Pole Passion Fitness schools its students in a seductive, total-body workout style that tightens the core, strengthens the arms and legs, and instills confidence in each dancer. Led by experienced pole dancer and female-empowerer Shawn Sanders, experienced instructors seek to mold students of all shapes, sizes, and skill levels into graceful purveyors of the pirouette. With each lesson, dancers work to build a repertoire of moves that revolves around sultry walks, princess-to-goddess twirls, and freestyle improvisation such as flirty poses and comedic riffs on the perils of air travel. On its YouTube channel, Pole Passion Fitness airs videos that capture the beginner class, as well as the more advanced open and team sessions.
Pole gurus hold court in a modern dance studio where an assemblage of poles reflect twirls and shimmies in rippling, wavy mirrors that hang on a tapestry of pink walls whose pigment was crushed from retired flamingo lawn ornaments. Groupon holders can choose from three scheduled class times: Mondays at 6 p.m. or 7 p.m. or Saturdays at 11 a.m.
Although Pole Passion Fitness occasionally offers other discounts on its fitness packages, this Groupon represents the best deal available.
