Classes at Dance It Off keep beginner and intermediate dancers moving to diverse beats. For instance, Zumba, cardio dance funk and musical theater Broadway dance pay homage to two American-born genres. The new cardio world class pulls dance moves from countries all over the globe to create its fusion routines. And in addition to dance, the studio also offers strictly fitness classes such as yoga flow, Piloxing, and barre fitness.
At Spinarella, whirling instructors elucidate the art of gyration during lively calorie-blasting pole-fitness classes and parties in their all-female fitness studio. Each of their one-hour classes is capped at 15 ladies to ensure adequate bonding between pole and dancer through small talk and shared admiration of neoclassical architecture. Students of all shapes and sizes can also perfect their come-hither moves during classes that focus on off-the-pole dances and incorporate silks or lyras, which are hoop-shaped perches suspended from the ceiling.
Dance 411 Studios' instructors pause from stints as featured dancers in Justin Bieber music videos and on MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew to helm the studio’s range of dance classes. The schedule aims to incorporate something for everyone, from the youthful whimsy of children's tumbling classes to the practical firefighting experience of adult pole dancing. Vibrant orange and red walls add energy to the individual studios, and expansive windows reflect off gleaming hardwood floors that echo stomps of students and shadows trying to keep up.
At the women’s only Glitter’s Fitness Club, visitors tone their physiques while unleashing their inner vixens during a choice of 22 classes per week. Instructors guide students through yoga and Piloxing, a fusion of Pilates and boxing, and helm sultry Zumba dance parties and Sexy Chair classes, during which students learn to look seductive while building a wooden rocking chair.
At Tango Evolution, passionate, experienced dance-floor denizens whisk students of all ages and shoe sizes through six hip-swiveling sessions of Argentina's sultriest export. Luxuriate in risqué rhythms and fiery footwork via one of three class series: walking and turning, musicality and rhythm, or leading the cross and ochos. Class sizes range from 20 to 40 students, and dance partners switch throughout the lesson, which means tango newbies need not cajole their spouses, roommate, or rhythmically inclined patent lawyer into partaking. Students will also receive 50% off one of Tango Evolution’s milongas, monthly tango dance parties in which footwork fledglings can flutter across the floor, displaying their blossoming tango talents and impressive wingspan in a lively, sociable atmosphere.
