I always wanted to be somebody, but now I realize I should have been more specific.

Dear katyah,

Welcome to Taiwan! :)

The horizontal poles that are for pull ups are supported by vertical poles that are for your dancing pleasure.

I am not as urbane as sandman, but I know how pole dancing works. I did not expect you to dance horizontally, though there are no rules at the entrance to Da'an Park which prohibit that.

Sorry if I didn't make myself clear in the previous post.

Best wear clothes if you go to Da'an Park.

I feel your pain, a friend of mine in Taidong had a pole installed in her living room, and was teaching me some tricks...but then she got deported. Not because of the pole, as far as I know...


How permanent was the pole in her living room? Did she have to pour concrete?

yes, maybe I'll just rent a ktv room for morning training :) do you know one with a pole?

a pull up pole won't work because it needs to be vertical for poledancing if possible. oh, and wrestling: don't mess with a poledancer! :)

what a pity poleancing is not that common in Taiwan. is there a reason?


Just that the fashion has not hit here yet. Also, like, the real pole dancers are still few, and most perform at weddings and funerals, meaning it is more traditional style. Also, as said, space is a problem, and setting up a studio with the appropriate poles -not slippery so you will not break your neck when upside down- might be too expensive. Furthermore, Taiwanese are a bit wary of "dangerous" sports. Which reminds me rock climbing might be a better alternative, with the weather becoming better soon, outdoor rock walls seem more attractive.

the owner's name is Bora, she has the only full time pole studio in Taiwan. the other places are dance studios that simply run a pole class here and there
