Christmas is coming early this year for me. In fact, it’s coming this weekend. I’ve been a pretty good boy so far this year so my girlfriend is taking me to the 2019 US Pole Dance Championship at Peter Jay Sharp Theatre’s Symphony Space, hosted by the US Pole Dance® Federation (USPDF).
While your first thoughts about pole dancing might be of a strip club (and, of course, you are right), the art of pole dancing is so much more. It is a serious all-body fitness workout that has become popular in gyms across the country and around the world. Here in NYC it’s sometimes hard to even get in a class at Body and Pole or NY Pole Dancing since they’re so popular. But don’t worry, as there are many other gyms that offer Pole Fitness Classes.
If you’re a Socially Superlative follower you may have read my review of last year’s Pole Dance Championship. Sexy is a tame word to describe how hot these performers were. Smoking hot babes doing crazy gravity defying sh*t is more like it! The core strength involved to do this stuff is unbelievable. Makes me ashamed to eat the cookie I’m about to… well, just one more.
For the best show around town and ultimate weekend fiesta better come check-out the fantastic ladies at the 2019 US Pole Dance Championship. Just bring lots of water: it is HOT IN THERE!
