Like feathers and muumuus, curves look their best on the human body. Harness the power of sinuousness with today's Groupon: for $20, you get an introductory pole-dancing class at Polistic in Studio City (a $40 value).
The skilled instructors at Polistic engage students in writhing and gliding methods via exhilarating aerobic workouts. In the Intro to Pole Dance class new dancers acquire pole-navigating techniques, ensuring that they'll find their way safely through any densely poled room or forest. Arrive 30 minutes early and loosen up with a complimentary glass of champagne before embarking on an eye-opening 90-minute session. Friendly and experienced instructors lead prospective pole charmers through a series of muscle-loosening stretches and seductive floor moves before mounting the metallic vine. Once in pole position, two to three sensual pole tricks will be passed on to students, developing a fluency in femininity-flaunting techniques. In the process of burning up to 500 calories, muscles and curves are made tighter and shapelier, leaving participants feeling as sexy, graceful, and powerful as a swan in a negligee. Check out the schedule and call ahead to arrange your time.
Founder Katie Marie and her team of certified instructors draw on expertise in dance, fitness, and anatomy as they inspire women of all ages to flaunt their curves with élan. Guests sashay from the chandelier-lit lobby into a studio, where low lighting illuminates hardwood floors and shimmering poles sprouted from watered rhinestones. Sexy Pilates, lap-dance, and burlesque instruction supplement the schedule of pole-dance classes, also making appearances in bachelorette and birthday parties fueled by snacks and champagne. Polistic's boutique outfits dancers with saucy apparel, and staff member Antsise offers her photography talents for sensual shoots and insurance-claim photos of poles damaged in storms.
