What You'll Get
Merging the best aspects of being a firefighter and a circus acrobat creates a workout routine capable of starting fires and putting them out with a whirlwind of spicy spins. Generate a ring of fire by way of pole with today's Groupon to New York Pole Dancing, valid for the Kalamazoo location. Choose your preening fitness plan between the following two options:
- For $20, you get one Intro to Pole Dancing class and one Climb & Spin class (a $47 value).
- For $80, you get a one-hour private party for up to eight people (up to a $160 value).
Harness the power of your curvaceous body to build confidence and muscle tone. An Intro to Pole Dancing class combines elements of ballet, yoga, and striptease (though you won't be shedding clothes in your class) to strengthen your core and keep you limber. As the seductress embedded deep within makes her way to the surface, you'll engage rarely used muscles, sometimes resulting in day-after pangs of soreness and a confident saunter. After guests learn the sultry swaying basics, the Climb & Spin class builds on the grips, braces, and hooks from the intro session, adding bent-arm poses, floor work, and dance transitions to enhance each sensuous routine. Bachelorette attendants or ambidextrous pinch-hitters can practice their swings in seclusion with the one-hour private party, where up to eight ladies watch, learn, and then practice turning the basic intro routines. The swirling session emphasizes fun over technique, experience, or triple-lutz landings. Additional party guests may be added for $15 per person.
Owner Wendy Traskos and her team of talented instructors pride themselves on their patience, creativity, and expertise. Class sizes are kept small and intimate to make participants feel comfortable and allow more personal attention. After your classes, you'll achieve a firm understanding of the pole and its outer workings, as well as a basic mastery of its interior A.I. circuitry. A short, choreographed routine will be etched into your memory bank, and you'll be ready for the next level. Put that pole you had installed in case you needed quick access to your superhero cave to good use. Reserve your spot by booking online.

About NY Pole
Wendy Traskos's career as a pole-dancing icon began with one fateful spin. Impressed by the strength of self-expression she glimpsed in accomplished pole-dancers, she tried the art for herself and was hooked immediately, so much so she has been honing her spinning skills for 16 years. Now a self-taught professional, she channels her background as a certified personal trainer and gymnast to enhance her routines. Wendy’s fitness knowledge landed her celebrity clients, including Montel Williams and Mary J. Blige, and her proficiency on the pole led Germany's version of America's Next Top Model to feature her as a dancing expert.
At NY Pole studios, Wendy passes on her spiraling prowess through her original Climb and Spin method. She believes that students should build a foundation of muscle and a repertoire of techniques as they progress to more advanced pole tricks, which require them to shed all rock-climbing gear. Her classes accommodate varying skill levels with choreographed routines, motivating participants to practice recently learned grips, climbs, and transitions. The studios also offer fitness classes, private parties, and workshops led by guest instructors such as Cleo “The Hurricane,” also known as Miss Pole Dance Australia.
