Vegas Stripper University’s pole professors hail from seasoned pole-dancing backgrounds, sharing their saucy techniques with fledgling shimmiers through classes and private parties. The instructors choreograph moves for dancers of all sizes, shapes, and experience levels, and the studios equip each student with her own pole, where she'll learn to perfect spins, inversions, and flag-pole-sitting strategies. Solo or group dancers can choose their session’s degree of difficulty, ranging from basic to advanced pole and lap dancing. Vegas Stripper University’s instructors also help gals fine-tune heel-clad moves in stiletto sessions and teach homebodies without in-house poles to perform a sassy dance using basic furniture. Private classes reserve studio space for added comfort, where participants may enjoy their own provided beverages. After completing their session, graduates receive a take-home diploma to prove their pole prowess to friends and open-minded shoe shiners.

The Ballroom of Reno champions dance as the art of human connection rather than the art of winning medals. As a nonprofit organization, its lessons and proceeds aim to benefit the community rather than training competitors. Its focus on choreography's social side has led to a schedule rife with free beginner's seminars, fundraisers, and weekly themed parties, during which the 3,400-square-foot studio boasts an ethereal display of mini lights.
While cavorting on the springy floor, pupils who range from novices to experts might rehearse moves from a variety of Latin, ballroom, and contemporary styles, including swing, tango, rumba, and foxtrot. Private sessions hone in on specific techniques, whereas group classes enable guests to twirl, jive, and stare awkwardly without ceasing with various partners. The staff encourages regulars to combine both types of education during the Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday parties designed to help them reap maximum enjoyment and poise from their practice.
Ms. Bernadette approaches dancing from both an artistic and a fitness standpoint. As a dancer and ordained minister, she recognizes the spiritual and aesthetic beauty of graceful movements. As a personal trainer, she knows that performing those movements can be a great workout. At her studio, she combines dance classes with fitness classes, including Pilates and yoga, and teaches them with the goal of strengthening limbs and increasing students' flexibility.
At Ballroom Addiction, the staff members' credentials are as impressive as their synchronized steps. For example, director Ron Yee has won two championships at United States Ballroom Championships events, and hip-hop teacher Gene Lopez has worked with celebrities from Michael Bublé to Flavor Flav. Their impressive resumés don't imply exclusivity, however—guests of all skill levels, from beginners to aspiring award winners, are welcome to rehearse on their three floating floors. Along with other trained instructors, they draw from years of competitive experience to school students on four main categories of dance: American Smooth, International Standard, American Rhythm, and International Latin.
These categories cover several styles, including fox trot, waltz, swing, tango, rumba, and cha-cha. The instructors impart poise in both private and group sessions, as well as coach pupils in social dance sessions that cover nightclub moves and country western choreography. To supplement lessons, instructors host Friday-night parties that allow protégés to practice their form while mingling with other students. Wedding-dance seminars coordinate romantic routines set to the couple's favorite song, or, for more complex performances, the sound of every guest clinking a fork against a wine glass.
Running on treadmills, lifting weights, and running on treadmills while lifting weights aren't the only ways to get in shape. At Polecats Aerial Fitness, instructors help women participate in a fun activity while boosting confidence with exhilarating fitness classes, which take place on a pole, in the air, or on the ground. Pole fitness classes blend spins, kicks, and balancing techniques to strengthen and tone core muscles. Aerial silk classes, meanwhile, challenge exercisers to perform acrobatic twirls and flips while holding onto silk materials hanging from the ceiling. During aerial hoops classes, students practice artistic, Cirque du Soleil-like routines with giant hoops and a partner. The women's fitness studio rounds out its schedule with bikini boot camp classes and strength and conditioning sessions for dancers.
