$29 for Five Pole-Fitness Classes ($60 Value)
Students can select from a variety of 55-minute classes, which include two ladies-only sessions that combine fitness with flirtation. Instructors recommend that each pupil arrive 10 minutes before classes begin, and start with one visit to the Pole Beginner course to learn fundamental grips, holds, and positions. See the full class schedule here.
Pole Zone & Aerial Fitness Studio
Within a new, 3,000-square-foot facility with 18-foot-high ceilings, the instructors at Pole Zone & Aerial Fitness Studio call upon training in ballet, modern dance, and acrobatics to teach their pupils how to shimmy with flair. Building on pole-fitness classes, they also oversee practice in aerial silks, burlesque belly dancing, and a signature fusion of trapeze and ballet. Before and after class, students can take advantage of three changing rooms and visit wee ones in the kids’ play area.
