POLE CATS MANILA celebrates 2nd anniversary with POLARITY

Say POLE DANCING. I know right. You are thinking of drag dancing, cabaret or even a whore house. I was kinda skeptical when I learned that Pole Cats Manila is one of the partners of the 1st Blogapalooza event last month. I was thinking, what are they doing here? I thought they will be providing entertainment to bloggers. An intermission number in between presentations of different sponsor brands perhaps to break the monotony?  

I am very provincial and I admit I had the same perception as the ones I mentioned above. Then came the show which I accounted in the photos below. I saw how pole dancing could be artistic and non-vulgar. After the performance of one of their members, I immediately talked to CHRISTINA DY, the founder and creative director of Pole Cats Manila and expressed my perceptions about pole dancing so as to  erase my negative sentiments about it.....

I began by asking her, WHY POLE DANCING? She said, why not? I said, the perception is that it's vulgar, she said, "you saw the performance, was it vulgar?" I said no. And I mean it. She continued by saying because pole dancing aside from the fact that it's an art, it is a good way to stay fit. Makes sense.I guess my mind was too busy with the wrong perception, with the malice , that I failed to see beyond it.

The group has this for its mission: "To change how women view their bodies, and to promote a healthy, fit, active lifestyle without denying that yes, our femininity is one of the best weapons we own."

I stopped asking and let it sink in my consciousness instead with the memories of the pole dance performance playing in my memory.
