It is fitting to see this event in Vegas where pole dancing is often seen simply as adult entertainment. Far from it, Pole Art requires tremendous fitness, strength, flexibility, body control, and artistry. Pole Dance as a whole is gaining much prominence around the world as a serious form of competitive sports worthy of the Olympics, not unlike Gymnastics and Ribbon Dance.
