Beneath the purple-and-white-striped walls, ladies of all ages and fitness levels twirl around poles and sink seductively into chairs during The Perfect Poleforma?s alternative fitness classes. Instructors lead groups of up to 10 women through beginning, intermediate, and advanced classes. The classes start with basic pole spins and leg-strength exercises and graduate to swinging upside down, hanging onto the pole with just the inner thighs, and climbing flagpoles to add stars as new states are discovered. They also conduct parties for bachelorettes and birthday girls, allowing groups of friends free rein of the ceiling-mounted poles.
The certified teachers at TC Dance Club International recognize that people dance for all kinds of reasons; accordingly, they structure different programs to meet the needs of everyone from casual dancers hoping to light up the dance floor at an upcoming party to perfectionists in the pursuit of lifelong grace. Their lessons incorporate a multitude of styles, including tango, merengue, foxtrot, and rain dances. On Friday nights, students can practice what they've learned in dance parties, which are set to premade mixes in a room with dimmed lights and an open bar.

Colleen’s Studio of Dance Arts develops rhythmic movements in students of all ability levels with a full suite of weekly dance lessons. Throughout the month, skillful instructors unmask the trade secrets of multifarious moves and grooves, from the classic trifecta of ballet, tap, and jazz to mid-postmodern hip hop, musical theater, and cheer dance. With gatherings of 15 or fewer dancers per lesson, each student is ensured individualized attention and the chance to perfect postures, commingle with fleet-footed peers, and transform every now and then into a swan. Liberated from the obligation of registration fees, prospective lords and ladies of the dance can freely peruse the online schedule for upcoming classes.
Pole Play Diva Fitness Studio's flirty fitness classes blend sassy entertainment with a calorie-burning workout, bolstering women's self-esteem and diminishing their waistlines. During sessions with five students, experienced instructors provide encouragement while guiding dancers of all skill levels through the variety of fitness classes and pole-dancing lessons. From Pole Fit, which focuses on rudimentary technique, to Pole Pleasure 102, an advanced class that teaches tricky dance moves, bodies of all shapes and sizes spin, twist, and shimmy on the practice poles. Each lesson has a suggested wardrobe, and pole pupils should wear shorts with a fair amount of exposed skin to help them to grip and acclimate poles to human contact.
