A style of dancing in which the dancer uses a vertical pole fixed to the ground and ceiling as part of their dance routine, often by twirling and swinging around it. Though traditionally performed as erotic entertainment while nude or partially clothed, such dancing is also done for fitness or fun. I know my parents wouldn't have approved if they knew I got a job pole dancing to pay for college, so I just told them I was waiting tables. I really love pole dancing. It's a great workout, and it lets me express myself in really liberating ways.
