The fitness instructors at Exotic Curves Pole Fitness Studio create design and lead sultry pole-dance classes in an effort to boost good health, chisel strong physiques, and bolster self-confidence. Owner and pole instructor Stephanie Mancuso, a dancer since age 7, forged the swirl-inducing dance studio close to her hometown, fusing her love for dancing, her enthusiasm for helping others, and her passion for vintage fireman poles. Utilizing knowledge of a variety of dance techniques—such as Zumba, belly dancing, and chair dancing—the studio’s staff provides a number of steamy outlets to foster streamlined silhouettes and release pent-up energy. Stephanie and her staff also host special events, such as bachelorette parties for brides-to-be and retirement shindigs for nostalgic polecats.
