Pole-based exercise is more effective than 1920s pole sitting, more energizing than pole-vaulting, and more sensual than polenta. Exercise your vertical fitness with today's Groupon to Balera Studio. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get a one-hour introductory pole-fitness course (a $30 value).
- For $60, you get a one-hour pole party for up to 10 people (a $129 value).
During Balera Studio's muscle-building pole-fitness courses, all ages, skill levels, and body types are welcome to learn the fine art of holding oneself aloft alongside a slender, metal pole. During the acrobatic, aerobic workout, pole swirlers learn basic climbing and holding techniques in a fun, friendly, and supportive environment—harnessing the power of curvaceous bodies in order to build confidence and muscle tone. Combining elements of ballet, yoga, and striptease (though nothing comes off except shoes and excess shoes) pole fitness strengthens cores and keeps muscles limber. As the seductress embedded deep within makes her way to the surface, rarely used muscles will be engaged, sometimes resulting in day-after pangs of soreness and a confident saunter.
Or for a gymnastic twist on girls' night out, opt for the one-hour pole party for up to 10 people, in which an instructor teaches party-goers sultry pole-dancing moves, ideal for bachelorette polecats or flag impersonators. Be sure to call ahead to reserve a pole in class or to set up a party.
Balera Fitness Studio
The instructors at Balera Fitness Studio assure future pole-dancing students that, although they will be engaging in a style of dance that’s known for its come-hither maneuvers, "Nothing comes off but your shoes!" That's because they hone in on the unique fitness aspects of pole dancing, guiding students through exhilarating spins and limbering stretches that improve strength, balance, and flexibility. They welcome students of all ages and body types to their fun, sweat-manufacturing workouts. At private parties, they teach core-firming moves to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays, future marriages, and Stop Sign Impersonation Day.
