A 23-year-old Chinese man has carved out an unusual career - as a professional pole dancer.


Ha Tao says he has been obsessed by the activity since first seeing a woman pole dance in a pub six years ago.


"I was so attracted by her dancing that I completely forgot my friends and just stared at her the whole night," he said.


"I thought it was something that I could do. My friends scoffed and said it was just for women but I was determined."


However, his home town, Qingdao in eastern China's Shandong Province, has something of a macho reputation and local dance schools refused to teach him because he was a man.


Ha started learning at home by watching videos and eventually moved away from home to Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, where he found a dance school prepared to take him.


"During the day, I learnt the skills in the training school, while at night I danced in pubs to earn the tuition fees," he said.


After five years, he came back home an accomplished pole dancer and says he now earns £6,000 a month dancing, and also works as a pole dancing instructor.


"It's a living that I couldn't even imagine before. But I care more about my dancing. Money is not that important to me as long as I am doing what I like," he added.


"Some people still yell at me when I dance because I am a man, and some even throw fluorescent sticks at me, but pole dancing is my life. I won't give it up."

And even Aussies do this  ...........  !

BUDAPEST—Spinning upside down around a tall silver rod here last weekend, an Australian fellow named Matty Shields stared down a panel of women judges, a mainly female crowd and decades of stereotypes. He hoped to become a gender pioneer: the world's first official king of pole dancing.

I bet Canadians would like this sort of thing  ........

Canadians are too strong and stiff to learn that kind of dance.
