Today's Groupon offers a pole-based exercise more effective than 1920s pole sitting, more energizing than pole-vaulting, and more sensual than polenta. For $50, you get five one-hour small group classes at Brass Ovaries Pole Dancing (up to a $125 value).
All of the Brass Ovaries Pole Dancing classes, which include pole dancing 101, core fitness, and group hoop, are taught by certified pole instructors. These skilled instructors will teach you the proper way to grip the pole, balance your body, build momentum, and maintain control during the 101 class. Students can graduate to advanced tricks such as inversions, twists, and thigh grips in less time than it takes The Flash to set up a conceptual art installation. Or, skip the sultry spins and tone and sculpt your bod while strengthening muscles and improving endurance in a core fitness class. Though it offers unusual options such as a spinning pole class and a men's pole-dancing class, Brass Ovaries Pole Dancing's perhaps most outstanding option is group hoop, which teaches people an aerial dance on a circular aluminum device that's suspended from the ceiling.
No matter which core-strengthening exercises you choose, you'll benefit from the intimate, one-on-one atmosphere of all Brass Ovaries Pole Dancing's classes—only one to three students participate in each course. Although many assume lotion, glitter, and heels are obligatory, they actually hinder the workout by not allowing you to mind-meld with your pole—please leave glitter and lotion at home. Call ahead to set up an appointment.
