Pennsylvania Pole Academy builds strong bodies with female-focused exercise routines and pampers them with boutique cosmetics and tanning, earning the women's-only studio a spotlight on Fox-29 news.

In addition to teaching pole-gripping techniques, Intro to Pole Dancing strengthens the core muscles needed to perform fancy spins and upside-down moves in intermediate classes.

Technique, performance, artistry, and life skills. Those are the pillars on which Dance Arts Conservatory molds it students into fully formed dancers. Even the youngest ballet students here start their paths with technique, learning pas de basque and three-point turns before moving on to more complex moves.

The school's large class slate also includes fitness-based dance classes—such as Zumba and Red Hot Dance Fitness—which combine energetic dance steps with upbeat songs to keep classes fun.
