Kristy Craig, a dance instructor at Twisted Grip in British Columbia, is currently accepting students for Little Spinners, a pole dancing class for kids, ABC News reports.
Craig said her classes are about fitness and fun, not sex. She said pole dancing is an excellent cardiovascular and upper-body workout.
The class has four students signed up so far, and their parents already take the adult class.
