Dan Burn-Forti shot this fantastic editorial for The Sunday Telegraph’s Stella Magazine documenting The Pole Dancing Championships.

Dan explains his experiences:

“This was definitely not what I expected it to be.  Pole Sports is not pole dancing.  Well, actually, apart from the addition of clothing, I couldn’t really see what the difference was.  But the organisers were at pains to point out that it was a serious sport, with Olympic aspirations, not some sleazy strip joint activity.  Kind of looked at first like ladies dancing with a pole to me, but what do I know.  Having said that, there were plenty of seniors, children and men competing, so it was a good job they’d added clothes and dropped the writhing about, otherwise i’m not sure I’d have of known where to look.”
