Pole dancing is an art form that started in the strip clubs and like many other subcultures is now part of the American mainstream. Tucson has become an unexpected hotbed for the industry, boasting a variety of studios teaching different styles of pole dance. It is even home to the U.S. Pole Sports Federation which holds the national championships here and hopes to one day bring the sport to the Olympics.
