Check Out This Routine by the World’s Best Pole Dancer
This much is clear: 'America's Got Talent' is not nearly as good as the Ukrainian version.
The young lady in the clip above, whose name is Anastasia Sokolova, is quite the performer. A natural on the pole. In fact, the only parts of the video we can't get into are the cutaways to the audience, which are terribly annoying and really detract from the beauty of Anastasia's art. Yes, art. She's not a stripper, guys. This is pole dancing. Or, should we say, Pole Dancing.
We sometimes poke fun at pole dancers around here—sorry, but usually when a pole-dancing video hits the Web, it's in the FAIL category—but Anastasia really shows us what's possible when a woman wraps her legs around a metal pole and swings about to and fro. Well done.
