If you believe everything you read in the newspaper and see on TV, the newest exercise “craze” is pole dancing. Never mind how long its been around. However, several media have reported recently an increase in the number of gyms offering classes on pole dancing and participants say they get quite a workout. Actress Sheila Kelley’s studio in Los Angeles has 20 classes â€“ all for women only (they wouldn’t even let CBS correspondent Peter Van Sant watch a class while doing his report). If you want to preview some information before checking it out in person, The People’s Media Company has posted a sort of Pole Dance 101 explaining the moves and The Vertical Dance Pole Fitness School in London has posted a video previewing the DVD they sell and cautioning about safety measures new participants should take.
