A 70-year-old grandfather from the Chinese province of Guizhou showed off his skills in a pole dancing studio, in Chengdu, Thursday.
Zhang Xi Da claims his manic moves are the key to eternal youth; helping keep him in shape, in good health and in high spirits.
Having found that he was too short to find a partner to take up Latin dancing, Zhang turned to the pole instead. He hasn't looked back since! Zhang says, “Pole dancing speaks for itself, no need to find a partner, a person can just jump on!"
"My illness, myocarditis, causes fattening, my physical strength is not so good," he explained modestly.
