Recent studies show that people who dance tend to possess above-average strength, endurance, and flexibility, as well as a significantly lower risk of getting served. Hone this vital skill with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get four ladies-only dance classes of your choice at Express MiE (a $60 value). This Groupon is not valid for Pole-ah-Tease classes.
Classes at Express MiE are designed for women who shy away from shaking it outside the comfort of their own bedrooms or biodomes. The females-only facility aims to boost confidence and raise heart rates with an array of 45-minute esteem-building classes (a $15 value each). Those with two left feet can shake and shed a leg with classes such as I Could Have Danced All Night and Video Vixen, or get some guidance in good grace with Tu-Tu for You. Fitness-centric dance classes, such as GI Jane (a sexy dance boot camp) and Belly-licious, tone muscles and improve posture. They also offer a fun alternative to boring workouts involving pull-ups, push-ups, or rigorously milking cows. Use your Groupon to perfect moves in a familiar style or try something new, such as Bollywood Babes or Salsa Pump.
Classes are available several days a week at a variety of times, making it easy to find a dance style to suit your lifestyle. Before pointing your toes, point your eyes at the schedule for a full rundown of upcoming classes.

- Ever hear yourself say, "I can dance and sweat all night but can't jog for 15 seconds. What's up with that?" This new dance fitness studio for women, tucked behind Trader Joe's in the Tempe Square shopping center, makes that question moot. – Phoenix New Times
- When I started the class I thought "oh this is going to be easy" but after the hour I was there sweating my hiney off having a great time doing it. – Tiffany B., Yelp
Dance can be healing. Studio founder Christie knows this better than anyone, having turned to sensual dance as an outlet after being diagnosed with a brain tumor. Her newfound practice not only set her on a healthier path, it also made her feel more confident and feminine as well. She was hooked, and opened Express MiE to share that same feeling with other women.
Today, Christie and her staff start each of Express MiE’s sultry fitness classes with a guided meditation. That’s because the studio prioritizes finding and trusting inner beauty over learning snazzy pole tricks. And while the moves are certainly sensual, they’re inspired less by the promiscuity of romance novels or flirtatious barbershop poles than by techniques from ballet, ballroom, and belly dancing. This winning combination led the Phoenix New Times to name the studio Best Place to Learn to Pole Dance in 2010, noting that the instructors “are serious about developing core strength and six-pack abs by wrapping and gyrating around poles and cheering each other on.”
