Sometimes, late at night, firemen slip into heels and dance with their poles, spinning, dipping, and stripping away cumbersome fireproof coats and burdensome notions of masculinity. Get an acrobatic fireman's workout with today's Groupon to Heart & Pole Dance & Fitness in Hermosa Beach. Choose between the following two options:
- For $12, you get an introductory pole-dance class or a Girlie Burlesque class (a $25 value). This Groupon is valid for any Introduction to Pole class, except for those scheduled on Tuesdays and Sundays.
- For $175, you get a private instructional dance party for up to ten people ($350 value). Parties are offered Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 4 p.m., and Sundays at 6 p.m.
At Heart & Pole, veteran, enthusiastic instructors lead classes of bodily mastery and sultry exploration. Designed as a pole primer, the Introduction to Pole-Dance class provides a taste-test of Heart & Pole's pole program, with a complete workout and teaching of basic tricks on the ever-elusive pole. The Girlie Burlesque class teaches students a routine that can easily be used at home, onstage, or at a home stage in the kitchen. There are three possible routines broken up by accessories: feather boas and stockings, pearls and gloves, and shirts, ties, fedoras, and Hulkamania foam fingers (check with Heart & Pole to confirm which routine will be taught in each class).
Heart & Pole also gives you a chance to gather your gals for a private get-together, to learn pole-dancing and burlesque. Held in H&P's gorgeous studio, the pros will tailor the instruction to your group, starting with simple walks and transitions, building to more challenging moves. Because of the staff's eclectic training in performance arts and aerobic methodologies, all of today's featured classes foster a fun, creative, and encouraging environment.
