Pole dancer in church causes row

, Comments 0 comments

A pole dancing act performed in a church has raised eyebrows in the eastern Dutch city of Doetinchem.

The act took place during a ceremonial gathering of the local carnival society, which hires the city’s largest church each year to present its new carnival prince. But the act by a scantily-clad pole dancer performing to loud rock music was “perhaps going too far”, church sexton Jan Kuiperij told the local press.

What was supposed to be a ceremonial evening had developed into a full-blown carnival romp, the sexton says. “Litres of beer went over the stone floor.”

The minister at St Catherine’s Church, Klaas Bakker, says he isn’t aware of what went on during the carnival club’s evening. “I do know the agreed boundaries within which the carnival society uses the church. The agreement was for a reception-like activity with no excessive alcohol consumption. Pole dancing certainly goes beyond the boundaries.” The minister says he intends to take the matter up with the society.
