Pole dancing offers a pole-based exercise more effective than 1920s pole sitting, more energizing than pole-vaulting, and more sensual than polenta. Reap pole-based benefits with today’s Groupon at Pole & Body on West 96th Street. Choose between the following options:
- For $40, you get any four mix-and-match pole-dancing classes (an $80 value)
- For $24, you get any four specialty Pilates, yoga, belly-dancing, or burlesque classes (a $48 value)
Pole & Body offers a diverse class schedule with both seductive dance and soothing Pilates and yoga options. Pole-dancing classes combine cardio, flexibility, and strength training in a fun, sultry lineup of flowing, pole-centric flourishes. Small class sizes ensure individual attention, resulting in proper form during impromptu street-sign shimmies. Levels ranging from novice to goddess accommodate deities of all dancing abilities.
Specialty classes engage rarely used muscles to promote body control, balance, and grace. Hips swivel in the meditative belly-dancing class that boosts body awareness and tones gyrating figures. Burlesque classes infuse torsos with seductive choreography from two different eras: classic pinup and a more modern style. Develop a molten core with tamer moves in Pilates mat classes, or let heat of the temperate variety warm up middle muscles in the upcoming exotic hot yoga class.
