In the ancient Greek mythology, the Minotaur was a beast with many heads, but the strongest of all was it’s eight feet of iron heel. The feet came together by the heels because they were the “first thing that was to be broken” (or broken, in myth), by the “hearts of the beasts.” That’s the reason the heel holds the pole.
There are many myths involving the height (or length) of a pole dancer’s heel. The myth of the Colossus of Rhodes in Colosseum is one of the most famous. When the Colossus of Rhodes was being built, the Romans had a problem that had been hanging over the Colossus of Rhodes all along. “It was too short,” was the argument, and so it was shortened. The Romans did this “to ensure that those who were not worthy to climb on [his statue] could not lift it.” But as one writer states, “The reason for the addition was obvious: it gave him an appearance of being twice as high as he actually was.” It also ensured that the man who climbed on the statue could not lift it.
A much less common myth is that of a pole dancer who wears high heels so she can make it up a hill in a short time. The theory is that as someone starts up a hill, her heels are raised up, lifting her up to a height that would make her too heavy to climb back down. If the pole was long enough, the heel would not be lifted high enough so that people were unable to lift it even for a short time.
How do you know if your pole is long enough?
It is important for pole dancers to understand that long pole dancers may have short heels and long pole dancers may have medium heels. The length of a pole dancer’s heel is not the only measurement for whether their pole is right.
What makes a pole long enough?
Pole dancers are taught to use a variety of measuring points. Many people believe that a pole will be long if and only if it is made of two parts. A standard length for steel wire, which is used in rope, is two-thirds of an inch, but that figure does not mean a pole will be long. Steel wire that is made of different lengths (e.g., three-quarters of an inch, one and one-half inches) is used in different situations. A steel wire that can be worked over a wooden board has a standard length, but when a pole
