My guess is they'll go with the latter.
At least in the stripper dancing classes, they don' t yet protest: "it has NOTHING to do with stripping...that's...fitness dancing!!! Though if the fad does not fade, I'm sure we will get to that point for some!
If you want to dance like a stripper, it's your choice! But don't deny your progenitors....how can you ever have self-esteem yourself, if you remain so shamed, and so in denial, of your roots?? :-)
PS. It may yet make the olympics. It's actually far more athletic than many of the olher "sports". Then again, Olympic sport is hardly a badge of honor....pool plunging.....pistol dueling (oh...I mean fitness pistols...it had nothing to do with violence).....and of course: solo synchronized swimming.
