For years and years, nobody considered pole dancing to be a form of exercise or something which could help you shed weight. In fact, we mostly watched movies where pole dancing was always associated with strip clubs and night dancers etc. However, recently this dance form has picked up as a sport, what with Jacqueline Fernandez and Kriti Kharbanda making it seem like so much fun with their videos on Instagram. It’s a great way to burn calories and it will also help boost your confidence! So ladies, why don’t you give pole dancing a try this year?
