A Chinese woman has become the latest Internet fad after videos of the acrobatic grandmother pole-dancing scooped thousands of views.

Sun Fengqin, of Nanjing, China, decided to try pole-dancing at the age of 60. The woman was fascinated by a series of pole-dancing videos she watched. The woman admired the fitness and the elegance of the dancers and decided to try it herself, The Daily Mail reports.

“Pole dancing is a special kind of dance,” The Daily Mail quotes Fengqin as saying. “The dance moves that are done beside the pole are very elegant… It’s very feminine, enchanting and seductive,” she added.

Pole dancing is mostly associated with strip clubs and has a slightly disreputable image. Thus the elderly woman decided to keep her new passion a secret, telling nothing to her family. However the truth eventually got out, and to the woman’s surprise, her family including her husband Cui Lianhua did not judge Fengqin or disapprove of her hobby.

The husband’s only concern was his wife’s health. He fears she might hurt her back and aggravate a previous injury.

The instructor teaching Fengqin pole dancing said it was a huge surprise and a shock to have a woman old enough to be her grandmother in her group. However she said she was happy to have her as a student.
