With the rise in popularity of sexy workout classes, dancing with chairs and poles isn't just for lonely barbers anymore. Cut a sensual rug with today's Groupon at Ophidia Studio. Choose between the following classes:

  • For $35, you get five pole-dancing classes ($70 value).
  • For $20, you get five chair burlesque classes ($40 value).

Pole-dance instructors Allison Holley and Emily Carpenter bring years of dance and gymnastics experience to their classes, which cater to all strength and skill levels. Beginner classes stress muscle training, basic jumps, and static moves, and more advanced instruction introduces acrobatic lifts, spins, and inversions that leave troupers toned, trained, and liberated from gravity’s oppressive reign. Ophidia's chair dancers hone their craft under burlesque baroness Absinthia Verre of the Red Light Variety Show. With emphasis on prop use and artful titillation, chair lessons equip dancers with moves readymade for seducing significant others and dashing wingbacks with troubled pasts.

Ophidia Studio

Pick up a copy of Boise Weekly, flip open the Idaho Statesman, or tune in to Boise State Public Radio, and you might catch Ophidia Studio’s owner, Allison Holley, spreading the gospel of pole dancing. "It feels fun," she told Boise State Public Radio's Scott Ki. "It's kind of like playing on a jungle gym, and adults don't get that chance." Along with a coterie of experienced instructors, Allison casts off the bad rap of an activity that she says some see as "demeaning or degrading" in pole-dancing classes that build fitness and self-confidence in a playful atmosphere. Inside a hot-pink studio peppered with stationary and spinning poles, Allison and her crew walk students of all levels through a number of creative pole-dancing moves, beginning with spins and working up to inversions, choreography routines, and ceiling-fan impersonations.

Their expertise doesn’t stop there, though. The instructors also offer an arsenal of other sensual classes such as belly-dancing, hoop dancing, poi fire dancing, and Curvesque, which helps whittle waists and define the feminine form through fluid, dance-inspired movements. They also offer the more-traditional fitness classes of Zumba and body blast, along with yoga and its elevated counterpart—aerial yoga, which suspends students in a fabric sling hung from the ceiling.
