Our strippers in Budapest are some of the best pole dancers you will ever get the pleasure to watch. However, this is not a new phenomenon. Pole dancing began long ago, over 800 years ago in fact! Let us take you through the history, so you can appreciate this art form in modern times.
There is no actual proof of when pole dancing really started. There are a few theories, which we will explore, then we’ll leave it to you to decide where it all began!
One theory suggests that it started in African tribes, where women used to dance for their potential husbands around a pole. They would demonstrate the act of sexual intercourse as a way of enticing their men. Another theory is that it began in Medieval Europe. In much the same sexy way as the Africans, women of the Middle Ages were thought to use a pole to attract the man of their dreams!
It isn’t all about sex though. Mallakhamb was a form of Indian dance where men would use a pole to perform acrobatics as part of their training. Another possible origin of the dance is Chinese pole climbing, where, in much a similar way to Mallakhamb, men would use two 6-meter high poles to perform and train on.
A dance that is closer to what we see today, the hoochie coochie was a craze that started in the 1920s. When circuses performed during the Great Depression, girls would dance on the poles that supported the stage. They would perform sensual and provocative dances, giving the audience a rather raunchy show back in the day!
The pole dancing continued and really came into its own in the 1950s, when Burlesque dancers took to the pole and made it their own. From that moment on, pole dancing has been synonymous with stripping and sexy dancing.
The oldest pole dancing as part of a striptease show was recorded in 1968 at the Mugwump club in Oregon, USA. From 1980, stripping and lap dancing moves were being incorporated into pole dancing routines and the pole really began to take off. The US and Canada were the first countries to take notice and pole dancing became extremely popular.
In Las Vegas in the 90s, a Canadian woman by the name of Fawnia Mondey, started to teach pole dancing as an art form. She was the first to create a fitness video using the pole and pole dancing has been used as a form of exercise both in a sexual and non-sexual way ever since.
Pole dancing competitions are becoming very popular these days, some people are even saying it should be an Olympic sport!
