In the Victorian era, people made their cores look tight by wearing corsets, which doubled as bulletproof vests during pistol duels. Get ammo-repellent abs with today's Groupon for dance classes at The Mind, Body & Soul Studio in Staten Island. Choose between the following options:
- For $19, you get five belly-dance classes (a $50 value).
- For $45, you get one pole-dancing workshop on Friday, June 17 at 8 p.m. or Friday, August 12 at 8 p.m. (a $100 value).
The Mind, Body & Soul Studio’s brand-new location hosts a bevy of heart-pumping dance classes that firm up bodies in a fun, upbeat atmosphere. Although most known for its midriff movements, belly-dancing classes stress isolated movements of various muscle groups, including arms and legs, and, like a strong legal defense, can be complexly choreographed or flexibly freeform, incorporating seductive hip scarves and veils. Pole-dancing workshops combine pole-centric dance routines with sexy floor steps and dance moves, much like the celebrations at Santa's workshop on December 26. Classes only hold 10–15 boogiers, so be sure to call ahead and reserve a spot.
The Mind, Body & Soul Studio
The lime-green and grape-purple walls perfectly echo the vivacious spirit of classes at The Mind, Body & Soul Studio. Instructors lead everything from boot camps and core-strengthening workouts to Zumba and belly dancing, and the intimately sized space fosters a supportive rapport in virtually every session. These classes help attendees live healthier and more active lives by incorporating cardio work instead of just showing them places to abandon vegetables on the edge of town.
