Lindsey Teall, a former exotic dancer, and her partner, Jake Night are teaching their three kids – two daughters and a son – to pole dance.
Lindsey said that she was pole dancing when she was pregnant with both of the girls and ‘when they were born they felt that they were already a part of that art’.
The couple together teaching their three kids to pole dance and their 11-year-old son Aiden practices every day after school.
“We pole dance every day if not more, I dance at work obviously, then the kids dance when I’m not here and they also dance when I’m here,” Lindsey told Barcroft.
“We feel that pole dancing is a sport for kids as well as for adults because it’s very dance-heavy and it’s also very gymnastics-heavy. You have to be strong, you have to be grateful.”
The couple says that adding their kids into their performance is amazing.
The couple receives backlash for teaching their kids to pole dance but they say that they didn’t force their kids to learn pole dancing.
“We have dealt with a lot of negative comments, I can’t even count, thousands upon thousands upon thousands. We’ve heard some pretty horrific things, they were going to hunt us down and kill us and take our children” Jake said.
“The naysayers, the haters and everybody like that just makes us, as parents, more protective of them”, he added.
But, Lindsey says that she doesn’t have any concern about her children participating in pole dancing.She said: “You can’t explain to everybody that this is a legitimate sport.
A lot of people, you just can’t change their opinion.We’re living our most authentic life, sometimes people don’t like that; they want you to be like everybody else. ”
“Stripping is becoming somewhat obsolete, clubs are getting less busy, they’re dying down. Pole dance is taking a new route, it’s evolving into a sport, into an art.”
The couple recently performed at Pole Con International in Orlando, Florida with their children.
