Children, some as young a five-years-old, are reportedly being taught pole dancing during a physical education class in Naberezhnye Chelny, Russia.
The Daily Mail reports that a video of the class shows a young girl, Kira Pronina, being taught how to spin around a pole, a technique widely used by strippers.
The girl’s mother, Aleksandra Pronina, boasted of her daughter’s new talent:
Here [my daughter Kira] is developing a six-pack and her arms have become very strong. No gym can give you a workout like pole dancing. All muscles are engaged here.
There has been outrage from some parents, but the Daily Mail reports that “in the city of Kazan, pole dancing competitions among children have gone on for years.”
