Before people learned to tip-toe around, everybody always knew exactly who was sneaking the pizza from the fridge at night. Appreciate even more skills of the pointed foot with today's Groupon: for $45, you get five cardio-ballet classes at ProPilates (a $90 value).
ProPilates' daily cardio-ballet classes combine ballet principles and high-energy cardio against a backdrop of booming bass. Practiced instructors guide fit-focused ballerinas through fast-paced movements that lengthen and tone muscles. Single-pound weights increase the body's natural gravitational resistance, sculpting muscles while protecting joints from excessive impact. Limbs will lark through joyful extensions and repetitions while the torso and hindquarters trim to tighter contours. As the tempo ascends to allegro, movements and heartbeats will hasten in turn, giving bodies a crash course in rhythm comparable to a full semester at Drumstick University.
The studio boasts a forest-inspired palate of mahogany and grass green, reinforced by knotted wood floors and a sprinkler system periodically ignited by thunder-footed dancers and flashes of jazz hands. After scoping out the online schedule, dancers must dial in a reservation prior to practicing pirouettes.
