Instructors work on each student?s individual strengths or weaknesses during private lessons, restoring two left feet with two deft feet in time for social-dance parties where guests can mingle and try out their new moves. The studio also holds Zumba classes designed to increase heart rates for a cardio routine more effective than imitating a hamster on a public-park carousel.

When Lisa Stark's quest for a sensual, laid-back exercise class turned up nothing, she took matters into her own hands. To forge her ideal workout, which is a balance of sexy sizzle and athletic toning, Stark researched popular dance-fitness styles, documented choreography at local clubs, and even enlisted a former exotic dancer to teach her how to kick, saunter, and fill out tax forms in a sensual manner. The months of studying paid off?today, Lisa shares her wit, warmth, and fitness regimen with troupes of women at The Exotic You. Ladies of all fitness levels gather for classes that teach a complete routine of sensual dance moves, checking negative body-talk at the door and summoning their inner vixen out with slow leg extensions and passionate hip rolls.

Ecdysiast, a modern pole-dancing studio that derives its name from ancient Rome, comingles the sleek techniques of modern fitness with the atavistic impulses of dance, resulting in a fun, social, and physical exhibition of the body’s beauty. A staff that includes certified personal trainers instructs a schedule of classes to accommodate most skill and fitness levels. During a one-hour class of fewer than seven, pupils position themselves before the studio’s floor-to-ceiling mirrors—cut at intervals with white, flowing drapery—to gaze at their reflection staring back at them as it sidles next to their own, individual, 16-foot golden-hued pole. The introductory Taster class dips newbie toes into the rippling waters of pole dancing with beginner moves, choreography, and floor work. At the instructor’s behest, students in the eight-week course will spin, climb, invert, and plane their bodies parallel to the ground in an act of self-levitation unattainable without the use of hundreds of helium balloons. The 90-minute party class packs similar routines and equal energy, but caters to the custom needs of the group, be they bachelorette, birthday, or a girls' night out.

After several years of suffering through classes filled with tweens, or missing sessions because of rigid scheduling, Evie Graham started her own dance studio. At Vega Dance Lab, everyone from people who have never strapped on groove shoes to seasoned students aged 16 and older can school their left feet or untalented dancing bears in nine dances on a drop-in basis. Shuffle-savvy instructors school pupils in proper ballet technique, burlesque-inspired choreography, and hip-hop cabaret, where dancers perform hip-hop moves with a cabaret-inspired flair. Teachers also integrate dance into intensive workouts such as Cardio Funk, an exercise regimen set to hip-hop music, or Tease & Tone, a session divided between 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of dance. Lessons kick off six days a week in Vega Dance Lab?s spacious, graffiti-decorated warehouse where students can test their latest moves by dancing out of the way of oncoming forklifts.
