Who would have thought that “pole dancing” can give a rejuvenating power to women? Well, the women in the Netflix’s upcoming documentary is going to tell us just that!
Netflix is taking us all into the “world of pole dancing” with its upcoming documentary “Strip Down, Rise Up.”
Judging by the first trailer of the documentary directed by Michele Ohayon, a group of women learn to restore their confidence over their sexuality, souls and bodies with the help of a new of kind of therapy: pole dancing…
Here are three reasons why this documentary is a must-watch for women:
It teaches women to embrace their sexuality!
The world has certainly come far in terms of feminism and women’s rights, but the women of today’s age still feel restraint and confined when it comes to their bodies.
We live in a society that exert pernicious pressure on women, forcing them to follow their “defined” standards of an ideal body. We often told that our bodies are not appealing if we don’t meet their unrealistic criteria of a beautiful body.
You sure want to deny this but men have a fair-share of influence over women’s bodies without their will. They tend to manipulate our minds into following their defined standards of beauty. The outcome? Millions of women around the world struggle to get into a perfect shape for men or to please them with a desirable figure… and in pursuit of this, they lost their confidence along the process…
Considering the social stigma surrounding power and beauty, females don’t always feel secure with their own sexuality.
Shelia Kelly, one of the subjects of Netflix’s documentary “Strip down, Rise Up,” wants female to accept their sexuality! She wants women to embrace their femininity and to explore their power through a new form of therapy called pole dancing.
The documentary features a concept of sisterhood
Kelly, renowned actress and dancer who also starred in the movie Oprah, is a founder of a popular feminine exercise called “S Factor.” She is one of the prominent subjects in the Netflix’s documentary. She has founded multiple exercise studios all across the United States and also planning to extend her franchise across borders.
The documentary focuses on Kelly’s six-month seminar of self-discovery, which include dance classes and group therapy of women. This seminar is a major platform that bring women together.
It’s inspiring to see these females uniting on one platform and forming a strong bond of sisterhood. Watching the participants of the seminar supporting and cheering for each other as they learn a new endeavor is fascinating; the documentary is surely an inspiring tribute to the ultimate force of womanhood.
It gives an uplifting message to women
The documentary’s message is inspiring and uplifting. It attempts to clear the centuries-old social stigma and taboo associated with pole dancing. All our lives we believed that pole dancing is wrong; it’s something only sex workers or strippers do.
But it’s wrong! In fact, Sexual dance helps women to heal from their previous traumas and restore their confidence. In the documentary, we see how women overcome their fears and insecurities through pole dancing. At the end of their course with Kelly, they have started embracing their bodies and also established valuable relationships with each other along the way.
These women are knocking down patriarchy with their amazing dance moves on a pole!
“Strip down, Rise Up” is slated to release on Netflix on 5th February.
