Dancing in 6-inch heels is not only a great way to feel sexy, it can also pierce sidewalk jelly donuts, making it easier for passersby to slurp up the filling. Feel great and open up pastry-wells with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a four-session package of either DivaHip-Hop or DivaStrip classes at DivaDance Company (a $67 value), named the 2009 Best of New York Dance Class by amNewYork.
DivaDance Company's all-levels classes, led by experienced instructors, create a community of hard-charging professional women who let loose with steamy steps. Students spin and pop splits like the MTV, BET, and Lifetime music-video stars. DivaStrip keeps it classy and clothed while developing major muscle groups and allure over bassy hip-hop beats and pulsing rock anthems. These Pussycat Dolls–inspired sessions use chairs, boas, pythons, hats, and scarves to get you sexy while sweating and keep you warm during indoor snowstorms.
Check the schedule to see which upcoming four-week workshop fits your schedule. Classes are typically during Monday through Thursday evening hours throughout spring, with sessions set to Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, and a DivaStrip re-creation of Paula Abdul's famous "Cold Hearted Snake" video that is certain to shake neighborhood cats from the rafters. If you're not grooving on either dance option, the full value of this Groupon can be applied to the cost of private strip and bachelorette parties.
Three Yelpers give DivaDance Company a five-star average:
- I would highly recommend these classes to gals wanting to spice up a bachelorette party or just for a fun way to meet other women who enjoy dancing and don't take themselves too seriously. There are women of all sizes, shapes and dance experience. – Dinah H., 3/25/10
Over the past decade, DivaDance Company has helped women boost their energy, confidence, and sass levels with fast-paced dance classes. During the signature DivaDance sessions, enthusiastic instructors guide students through hip-hop choreography set to contemporary songs, including Beyonce's most recent album. For a more intense workout, try the Dance and Sweat Class; meanwhile, the studio's Diva Strip class teaches sexy floor-dance moves.
The studio doubles as private-party space for birthdays, bachelorette parties, or concession speeches. The party package includes guided dancing, champagne, and sweets.
