They have been braving the frosty conditions in a bid to win over people who disapprove of what they do.
The country now has a national pole dancing team that regularly enters competitions but the sport is still frowned upon for being part of the sex industry.
The national squad that features three women and one man are trying to show the public that they have as much skill as gymnasts.
One member of the squad, Song Yoa, said: "We train just like athletes. There's nothing sexy about what we do. It's a sport like gymnastics.
"If people would shed their prejudices and just watch us, they'd see we're not sleazy."
One passer-by said: "They seem to be very dedicated. Those poles must be freezing in this weather."
