In Old Town Spring, Texas, Crystal Dean has opened up her pole dancing studio, The Best Shape of Your Life, to the worship of Jesus. Dancing to upbeat contemporary Christian music, attendees must bring a church program to be admitted to the class.The class is seen as an extension of the worship taking place in a traditional church environment. "God gives us these bodies, and they are supposed to be our temples and we are supposed to take care of them," Dean told a Houston news station.

While Dean was a dancer for three years, her goal is not to "teach women to be strippers" but rather to find a form of fitness that is empowering to women.
