Lotus Arts Studio's classes are a medley of swinging hips, frolicking feet, and flittering fingers. Owner Lauren Haas, a professional belly dancer, shares her Egyptian-style training with students who are interested in belly dancing and possess their own bellies. Highly skilled yoga instructors help yogis and neophyte benders pose, stretch, and sweat while Zumba, the Latin-inspired cardio dance class, spicies up stale workout routines and Bollywood classes fuse classical Indian dance styles with popular Western styles. At Lotus, wallflowers learn to gleefully waltz, tango, cha-cha, and bunny hop onto dance floors, as classes are ideal for individuals with no dance experience or more than one left foot. Registration is required and classes convene once a week. Check out the class schedule for a full list of classes and times.

Internationally known burlesque star Lola van Ella captains VanElla Studios, home of burlesque-infused dance and cardio classes that are “pure fun,” according to St. Louis Magazine. Clients can build confidence and performance repertoires in a panoply of body-positive classes, such as Burlesque Basics 1, which covers moves such as the shimmy, the bump-and-grind, and boa-wielding, which teaches guests how to seductively fashion a lasso out of a boa constrictor to reach coconuts for survival. For a higher-octane workout, rug-cutters with some dance experience can enroll in the hip-hop sequence, whose fast-paced choreography matches a soundtrack of rap and R & B tracks. In each class, an average of 10 students follow in the footsteps of instructors with professional dance experience.
