Whether you're looking to enliven your love life or tone up your curves, New York Pole Dancing will have you arching your back as if you were a sexy, long-haired wildcat, not to be confused with the long-eared hedgehog, which is really more cute than sexy. Harness the power of your curvaceous body to build confidence and muscle tone. Intro to Pole Dancing teaches students a choreographed routine of basic pole-dancing techniques, while Climb-and-Spin courses instill and refine pole fundamentals such as grips, braces, hooks, spins, and sets. While sleepy poles take their daily nap, FIT classes such as Booty Camp, Stretch, Pilates Mat, and Anusara Yoga offer strength-focused, limbering workouts. 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.
Owner Wendy Traskos has consulted with Tony Award–winning director Jerry Mitchell and appeared on Germany's version of America's Next Top Model for her pole expertise. Wendy and her team of talented instructors pride themselves on their passion, 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.
- The instructors are all really passionate about what they do and it's completely contagious. – bhazey, Citysearch
- OK let me first start off with saying I absolutely LOVE NY Pole Dancing! I found them by chance online when I was organizing a ladies night private class for a few friends and myself. Well I enjoyed class so much that when I received an email newsletter I signed up for my first package. Not only is pole dancing the most intense full body workout I've ever had but it makes you feel sexy and strong at the same time. – Tiffany G., Yelp
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.
