The first televised presidential debate was so polarized that it descended into vicious squabbling but was then resolved by the first televised presidential dance-off. Get political with today's Groupon: for $45, you get five drop-in classes at Exotic Curves Pole Fitness Studio in Brooklyn (up to a $150 value).
Silvery poles line Exotic Curves Pole Fitness Studio, beckoning students of all stripes to fine-tune their hand and footwork. A saucy sextet of instructors guides students through a stacked seven-day schedule designed to bulk up upper-body strength, torch calories, and ignite inner confidence. Pole Fitness classes teach the fundamentals of the cylindrical cha-cha—climbing, spinning, and differentiating between poles and rainspouts. By donning sassy costumes and sauntering to funky tunes, Pole Flirt pupils can delve further into performance. Exotic Curves also piques fitness through exercise classes such as Zumba and Booty Poppin’ Pole, whose routines are designed to target and tone glutes. Depending on each session’s style and instructor, the studio can accommodate from 10 to 30 students, or roughly one professional rugby team.
Exotic Curves’ fuchsia studio exudes femininity as glowing golden lights reflect off a legion of metallic poles. The studio’s wall-to-wall mirrors reflect routines and politely clear their throats when they need to be fed and watered. For each session, patrons should don shorts, a T-shirt or a tank top, and a choice of stilettos, high-heeled boots, or bare feet.

The fitness instructors at Exotic Curves Pole Fitness Studio create design and lead sultry pole-dance classes in an effort to boost good health, chisel strong physiques, and bolster self-confidence. Owner and pole instructor Stephanie Mancuso, a dancer since age 7, forged the swirl-inducing dance studio close to her hometown, fusing her love for dancing, her enthusiasm for helping others, and her passion for vintage fireman poles. Utilizing knowledge of a variety of dance techniques—such as Zumba, belly dancing, and chair dancing—the studio’s staff provides a number of steamy outlets to foster streamlined silhouettes and release pent-up energy. Stephanie and her staff also host special events, such as bachelorette parties for brides-to-be and retirement shindigs for nostalgic polecats.
