When Brandi Godcharles discovered pole dancing in 2010, she quickly put her writing career on hold to pursue her new passion. Since then, she's been teaching pole dance full-time, helping instill students with self-confidence while teaching them sultry new moves at Rock N Body Pole & Exotic Dance Studio. During classes focused on movement and dance, Brandi and her fellow instructors walk pupils through pole basics?spins and floorwork, plus proper body alignment and grips. Once students have mastered those skills, they can move on to tricks classes, which teach dancers how to safely perform everything from static sitting poses to climbing the entire pole without the help of a stepladder. Besides group classes, the studio welcomes students for private lessons, and groups of friends can schedule a pole-dancing party.
For more than two decades, Tint and Audio Express?s staffers have rolled up to driveways throughout the Fort Myers area to help vehicles hide what?s stashed in their back seats with tinted windows. In addition to the UV-ray-blocking film, which staffers can apply to windows on cars, boats, houses, and zeppelins, the mobile shop applies films to home windows to protect them during hurricanes. They can also affix front bumpers with a clear film, which invisibly wards off dings and scratches. Car audio equipment including satellite radios, iPod equipment, and subwoofers ensures that no one will be able to perform an a cappella rendition of Cats on your next road trip, and the techs can head indoors to install custom home-theater systems for enhanced movie nights.
