O budowaniu i odczytywaniu znaczeń zajęć sportowych pole dance
Creating and Decoding the Meanings of Pole Dancing as a Sport Activity
Languages of publication
Although currently pole dancing is growing in popularity due to its sport dimension, it seems that such a form of expression is still commonly associated with strip clubs and connotes above all the erotic performance of a woman in front of a male audience. And yet, as one can find by frequenting dance studios that teach pole dancing, it is practiced not only by women, but also by men and children. Thus keeping in mind the ambiguity that arises at the intersection of competing optics in decoding the pole dance-with regard to “perpetuate interpretation logic” and the everyday experience of people undertaking the activity-the aim of this paper is to reflect on the issue of constructing and interpreting the meanings of actions and processes within the context of pole dancing. These processes can be seen as a reflection of the everyday life in which they occur.
