Pole Dancing School for KIDS [VIDEO]



Little girls often take up cheerleading, dance and gymnastics, but would you let your six-year-old take pole dancing classes? A studio in the UK is under fire for offering pole dancing classes to girls under the age of 13.  

The website for the LaKita Dance Academy boasts that one of their 12-year-old students placed third in last year's world pole dancing championship and shows the video of a 6-year-old performing in competition to the song "Pound the Alam" by Nicki Minaj.  

Critics worry that young girls performing sexualized dances in skimpy outfits with full-makeup will be left open for exploitation. But Lauren Kenealy , who runs the classes, told The Sun: 'It is just like gymnastics but using a different piece of apparatus. It's got nothing to do with being sexual.'
