Sometimes, late at night, firemen slip into heels and dance with their poles, spinning, dipping, and stripping away cumbersome fireproof coats and burdensome notions of masculinity. With today's Groupon, you get a fireman's acrobatic workout with twice as much confidence: for $20, you get two pole-dancing or chair-dancing classes at Red Room Studio, located in Kemah (up to a $40 value).
Red Room Studio endeavors to create a welcoming and discrete fitness center where Bay Area clients can learn to channel their inner powers of seduction while engaging in a fun, physical workout. Their introductory pole-dance classes ($20 per class) are built upon the idea that building strength and confidence is the key to unlocking one's natural aura of sensuality, as personified in the sinuous, self-assured sauntering of the mighty meerkat. Chair-dancing classes, or striptease aerobics ($15 per class), ground the seductive swaying straight down to the terra firma, equipping vertigo sufferers with their own set of slinky, strengthening moves. All classes are open to students of either gender and provide a lively and challenging workout to adults of all shapes and sizes.
While Red Room's team of warm and encouraging instructors are there to provide assistance and enhance technique, dancers are given the freedom to move at their own pace. To ensure the utmost privacy and comfort, classes are reserved for participants only, and guests are not allowed. Home fitness poles can be purchased from the studio for dancers tired of practicing their sultry routines at the local bank or fast-food drive-thru.
Classes are by appointment only.
