Pole Dancing: All In The Family?

ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis, Missouri mother and father are teaching their kids, including their son and young daughters, how to pole dance.

Lindsey Teall is an exotic dancer. She said pole dancing includes dance, gymnastics and performing arts. 

"It's a great combination of dance, gymnastics and performance art," Teall says.

She says she's gotten a lot of backlash for teaching her kids how to pole dance. Her son is 11 and her daughters are just 3 and 5 years old.

"There still seems to be this weird stigma attached to it, that you can't separate the exotic from the sport, and we're trying to put a stop to that if we can," she says.
