Today's Groupon offers a pole-based exercise more effective than flapper-era pole sitting, more energizing than pole-vaulting, and more sensual than polenta. For $29, new students get four pole-dancing or Ladies Liberation classes at Dance 411 Studios (an up to $75 value). You can use all four on the same class, or spread them out across a variety of titillating tutorials. Please show up about 15 minutes before your first class so that you can fill out the studio's waiver and release, get your class card, and learn your classmates' names and birthstones. After that, pre-register for your remaining classes online.
If you're not used to being near a pole that doesn't have a plate spinning on top of it, Dance 411's instructors will encourage you to find the dancing goddess that saunters just beneath your surface with the studio's beginner drop-in pole-dance class. If you're concerned about thigh bruises, sign up instead for one of Dance 411's Ladies Liberation classes, designed to unleash your inner divalicious dancer and shimmy your body into shape. Learn the lap dance, strut your stuff in go-go stilettos, or undulate your core with belly dancing. If you ever get tired of being sexy, take a break with a nice, normal, sexiness-optional yoga session. See the full Groupon schedule here.
Whether you're looking to spicy up your love life or tone up your curves, Dance 411 will give you plenty of room to arch your back as if you were a sexy long-haired wildcat, not to be confused with the long-eared hedgehog, which is really more cute than sexy.
RollingOut.com calls Dance 411's 8,000-square-foot dance factory a "studio for the stars". Spacious studio spaces are equipped with appropriate dance surfaces to keep you safe while you move and groove free from the fear of having your toes nipped by a bloodthirsty Roomba. As you roll it, drop it, and rock it at Dance 411 Studios, you'll confuse your body by showing it a great time while secretly working it into wonderful shape (hot shape for 2010: rhombus).

Dance 411 Studios
Dance 411 Studios' instructors pause from stints as featured dancers in music videos, choreographers for award shows, and appearing on “So You Think You Can Dance” to helm the studio’s dance classes. The studio hosts a full range of traditional youth dance courses, with styles ranging from ballet and tap to hip-hop and breakdance. Instructors also offer these and other styles to adults with the Dimensions program, which teaches dance and fitness fundamentals through classes including Zumba, Adult Hip-Hop, Jazz, and Contemporary. The studio plays host to the Ladies Liberation program, with classes targeted toward adult female students, helping women get in shape and build confidence while accessing their sensual sides. Kids as young as 18 months can also develop social, mental, and motor skills during My First Step child development sessions.
