BeSpun’s seasoned staff of national pole-dance competitors and professional dancers teaches tyros to twirl down 18-foot poles in one-off classes, progressive workshop series, or laidback dance parties. Up to 20 students in each one-hour beginner’s pole-dancing class can practice stretches, basic spins, and sexy high-fives under the tutelage of two teachers. The eight-week workshop allows groups of 10 beginning students to study pole-dancing fundamentals in-depth, meeting once or twice each week to perform increasingly complicated tricks, dismounts, and hissing-polecat impressions. Although BeSpun’s dancers are never fully nude, beginners should wear fitted workout clothes that leave arms and legs uncovered; clients are free to prance barefoot or in high heels.
Alternatively, friends can celebrate an upcoming marriage or trip to the firehouse with a 90-minute pole-dancing party for up to eight people. Revelers can bring music and food, don a favorite pair of high heels, and strut or spin sexily to relax with their friends. BeSpun’s 30,000-square-foot studio bathes spinners of all stripes in flattering red light and a steady flow of compliments from friendly pairs of stiletto heels.
