Working out can take a host of forms, from training for a marathon to supporting your weight during pole dancing in a penthouse. Pole Dance Studio focuses on the latter. Their 2,500-square-foot penthouse studio sprawls across the entire top floor of their building, complete with 13 poles and enormous windows that give stunning views of nature's brass pole, the humble tree. The classes that unfold in the urbane space cover the breadth of pole dance, kicking off with intro sessions on simple spins and floorwork. For more seasoned students, higher-level courses focus on more complex moves—Pole-Bellydance, for example, mixes serpentine figure-eights and shimmies with occasional pole spins. For special occasions, the studio hosts parties, where revelers learn pole routines, sip drinks from the roll-out bar, and don hats, wigs, and boas.
