  • Pole Sinsations
    Pole Sinsations empowers women and men of all ages and fitness levels by using sensual dance techniques to provide full-body workouts. The studio space features seven 12-foot brass poles and stage lighting, creating a noncompetitive, confidence-boosting performance space for attendees looking to express themselves through dance. During the introductory-level classes, instructors will teach fundamental hand and foot placement while helping newcomers control the speed and momentum of basic spins. As students become more skilled and build flexibility, core strength, and muscle tone, they can begin practicing inversions and even develop choreographed routines that combine floorwork with pole techniques. Chair-dancing and flexibility classes round out the studio's schedule of empowering, dance-based workouts.

  • Fred Astaire Dance Studio
    The consortium of professional instructors at Fred Astaire Dance Studio, which was cofounded by the legendary toe tapper himself, 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.

  • Dance For 2
    The jazz standard ?Flying Home? brought Savoy Swing Club?s founders together in 1993 at a dance camp, after which the group of friends began meeting regularly to keep the choreography fresh in their minds. The troupe?s dedication to the lindy hop and other jazz-era dances gradually blossomed into the club?s current calendar of professionally staffed classes, workshops, and dance events. Classes grouped by skill level progressively transform students with two left feet or three right toes into fleet-footed hoofers, imparting classic moves that help nurture a sense of rhythm and speed. Each week, students of all levels can take part in Savoy Mondays, a decade-long tradition, as DJs and a single trumpeting swan provide background music for dancers to sharpen their moves. And on the first and third Fridays of every month, the basement of the local Bagel Deli becomes the Blues Underground, where a free introductory blues lesson is followed by a late night of dancing.
