Pole dancing originated by accident, when an ecstatic mob of free-form dancers blindly collided with a parade of jugglers on 15-foot stilts. Juggle the benefits of dance and fitness with today's Groupon: for $20, you get one sampler pole-dancing workshop and two pole-dancing classes for women at Lifesource Yoga (a $45 value).
Pole-dance fitness at Lifesource Yoga combines seductive shimmying with fun fitness exercises in a comfortable, women-only environment. The sampler pole-dancing workshop, held two or three Saturdays a month, introduces women to the fundamentals of cabaret and burlesque dancing, mixing saucy accents such as glove-, stocking-, and contact lens–removal techniques with calorie burning workouts and pole dancing. Supportive, experienced teachers lead classes through the leg-toning chair work of Cardio Cabaret, the bumps and grinds of Burlesque, and enticing floor work moves such as the "clock" and the "flirt." The two-hour long workshop furthers the hip-shaking revelry, familiarizing pupils with the personality of the pole during Pole Fitness Level 1. Students saunter through spins, climbs, and sits while improving flexibility, and shaking off calories.(https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/ASP/home.asp?studioid=5126) for class times.
