DETROIT -

A Canadian dance studio is causing a stir with its latest pole dancing for kids class.

The instructor says her classes are about fitness and fun, not sex.

She also says children who pole dance get an excellent cardiovcasular and upper-body workout.

Her little spinners class has four students signed up so far, and their parents already take the adult class.

This class idea isn't new though as Russia held a national pole dancing competition last week, with children as young as seven participating.
