A popular saying is that modern pole dancing originated in the construction sites of the United States at the end of the 19th century. Initially, some construction workers sang while dancing with steel pipes, and they were entertained at work, showing the cheerful and optimistic national character of the American nation.

There is also a saying that the pole dance originated in China. After historical research and analysis, the pole dance was inspired by the traditional Chinese acrobatics “crawling”. After the form was refurbished, it formed a dance form with steel pipes as props for climbing, inverted and hanging.

The mural “Mr. Song Guo’s Travel Map” in Dunhuang Mogao Grottoes in the Tang Dynasty is a picture of the predecessor.

Not only did the Han acrobatics develop unprecedentedly, but ethnic minorities and foreign acrobatics also gained extensive exchanges and development during this period. In short, Chinese acrobatics art has achieved unprecedented development in the Tang Dynasty, and has created a good foundation for the further development of acrobatic art.
