A pole dancer has abandoned plans to run classes for children after being condemned by a children's charity.
Ms Davis said she had not meant to offend anyone
Sarah Davis, from Coventry, had scheduled pole dancing lessons for youngsters aged 12 and over at her PoleCats studio in Birmingham.
The 36-year-old said it was a physically demanding activity which would have given those attending a different way of keeping fit.
But Childline described the idea as "misguided" and "an outrage".
Chief executive Carole Easton said: "There are hundreds and thousands of other, much more appropriate ways in
which children can keep fit, enjoy sport and dance."
Ms Davis said on Thursday she had not meant to offend anyone and confirmed she had cancelled the lessons.
"Our aim was purely to provide a way to help kids keep fit and boost their confidence," she said.
"But we've decided to cancel the classes and keep our lessons for over 18s only."
