Earth, an alluring enigma, is balanced in the void of space upon two poles over which it sensuously spins and ineffably shimmies. Harness the power of your polarity with today's Groupon: for $39, you get your choice of a five-week dance class series or a five-class punch card at Exotic Fitness Dance in Charlottesville (up to a $95 value).
Exotic Fitness Dance's encouraging instructors coax grace and confidence from shimmying students with five-week dance class series and drop-in classes. During the Introduction to Pole series, instructors showcase basic grips and spins, always keeping one foot on the floor for safe progressions that tone muscles and tighten cores. The Burlesque I series coaches gams in sultry strutting techniques, outfitting attendees with gloves, feather boas, and the ability to actually make onlookers' eyes pop out of their heads. Each set of classes culminates in a short choreographed routine that incorporates newly mastered maneuvers.
Patrons can also sate boogie cravings with scheduled drop-in classes. Stretch and Strength courses elongate limbs for all-over toning and flexibility, and Belly Dancing I imparts arm and hand movements to offset rippling midsection isolations and to fend off overly flirtatious pythons. Most classes accommodate five to ten guests, ensuring that pupils receive personalized tips for perfecting empowering twirls.
