Before pole-dancing classes, flirty fitness was limited to holding hands with a Stairmaster or romancing Jack LaLanne. Learn more seductive exercises with this Groupon.

Pole- and burlesque-dancing classes fuse sultry dance moves with a conditioning workout to help women of all fitness levels lose weight and tone muscle while building their confidence. In a private studio, professional trainer and dancer Jacqueline Valdez maintains a safe, supportive environment. She takes ladies through basic pole and floor moves in the pole-dancing class, eventually building to a full routine. Alternatively, the burlesque class focuses on the tradition's more polished style, combining jazz, ballet, and modern dance. Participants should bring a yoga mat to each class and wear a tank top and shorts—burlesque classes also require a scarf or boa—and avoid wearing lotions or jewelry. Classes are performed barefoot, though students may wear heels as they progress. This Groupon is also valid for any other fitness class at Elegant Body Pilates, including Zumba, Zumba Toning, Piloxing, and Pilates.
Lastly, pole-dancing or burlesque parties host up to 12 ladies for bachelorette bashes, birthday celebrations, or a random girls' night out.
Elegant Body Pilates with Jacqueline Valdez
With professional experience in jazz, ballet, and modern dance, Jacqueline Valdez could have gone off to audition for Broadway musicals. Instead, she pursued pole dancing. Backed by accolades that include a finals appearance at the PSO Southeast aerial art competition, a Gold medal dramatic SL3 division winner, and as a creator of the ballet-infused Infusion Remax and Vertical Arabesque classes, Jacqueline now shares her passion for pole dancing—as well as Pilates, burlesque, and other forms of dance-based fitness—at her all-women's dance and fitness studio, Elegant Body Pilates with Jacqueline Valdez.
Understanding that dance and fitness are as much about gaining self-esteem as losing weight, Jacqueline maintains small class sizes so that she can give clients personal attention and maintain a safe, supportive atmosphere. She even offers online classes that clients can participate in from home. In addition to classes and workshops, Jacqueline organizes pole-dancing and burlesque parties designed for all manner of celebrations, from bachelorette parties to Supreme Court swearing-ins.
