Pole Dancing Lessons in Saudi Arabia
September 22, 2011 15 Comments
A Pole Dancing instructor travelled to SA and gave private lessons to a Saudi wife, so she can learn how to pole dance for her husband [link].
Misch taught Qahtani – who is, unusually, the sole wife to her husband Mohammed – intensively for two hours each day, six days a week, teaching her to climb the pole, do the splits upside down and create a fluid routine.
The two trained in Lycra gym kit – a stark contrast from the abaya Saudi women wear in public.
As a stunt, Misch and her host took photos of themselves performing a pole dance wearing the abaya, Saudi Arabia’s traditional dress.
‘Qahtani wanted to make a point,’ says Misch. ‘But it angered a lot of people who thought the photos were insulting.’
Do you too feel that the pictures are a tad bit insulting to Saudis?
