Should Pole Fitness Be Banned?

Gemma Parry | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Gemma Parry

Attempting to link pole fitness classes and societies with violence against women is both completely wrong and very dangerous. To blame violence against women by men on the actions of these women who choose to partake in pole fitness classes is effectively buying into the rape culture of passing blame onto women.

It doesn't matter who you are or where you come from in life, if you want something and are willing to work hard enough, nothing is impossible. The alternative is working the rest of your life doing something which you don't enjoy.

As global monoculture erodes cultural diversity, the diversity of tribal festivals and rituals is a reminder that humans have different insights, different priorities, and choose other - successful - ways of living. For many tribes, life is lived through ritual.

Riccardo Buscarini - A Star Is Born

Bonnie Greer

'Athletes' gave me the same feeling that I experienced decades ago when I first saw 2001, a film that no one could have been prepared for. This dance piece has the same feeling of coming to grips with mortality, fragility, of time passing, and infinity. Like Stanley Kubrick, you can feel this choreographer's utter dedication, his complete self-belief.

This week was the last dance rehearsal before I take to the main stage of the Lowry in Manchester, captivating an audience of 2,000 with my balletic grace and elegant style. Just kidding, it's actually an audience of 100 in the venue's smallest studio and I'll be dancing with an umbrella.

Gyte condemns Stella Creasy thus for stating that violence is not limited to gender, that it affects society as a whole: "Really Stella? Really?" Yes, really Natalie, really. Violence is a societal issue. And so long as we keep pretending that it isn't, nothing is going to change.

Anyone for High Tease?

If anyone wants to get into this industry, I'd tell them to work on their striptease - no-one likes a messy performer. There will undoubtedly be wardrobe malfunctions, we all have them, but the more you practice things like corset removal, the more you'll be able to pretend it's all part of the act!

All the writers and musicians I adore were all dead by the time arrived on Earth. I'm not saying I'm into dead people, life just panned out that way. But when Larry Hagman died on 23 November, I was genuinely sad because JR from Dallas used to babysit me when I was a kid.
