What You'll Get
After crocodators, poor fitness is the number-one cause of the night-scaries. With today's Groupon, turn the nightmare about ending up bare bellied in biology class into a dream of goddess-like energy and strong, snake-charming abs. For $25, you get four belly-dance classes with Lotus Bellydance (up to a $55 value) at Pro Trainer Fitness inside the Ballantyne Hotel.
Lotus offers a fun and supportive workout environment for women of all shapes and sizes. You needn't have a svelte tummy to engage in belly dance's ancient arts; in fact, it's an excellent way to tone tired torsos and increase overall core strength. Classes with Lotus's instructors offer a private space to learn belly rolls, hip pops, shoulder shimmies, and candle-arms, among other animated inanimate-appendage techniques. The schedule is set to run classes continuously in four-week sessions; feel free to mix and match times to meet your schedule's needs. Options are available for untrained tenderlings and spicily seasoned belly veterans alike. At the end of every four-class session, one free session of Intro to Bellydance is offered, to touch upon the fundamental fundamentals.
In addition to being an engaging physical activity, belly dance is a form of martial art, though it is only used for combat at key points in the Mayan Long Count Calendar (also in an Oscar-winning film starring Sandra Bullock). Whatever your motivation, sate it with a session from Lotus Bellydance. In your free time, catch a performance from the instructors, who perform as the dance troupe Spirit of the Lotus.
