The consortium of professional instructors at DanceSmiths Ballroom Dance Studio shepherds students of all ages and skill levels through lessons that span the style spectrum. Low-pressure private sessions allow enthusiastic teachers to fine-tune individual students' techniques and form, using their expert eyes and mechanical dancing shoes preprogrammed to do the Charleston. Patrons can learn how to cavort through classic waltz and fox-trot romps or swivel through the modern steps of salsa, swing, or samba. For dancers hoping to hoof it up in a social setting, the group practice parties provide a one-night extravaganza of instruction, demonstrations, and amateur firewalking.
Nicki Dark, a mother of three, discovered a passion for strength-building pole fitness back in 2012. She became a certified instructor and opened her own studio to help others whip their bodies into shape. The workouts that Nikki and her staff lead are no joke?whereas pole dance classes strive for sexuality, pole fitness classes focus on improving your athleticism with core-building spins and pole tricks. In fact, instructor Pole Mama Carol was first drawn to the sport to build upper-body strength for a stronger swing in her coed softball league, and certain classes at the studio are geared toward men as well. Alongside pole fitness, the studio also offers yoga classes to further strengthen cores and improve flexibility.
The inspiring trainers at MetaBody lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening Shaolin kung-fu class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.
