Erotic Dance in Fitness: Appreciate Your Body through Erotic Dance Part III

9:28 PM
Having  reached the last leg of the series of articles in erotic dances, we are going to discuss how it can be applied to fitness. Commonly, there are two types of sexy dances in the field of aerobics: Striptease and Pole Dancing.

I. STRIPTEASE

1. Description

Striptease is an erotic dance in which the performer gradually undresses to music, either partly or completely in a seductive and sexually suggestive manner. The person who performs this dance is usually called a stripper. It involves a slow, sensuous undressing of the performer as the audience urge him or her to remove more clothing. The stripper may do prolonging tactics of undressing such as wearing additional clothes or hands covering undressed body parts such as the breasts and between the legs. The dance emphasizes more on the act of undressing in a sexually suggestive manner rather than being undressed.

In the past, performances end once the strippers has undressed all their clothing but today, they continue to dance even in the nude.

The costume worn by the stripper before undressing maybe part of the act. They are usually fantasy themed: such as construction worker, human bunny and gothic ballerina.

2. Striptease in Fitness

With an impressive body of work that encompasses dance, television, film, comedy and theatre, Carmen Electra has quickly emerged as one of Hollywood's most versatile personalities.

Growing up, Carmen attended Cincinnati's School for Creative and Performing Arts. She always knew she was destined to be an entertainer. It was after graduating high school in 1991 that Carmen moved to the City of Angels and caught the eye of Prince, who would go on to produce her self-titled album on his Paisley Park label.

Carmen ultimately ventured into acting with regular roles on Baywatch and the MTV's Singled Out. Carmen has since made the move to the big screen with starring roles in blockbuster hits including Scary Movie, Dirty Love, Cheaper by the Dozen 2 and Meet the Spartans.

Carmen won the role as the face of MAX Factor following in the famous footsteps of Marilyn Monroe and Jaclyn Smith. Electrifying, intoxicating and firmly in control, for two years Carmen brought the high-glam attitude of the MAX Factor line to life with style and sensuality.

In 2006, Carmen became a published author with the release of her book, How to be Sexy. She also formed a dance troupe, the Bombshells, who perform nationwide, and she recently released the fitness DVD series, Carmen Electra’s Aerobic Striptease.

In 2009, Carmen appeared live on stage in MGM Grand Vegas' Crazy Horse Burlesque Show to sold-out audiences during the summer and fall of the year.

Currently, Carmen is starring in the film, Oy Vey, My Son is Gay. (http://www.carmenelectra.com/page/biography-1)

II. POLE DANCING

1. Description

Pole Dancing is a form of performing art, combining dancing and gymnastics. It involves dancing sensually with a certical pole used in strip clubs.

Advanced pole dancing requires significant strength, flexibility and endurance. In a strip club, it is often performed less gymnastically focusing on its integration with striptease, G0-Go and/or lap dancing between performers. The dancer (s) may simply hold the pole or climb to it, spin around it and do body inversions.

2. Pole Dancing in Fitness

Pole dancing is now considered as a fitness exercise for both aerobic and anaerobic workout. This form of exercise increases upper body strength while toning the body as a whole.

Pole Dancing as an exercise is very similar to Mallakhamb, an Indian men's sport with no erotic component. However, there has been no evidence of a link between the two.

Although pole dance competitions are still done amateurly in strip clubs, there is a growing world wide community taking it as a serious sport and art form. Pole dancing competitions have attempted to shy away from those of the strip clubs. These events are strictly non-nude and non-stripping having the judges and the audience focus on the athletics and artistry of the performer rather than on pure sex appeal.
