Pole dancing, as I understand it, is now widely considered an art form. I have been saying that for years.  It's good to see everyone else is coming around.  According to the News Times, the Ridgefield Playhouse will be hosting a pole fitness showcase Friday Oct. 16 with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and the competition starting at 7:30 p.m.

The Playhouse is located in Ridgefield, CT which is fitting.

Whoa Nelly. I'm so excited I can barely contain myself over here. This is some next level stuff man. There will be three fitness studios showing off their talents at the event which costs just $25.

You can get tickets at www.ridgfieldplayhouse.org

I have never seen one of these events live, but have have heard some GREAT things and let's just say I have watched my fair share of videos online to know that this is a good time had by all.  Like take this one for instance.

That is what I am talking about man. Now I know there will be a lot of people who will come right out and rush to tell me that there is absolutely nothing sexual about this, but they forgot to check and see if I have eyeballs...fun fact...I do.  Not only DO I have eyeballs but those babies work.  It's sexual.  Sure the athleticism of these women is undeniable.  To be able to support all of your body weight with one arm and slide down a pole at a controlled speed is amazing but so are those outfits....AMAZING!

I'm calling to get my ticket right now.
