I’ve just discovered this from a couple of male Chinese Pole performers, during a show in October 2010. Really great examples of what guys on the pole can do:
A very similar routine appears again at the Royal Variety show in 2011, so it’s clearly doing well for them!:
I’ve just been pointed to another great video of a Chinese pole performer today:
He’s one of these performers with incredible upper body strength, some great upper body flexibility, and a pretty great style too!
Well worth a watch.
