Dance-fitness classes help improve the body's strength and flexibility for everyday chores such as washing hard-to-reach windows and using toes to screw in light bulbs to overhead chandeliers. Develop deft digits with today's Groupon: for $40, you get five drop-in barre-fitness classes at Secret Physique Barre Studio, located in Pembroke (an $80 value).
Master muscle sculptor Jenny Anania and her experienced instructors strive to fortify muscular infrastructure and shear superfluous curves with Secret Physique's medley of ballet, Pilates, yoga, and weight training. The Secret Physique Barre class's 60-minute sinew sonata features a free-weight prelude that heralds barre and abdominal fitness flourishes, culminating in a crescendo of mat core work, seat exercises, and stretching. Students can also beef up builds and auditions for The Nutcracker Takes Thanksgiving with the Bardio class's aerobic cardio and ballet barre positions, or strut through the sultry steps of Hollywood Dance's burlesque choreography.
Secret Physique's obsidian studio is anchored by rich hardwood floors and a full-length mirror for showcasing dedicated pupils' slender reflections. Those with children can drop them off in the supervised baby-sitting room for a paltry fee ($3/first child, $2/each additional child) before shaping their silhouettes into duplicates of Peter Pan's unruly shadow. Potential students can stretch their eyes over the flexible schedule for a full listing of classes.
