At Elegant Body Pilates, professional fitness and dance instructor Jacqueline Valdez imparts empowering pole-dancing and burlesque moves, designed to tone figures and bolster confidence. During pole-dancing classes, ladies learn the fundamentals of pole twirls and movements in a women-only studio, free of spectators and wayward hovercrafts. Sassy curricula begin with warm-ups and strength training to prime muscles for beginner moves before moving on to pole-fitness basics. Afterward, dancers learn a complete routine that they can reproduce on at-home dance poles or living-room telephone poles.
Alternatively, students can shimmy sensuously during burlesque-fitness classes, which firm muscles and boost body awareness with graceful movements. After a warm-up and strength training, the instructor leads small classes through a choreographed routine that combines jazz, ballet, and modern dance. Burlesque dance routines incorporate a scarf or a boa, which patrons must bring from home or spontaneously will into being.
