A Cambridge University society plans to launch a series of pole dancing classes, it has been revealed.

Members of the Cambridge Union will be offered fitness classes in the prestigious society building.

Female students can pay £2 to learn to dance in the Blue Room of the union, which is more commonly used as a centre for debates.

Statesmen such as Winston Churchill, Theodore Roosevelt and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have spoken at the society.

A spokeswoman for the Cambridge Union said: "We are of the opinion that classes like these are a way of empowering women, as well as being a fantastic way to exercise and have fun together with other women.

"If an intelligent, independent woman wishes to learn a particular form of dance in respectable surroundings, we see nothing degrading in that."
