Before pole-dancing classes, flirty fitness was limited to holding hands with a stairmaster or romancing Jack LaLanne. Learn more seductive exercises with today's Groupon to Sheila Kelley S Factor, valid at the locations on West Twenty-Third Street, West Twenty-Fourth Street, and East Fifty-Fourth Street. Choose between the following options:
- For $19, you get an Introductory Teaser pole-dancing class (a $40 value), plus a $100 voucher toward a subsequent eight-week Level I class series.
- For $250, you get a 90-minute Girls' Night Out private party for up to 10 women (a $550 value).
Created by actress, model, and dancer Sheila Kelley, the S Factor's patented patterns of yoga, ballet, Pilates, striptease, and pole-dancing movements empower women during workouts that have garnered recognition from press including O, The Oprah Magazine. One- to two-hour Introductory Teaser classes unfold inside a soothing, dimly lit studio without mirrors and their endless gossiping about evil stepmothers. Students need to bring workout attire and bottled water to arm bodies for unique sequences that include the S Factor Workout, the S Walk, and the Firefly pole trick. In the midst of an empowering community, women with or without any dance or athletic background gain confidence, flexibility, and key skills for future careers as flag rescuers.
During Girls' Night Out private parties, an instructor guides up to 10 women through the S Factor workout and their choice of single class, such as the intermediate Lap Dance I class or the nearly impossible Elect a Pole to Congress class. Groups practice techniques inside a private studio and can finish the workout by asking the instructor to perform a demo dance if desired.
Sheila Kelley S Factor
Sheila Kelly S Factor New York's empowering fitness philosophy encourages women of all ages, shapes, and sizes to celebrate their bodies and express their femininity through invigorating pole-dancing classes. Hollywood actress, classically trained dancer, and S Factor founder Shelia Kelley began her career in sensual fitness while preparing for a movie role which required her to hone striptease and pole-dancing skills. Quickly recognizing the physical and emotional benefits of performing these slinky, strengthening movements, Kelley devised a routine that merged ballet, yoga, and Pilates with her new choreography and set out to share the workout with women across the country. In the process, Kelley and her pole-fitness technique have acquired celebrity students such as Eva Longoria, Amy Adams, and the flagpole outside Grand Central Station, as well as features in People magazine and Time Out New York.
