Shi Xiaohong, 45, lives in Pinghu, east China's Zhejiang province. She has started to practice pole dance since 2009. Now she created her own dance studio to train students. She said: "Pole dance makes me healthier and slim, and the most important thing is that it makes me confident." With pole dance getting increasingly popular in China, more and more middle-aged and elderly people like Shi have fallen in love with the dance.
