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 $20, you get two pole-dancing or pole boot camp classes at Cherry Blossom Pole Dancing Studio (a $50 value).
The chic pole-dancing palace offers a fun and encouraging environment for newcomers and veterans alike to improve upon their pole-swinging, pole-climbing, and pole-sensually spinning arts. Cherry Blossom offers seven different levels of dancing classes in its colourful great room, which comes equipped with vibrant décor, 11 shiny poles, and an expert instructor ready to show you the moves. Not only will you increase your sexiness through osmosis and the help of a few slick new swings, you'll also build muscle strength, work your core, and tone and define your body's luscious curves and sexy sharp angles. If a hard-core cardio workout is more your style, opt for the pole boot camp class, which integrates pole-dancing moves and strength training to help improve your overall fitness level. All of Cherry Blossom's classes are limited to 10 students or less, so you can ensure you'll receive the personal attention your formerly neglectful math teacher never gave you.
Cherry Blossom's bright and flirty space boasts a pink and green colour theme and is a welcoming and low-pressure environment for women of all shapes, sizes, genders, and pizza-topping preferences to sweat, swing, and shake. Call ahead to register, and check out the FAQs to prepare.
You must take your second class within 30 days of attending your first. Participants must be 18 or older.

Andrea Harper wears many hats, but they are all connected by a common thread—or pole, as the case may be. She is a certified personal trainer, nutrition and wellness specialist, and pole-fitness instructor, whose fascination with physical health centers around empowering spins. As the owner of Cherry Blossom Pole Dancing Studio, Andrea passes on the moves that made her one of Canada's top 16 pole dancers at Miss Pole Dance Canada 2010, leading women of all backgrounds through lessons designed to strengthen their bodies, self-esteem, and sense of rhythm. During pole-dancing classes, she and her team of instructors take pupils from the fundamentals to advanced techniques, such as convincing your brain that the floor is actually the ceiling. She limits class sizes to 7-12 students within the hot-pink-and-green studio, ensuring that everyone is able to pair up with a pole. The pole isn't the only gravity-flouting tool at Andrea's disposal, though; she also schedules courses that rely on aerial silks and hoops.
To put a personal touch on twirls, she offers parties replete with dance routines and fun props for all occasions. These soirees readily accommodate large groups and were suggested by the Ottawa Citizen as one of the top three creative bachelorette-party ideas.
