Across three studios equipped with wooden dance-floors, Mary Lorraine's Dance Center's experienced instructors teach children and adults the intricate steps of a variety of dance styles. Classes include ballet, tap, jazz, and hip hop, and the center also offers pom, stretch, and strengthen. And to accommodate both recreational and competitive students, the center offers two levels of courses: those that emphasize a fun environment and encourage dance-related knock knock jokes and those that are intensive and focus on career training and competitive elements.
At Women's Exotic Workout, founder Adena draws on her more than 30 years of experience in exercise, dance, and performing arts to helm exotic and pole-dancing classes. Whirl through nine different exotic art forms, including belly dancing, tribal techniques, light gymnastics, chair work, and potato-sack escape acts, while muscles commit up to 130 beginner and intermediate moves to memory. The upbeat, supportive environment enlightens the senses and elevates ladies from timid to titillated over the course of 60–75 minutes. Yoga instruction is available for students of all levels, strengthening the core and improving flexibility so pliable protégés can perform the Y.M.C.A. solely with their legs. Women partaking in exotic and pole-dancing classes must be at least 19 years old or accompanied by an adult. See the website for the selection of classes.
Instructors at Omaha Ballroom lead drop-in group dance and fitness courses inside a studio with arched ceilings and a capacity of 100 people. Students partnered with spouses or doppelgangers glide through the steps of the waltz, fox trot, and tango during ballroom classes, or shake and strut to upbeat Latin tempos in salsa classes. Line-dancing and country-two-step classes equip individuals with the tools to impress at the next corporate hoedown, and swing lessons have dancers jitterbugging in either the East or West Coast style. Students can sidestep choreography to strengthen cores during mat Pilates, participate in Zumba’s gut-busting cardio sessions, and practice folding feet into fists in kickboxing classes.
