Pole-dancing has gained much respect since its inception, much like Darwin's theory of evolution and Darwin's own career as a pole dancer. Explore the science of self-esteem with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $39 for a one-month "Start Out Strong" membership (a $100 value)
- $89 for 10 METHOD, Stretch and Strengthen, and open pole classes (a $200 value)
- $149 for a two-hour pole-dancing party for up to 10 guests with champagne and strawberries (a $325 value)
The Start Out Strong membership admits guests to four semiprivate pole-dance lessons, during which an instructor acquaints them with the pole and imparts a progressive series of spins, tricks, and stretches. Sessions cap attendance at five participants to ensure personal instruction; participants also receive assessments, which track each student's development. The membership also includes unlimited open pole, stretch-and-strengthen, METHOD, and NIA classes. Click here for a class schedule.
During the two-hour party, certified teachers impart pole-dancing fundamentals as participants snap photos, snack on strawberries, and sip champagne.
The certified instructors at PoleMoves invented a curriculum that's highly personalized in order to rectify the most common complaints about pole-fitness studios. They sort their students into clearly delineated levels for small group and private lessons, conducting regular assessments so that advanced practitioners need not repeat quizzes about which way is up. By devoting individual attention to their students, who each get their own 12.5-foot pole during class, they foster a supportive environment for shedding inhibitions.
The studio's courses cover basic pole-dancing techniques, the advanced inversions and tricks of METHOD classes, stretch-and-strengthen conditioning, and the meditative rhythms of NIA. During specialized workshops, instructors might demonstrate chair-dancing choreography or tips for aspiring teachers on planning their routines. The staff's mission is to highlight the legitimacy and accessibility of their gravity-defying art, and they've been recognized for doing so by the American Council on Exercise, AFAA, and the American Pole Fitness Association.
If you've ever hesitated to take pole, I would absolutely recommend coming to this studio to check it out.Mira C., Yelp, 5/9/12
