Description or Abstract
This audio documentary sheds light on what is pole fitness, how pole came to Egypt, and how girls in Egypt are breaking the stigma of pole practices being linked to stripping. Pole practices are misunderstood all around the world. However, here in Egypt, since pole practices and pole studios are new to the community, they face more resistance than they would abroad. Pole fitness is unfortunately associated with stripping, a misconception that belittles pole fitness and the amount of effort trainees put into it. This audio documentary sheds light on what is pole fitness, how pole came to Egypt, and how girls in Egypt are breaking the stigma of pole practices being linked to stripping.
