A Canadian fitness studio is under scrutiny after introducing pole dancing lessons for children as young as five years old. The class, entitled “Little Spinners,” has been added to the Twisted Grip Dance and Fitness studio in Duncan, British Columbia.


Instructor Kristy Craig insists the classes are focused on fitness, and that children are not taught any “sexual moves.”

A child psychologist, however, warns that parents should be conscious of pole dancing’s association with stripping and the sex industry.

Girls and boys from the ages of 5 and 12 have already been enrolled in the controversial classes.


Craig, a certified fitness and aerobics instructor, introduced the class after parents demanded it.


“My existing students were asking about it for their children,” said Craig.

“They were saying: ‘My daughter plays on my pole at home all the time. I’d love her to actually learn how to do things properly and not hurt herself.’

“They have no association with it or think there is anything wrong or bad about it. That’s an adult putting that on them,” she said.

Craig says the class focuses on gymnastics and aerobics, without the children learning any “adult” moves.

“I treat it just like gymnastic classes,” she said, adding: “This is strictly about fitness.”
