JoAnne, or “JoJo,” discovered her love of dance at the age of 5 through ballet, jazz, and gymnastics training. She founded Allure Dance Studio—which she considers to be a women-only club rather than a fitness center—to empower women with confidence while helping them make strides toward healthier lifestyles and toned physiques.
She and her team of instructors, which is made up of gymnasts, professional dancers, and aerial-silks performers, teach women to unleash their inner vixens while carving long and lean muscles with a diverse roster of pole-dance, sultry dance, and inventive fitness classes. Taught amid stage-like lighting and ambiance, gals boost their self-confidence and upper-body strength through seductive spins, choreography, and climbs. To prepare for class, ladies should wear a tank top, shorts, and high heels with an ankle strap in lieu of steel-toe boots. Instructors can help clients further hone their skills and overall fitness through customized workouts in one-on-one personal-training sessions and private lessons. Allure Dance Studio captures ladies at their most glamorous with boudoir photography and flirty party packages that teach women to strut their stuff with burlesque moves, classic striptease, belly dancing, and parakeet mating calls.
