UCLA Hosting Event to Teach Students the Art of ‘Pole Dancing’

This could be a valuable skill to have if you spend four years getting a useless degree.

Campus Reform reports:

UCLA is now teaching students how to pole dance

Two official university divisions at UCLA teamed up to host an event Thursday which introduced students to the art of pole dancing.

The Sexploration Pole Art Class was hosted by the UCLA Sexual Health Coalition and UCLA Housing, according to the Facebook event page. Organizers offered students the “chance to explore [their] inner-diva and divo” and “get introduced to the basic moves needed to become a magnificent pole dancer.”

The class was taught by Candace Cane, a Los Angeles area “Exotic Aerialist” who told the Daily Bruin that she hoped attendees of her class would “gain more confidence in their appearance, because when you see yourself accomplishing something that you thought you couldn’t, it opens up a whole other world.”

One attendee, freshman biology student Elle Mendelson also told the Daily Bruin that “having a pole-dancing class available to students gives them a way to take control of the way they present themselves, and in that way people are able to take back the objectification.”

This isn’t the first time that UCLA has held such an event. In April 2018, the UCLA Sexual Health Coalition hosted a Sextravaganza which included workshops on the topics of heel, chair, and pole dancing, as well as “under the stars” yoga.

Sounds like a practical course for snowflakes who choose to major in the trendy “social justice” areas. They’re more likely to become employable based on a Pole Dancing course than with a major in Gender Studies.

Don’t laugh. With liberal arts grads, pole dancing may be the only way they can make a decent living.
