Before pole-dancing classes, flirty fitness was limited to holding hands with a Stairmaster or romancing Jack LaLanne. Learn more seductive exercises with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $35 for three pole-dancing or burlesque-dancing classes (a $160 value)
- $65 for six pole-dancing or burlesque-dancing classes (a $320 value)
Pole- and burlesque-dancing classes fuse sultry dance moves with a conditioning workout to help women of all fitness levels lose weight and tone muscle while building their confidence. In a private studio, professional trainer and dancer Jacqueline Valdez maintains a safe, supportive environment. She takes ladies through basic pole and floor moves in the pole-dancing class, eventually building to a full routine. Alternatively, the burlesque class focuses on the tradition's more polished style, combining jazz, ballet, and modern dance. Classes are available throughout the week and limited to a small number of students—contact Elegant Body Pilates directly for exact times.
Buyers must choose between all pole-dancing or burlesque classes. Participants should bring a yoga mat to each class and wear a tank top and shorts—burlesque classes also require a scarf or boa—and avoid wearing lotions or jewelry. Classes are performed barefoot, though students may wear heels as they progress. Jacqueline will offer additional training at a discounted rate after buyers complete their Groupon classes, as well as 10% off pole-dancing or burlesque parties with the mention of this Groupon.
