Pole dancing classes becoming a popular fitness option

Posted: Updated:

From Joyce Evans

(myFOXPhilly.com) -- College students, professionals, even grandmothers are doing it, but who knew that dance moves associated with strippers would become mainstream?

Women are packing into classes to learn pole dancing, chair dancing, burlesque and other kinds of exotic moves that used to be reserved for scandalous men's only clubs.

Area fitness centers are scrambling to set up classes that offer women a mean workout and some take-home skills.

If you want to learn, you've got to hurry as pole dancing classes at area gyms are filling up quickly. And while men keep trying to join, these classes are for women only, nice try though!

You can watch a video report from FOX 29's Joyce Evans above.
