In groups of up to seven, pole-dancers tackle floor work and strength training in anticipation of a choreographed routine with some aerial work. The classes are suitable for beginners, especially those looking to boost core and upper-body strength. They’re held Mondays at 5:30 p.m., Tuesdays at 6 p.m., and Sundays at 11:30 a.m. Groupon customers must take their classes in consecutive weeks.
Maneuvering on the 16-foot poles at Poledello may seem daunting to anyone but a firefighter, but the fitness pros that teach pole-dance classes can quickly dash any trepidation a student may have. Each staff member each has safety training, and classes are conducted in groups of 10 or fewer students to ensure each dancer gets personal attention when working on moves. That said, the class members include beginners and pros alike—pole dancing can be helpful to anyone seeking increased core strength, flexibility, and enough upper-body muscle to win the annual company wheelbarrow race. From intro classes, to four tiers of Trick and Spin, to Aerial Hoop and Silks, each of their sessions offer a different level or type of sensual dance, with an end goal of honing a tighter physique.
