How to Win a Strip-Club Championship, According to the Pole-Dancing Pros

Hey, ladies! What if there was a way to get in shape, commune with fellow women, and win a ton of money? You'd be excited, right? And how about if we meant pole dancing?

Dawn Price is a dedicated fitness instructor with ten years of experience teaching everyday women how to pole dance for themselves. This weekend, she'll judge a slew of entertainers vying for the Summer Pole Party Competition's big $15,000 cash prize at Tootsie's Cabaret.

These women are highly-skilled dancers from all kinds of backgrounds, but Price promises the women she teaches at Iron Flower Fitness are just average ladies, young and old, big and small. She says, with the right attitude, any woman can be a pole dancing vixen.
