence, your soul, your very spirit. When I saw Lulu the Plus Size Pole Dancer, I knew I had found mine. Even though she’s a bigger girl, Lulu took the stage of “America’s Got Talent” in front of millions of viewers and swung herself around the pole oozing confidence. (And I’ve taken a pole dancing class: those moves are haaaard.) The judges did not seem too impressed, so I’m not quite sure she’s got a lot of talent. But Lulu sure has hell has gumption. [E!

How pole-dancing made me love my body. Read More »

We knew that pole dancing had gone mainstream when soccer moms started talking about it, and we all remember when Miley Cyrus took a stab at it during the 2009 Teen Choice Awards. Since then, pole dancing continues to seduce women by the truckload. The latest celebrity to express her love for the pole? Emma Watson, who has supposedly taken up pole dancing on the set of “The Bling Ring” to learn how to dance like a stripper. Even though she never thought she’d like it, a source tells the UK’s Sun newspaper that Emma is “amazed with the results because it has toned her body so well [and] finds it quite liberating.” Our little Hermione is growing up! Read on to hear why more stars love the pole. [The Sun UK]

Deborah Roach, One-Armed Pole Dancer, Wins International Championship

At last week’s International Pole Championship in Hong Kong, Australia’s Deborah Roach out-maneuvered her competitors to win first place in her division — with the aid of only one arm.

The championships focus on “pole art,” which emphasizes the fitness and creativity components of pole routines, the International Business Times reported. Read more…

Male Pole Dancer Wows On “America’s Got Talent”

I have a new favorite contestant on “America’s Got Talent,” one who I think rivals Prince Poppycock in grandeur. His name is Steve Retchless and he is a “pole-fessional.” In other words, he’s a pole dancer. “You don’t usually think of males in pole dancing,” said Howie Mandel after his intro. Steven’s response? “That’s why I’m here.” And yes, he was pretty freaking awesome dancing to Katy Perry’s “E.T.” I even like the way this dude fell. While one judge x-ed him quickly when he dared do a split, I’m so glad Sharon Osbourne and Nick Cannon stood up for him. “Talent is talent. It doesn’t matter if you’re wearing high heels,” said Nick.

Critics Of Toddlers Pole Dancing Are Such A Buzzkill

A pole dancing class for toddlers offered at a dance studio in England is being attacked by critics who say it’s “promoting sexually precocious behavior” in young kids. But I don’t get what everyone is so worked up about. Isn’t climbing up and down and around a stripper pole just another form of exercise? And aren’t we being told every day to make sure our kids exercise so they can be healthy?

It sounds to me like maybe these whiny, fun-hating complainers need to get their head out of the gutter. Read more… Keep reading »
