Merge the best aspects of being a firefighter and a circus acrobat with today's Groupon. For $20, you get an hour and forty-five minute drop-in pole dancing class at Divine Movement: Pole Dancing Fitness for Women. Your body will flex with all new muscular potential and your ability to impress coworkers will shoot through the roof, puncturing your duct work, which will need to be repaired by an experienced HVAC technician.
Whether you're looking to spicy up your love life or toney up your curves, Divine Movement will have you arching your back like a sexy long-haired she-wolf, not to be confused with the long-haired fainting goat, which is really more cute than sexy. Build confidence and muscle tone under the tutelage of owner Angi Cardwell and her divine staff. Pole dancing combines elements of ballet, yoga, and striptease (though you won't be shedding clothes in your class) to strengthen your core and keep you as limber as a newspaper soaked in expeller-pressed canola oil. As the seductress embedded deep within makes her way to the surface, you'll engage rarely used muscles, sometimes resulting in day-after pangs of soreness and a confident saunter.
More exciting and more pole-oriented than bouncing a tennis ball against the garage, pole dancing will turn all of the poles in your abode into shiny opportunities to scoff in the face of physics and tantalize strangers who came in through the first floor window you left open when you were cooking with garlic. Plus you'll learn moves that will get you into and out of most highway speeding tickets. Class meets Thursdays and Fridays from 4 p.m. to 5:45 p.m..

Divine Movement Pole Dancing
From Divine Movement's twin studios in Kirkland and Seattle, co-owners Angi Cardwell and Jennifer Patenaude oversee a sultry suite of pole-dance and boudoir-dance classes set to the sounds of heart-pumping rock, indie, and hip-hop. Though not specifically a workout regimen, the floor-based and pole-vaulted routines are high-energy maneuvers that help to boost confidence and create a positive self-image. Six-week series cater to beginners and intermediate seductresses, and more advanced drop-in sessions cover holds, inverted handstands, and midair tea service. The dress code calls for comfortable yoga-style wear and bare feet or legwarmers.
