Is That a Pole in Your Bar, Or Are You Just Happy to See Me?

Listen up, gents, and listen good: Women are taking the pole back. As in stripper pole. That’s right; those buffed, metal pillars are no longer phallusized representations of sexual oppression. Now they’re sources of exercise (Carmen Electra, eat your heart out), self worth (Freud would have a field day), and a celebration of womanhood (wuzzup, Kirstie Alley). So, naturally, everyone wants to get a piece of the pole, and you can too at Pole Dancing 101.

Think of the shindig as a crash course in fit ΄n’ sexy, put together by pole dancing expert Stacey Steele. Sure, Steele’s name may not seem tutorly, but she’s actually a professional trainer, dancer, and instructor who knows a thing or three about staying in shape. Steele claims aerobics like Cardio Strip and Pole 101 helped her drop 50 pounds, and as a result she’s gained a spiritual understanding of herself. (You can see her before and after pics on her website, If it sounds too New Agey for you, think about this: Pole Dancing 101 takes place at the newly opened Crazy 8’s Sports Lounge (4 W. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). So if you’re not interested in flopping around on one type of metal bar, there’s always the other kind. Call 954-523-7159, or visit
