Beyond what its name might suggest, Buttercup Pole Dance revels in all aspects of the hip-swiveling arts. Naturally, a highlight of the business is the pole-dance program, which is supervised by owner, competitive pole-dancer, and certified fitness instructor Sarah Jade. These classes are structured to accommodate all levels of pole-dance enthusiasts, from the uninitiated to the advanced—introductory sessions acquaint beginners with spins, transitions, and grip techniques, while four-week session classes are grouped by level to graduate students from basic routines to upside-down inversions.
For a more portable pastime, the center teams up with Michelle Garner, owner of Happy2BHooping LLC, who calls on her background in belly dancing and her Hoola-Fit trainer license to lead students through artistic and heart-pumping hula-hoop fitness routines. The center also brings out students’ inner vixens in sultry chair-dance and exotic-dance choreography, along with stimulating sweat glands and dancing shoes in Latin-inspired Zumba classes.
