With the vigorous moves that pole dancing entails, such as swinging around a pole and dangling from it, how safe is the activity for senior citizens?

Raija Kuisma, principal lecturer in the University of Brighton's physiotherapy program, says that the varied movements in pole dancing and how they are performed by each person first need to be carefully analyzed, so there's no one answer regarding its suitability for the elderly.

"People age differently for different reasons, therefore age itself is not a contraindication for any activities," Kuisma, who is also president of the European Network of Physiotherapy in Higher Education, says.
