Recently in the pole dancing community, there have been many stories, videos and pictures of injuries relating to unsafe teaching/training methods. I have read every cat and dog's comments on social media regarding the subject and finally feel like putting in my two cents. Pole dancing is difficult. It requires extreme levels of strength and...
