Dancing Divas will showcase art of pole dancing

A dozen women from Dancing Divas studios in Mount Pleasant will be showing their audience a new side to pole dancing at Bayworld tomorrow night in a bid to remove the “stripper” stereotype associated with the art.

The group will be swinging through a range of moves with names like “scorpion”, “butterfly” and “lay-back” to show off the technique and fitness associated with a very different form of pole dancing.

“Getting on a pole at Dancing Divas is not what you would find at Candy’s Revue Bar but rather strength, fitness, toning and core training,” studio owner and personal trainer Tharene Windsor says, referring to the prevailing pole dancing stereotype.

“We’ve got dancing and basic routines and we’ll have some men from our neighbouring dojo here at Kings Court to do a few karate moves on the pole and also have a guest appearance from the 2011 Miss Pole Dance South Africa winner Vanessa Clack to demonstrate some moves.”
