Wow!! Now this is a Work-Out
Maybe its because I live in Connecticut. Maybe because I've led a sheltered life. I've never met anyone who does pole dancing as a work-out and so had no idea what it entailed. The only time I was ever exposed to pole dancing was when Demi Moore did it in Striptease.
That's probably why I was so blown away when I saw the first video. I knew that pole dancing has been marketed as a work-out, but I never really understood what it entailed. I always imagined it as being a bunch of women trying to look sexy by shimmying around a pole.
But this woman, Jenyene Butterfly really takes pole dancing to a whole other level--almost akin to gymnastics. Some of the sequences this woman performs in her routine are nothing short of amazing. It takes quite a bit of strength, flexibility and grace to pull them off.
So here's to a new found appreciation to the art and athleticism of pole dancing.
