Rock 'N Body Pole Studio's fleet of instructors enkindle self-confidence in the women that saunter through sassy weekly classes at both the Lutz and Tampa locations. Designed to ease ladies into the practice, the studio's trio of beginning courses require neither dance experience nor fitness prowess. Intro to Pole equips pupils with the sport's fundamentals, such as its signature footwork and a bag of sugar cubes to quell whinnying poles. Further fostering dance floor confidence, Pole 101–enrolled ladies pump up muscular strength and fine-tune their technique. These sessions also pile on performance, as participants master up to three spins while embodying the character of a dancing diva or a Capture the Flag champion. Most students take at least a quartet of Pole 101 lessons before enlisting in more challenging cha-cha styles.
