The origins of dancing around a pole can be widely debated with references throughout history. From Maypole, a pagan fertility celebration, dating back to the 12th Century, to the traditional Indian sport of mallakhamb, which utilizes principles of endurance and strength on a wooden pole. The Chinese pole, includes circus professionals on a special rubber covered pole approximately 3-9 meters in height. We see glimpses of the pole breaking into pop culture as early as the 1950s with the rock and roll invasion & Elvis Presley’s “Jailhouse Rock”.
