Ah, the famous words immortalized into song by Motley Crue! But that aside, it has come to my attention that Montreal is officially in the top ranks when it comes to pole dancing!

Yep it seems the 514’s (well technically it’s 514 and 438 now but c’mon!) very own Valerie Blain and her studio, Studio 409 is now the 1st pole dancing school in Quebec and 2nd in Canada to become a part of the international renowned “Pole Fitness” association.

Although pole dancing has long been partnered with stripper joints, Blain argues that in this day and age it is a form of exercise if practiced in a tasteful manner.
