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 $25, you get a two-hour introductory fitness-pole-dancing workshop at Fit Tease in Rio Rancho (a $50 value). This women-only workshop commences twice a week on Mondays at 7 p.m. and Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m.
Certified personal trainer and group aerobics instructor Cindy Sandoval teaches up to 12 women of all fitness levels how to strengthen muscles and embrace their femininity by strutting and spinning artistically around a pole. During the workshop, dancers slide up and down poles while learning proper body and hand placement and pole tricks, such as airborne moves, basic spins, and firefighter impersonations. Sensual dance moves culminate in a short, sexy, core-strengthening routine, which propels women toward increased confidence and can-crushing thighs. Teachers advise students to wear comfortable, snug-fitting clothing that leaves arms and legs bare, and to avoid wearing moisturizers, oils, and jewelry. Six-inch heels are welcome, but not required. A registration and release form awaits students on the website and should be filled out prior to the workshop.
