Using various acrobatic techniques, Pole Dancing, a competitive sports discipline besides being a spectacular performance, offers the advantage of letting a person be suspended in the air without having an attachment point from the ceiling.
The pole is supported, is about 45 to 55mm in diameter with a minimum height of about of around 3m, and is fastened to a base firmly attached to the ground. There are also more elaborate solutions such as a pole suspended in the air by a crane, to a set number of poles anchored to a base that rotate on the ground.
Like other acrobatic disciplines, it requires strength, being limber, the skills of a contortionist, balance, and determination.
From spinning at dizzying speed, to the top to bottom drops, to pure hop-hop dance, pole dancing has developed into a form of high art.
