Clinging to a pole is a vital survival skill for flags in windy climates and firemen who don't realize that the fire they're racing toward is in their own lobby. Get a grip with this Groupon.

Pole-dancing classes, which last 90 minutes, span three levels of difficulty. The initial Diva level prepares novices for more complex routines with slow, controlled motions that combine yoga, Pilates, and tai chi. Midlevel Woman and advanced Warrior classes increase the difficulty and continue developing students' individual style. Belly dancing classes teach slow and sensual movements as well as fast, powerful ones as students learn to isolate their lower- and upper-body movement. More advanced classes teach the use of veils and scarves and give students a chance to choreograph routines of their own. Studio Venus offers two types of yoga classes: gentle, which is held on Mondays and focuses on body rhythm and breathing; and advanced, which meets on Wednesdays and teaches students to hold poses for longer to build strength, flexibility, and endurance.
The antigravity silk-trapeze classes send students into the air in silk hammocks to practice skills drawn from aerial circus and dance. The 60-minute classes enhance physical fitness, motor skills, and flexibility, and the exercises supplement and strengthen the muscles used in pole dancing. Check out the class schedule.
On April 28, Studio Venus will host the Venus Pole Festival's Indiana Regional Elite Semifinals.

Q&A with Karen Price, Owner
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Here at Studio Venus, you will find most of our classes are limited to 8 students, and offered in a 6 week session. This assures proper instruction and a long enough commitment to see improvement and feel satisfied. . We found small classes promote a family atmosphere, where each woman is personally challenged and accountable to attend regularly. We offer all the fun classes you cannot find anywhere else, keeping you motivated by challenging your body and mind. Our instructors are encouraged to attend workshops and conventions staying current with new and exciting ways to get fit.
What's the most radical physical transformation you've seen a client make?
I've personally seen a woman shear down 5 dress sizes. You see, we don't have a scale. The only time we measure is during our SV 30 Day Challenge, where the average loss is 9 inches, by the way... I've seen a student decide she was going to get her abs back after years of indifference, and she did it. We can't make you eat healthy if you don't want to, but when you want to improve the trick you've been working on, I know from my own experience, it's easier a couple pounds lighter sometimes that's the extra motivation we need. You see, we are going to make it fun so you want to be here. Studio Venus should be the highlight of your week.
Besides working out, what else can clients do to spend their time at your facility?
We are the workout for every part of every woman. What does that mean? In our intimate classes you're going to bond, help each other, support and encourage each other. Your classmates are just as important as your instructor. It brings us joy to help others achieve their goals. Sure you are going to get more flexible, muscular, fit, feel better, jeans will fit better, your going to be more confident. Not everyone is going to be a size 6, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't love your workout, and your body. Come on, who doesn't like to dance?
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We at Studio Venus love what we do. We want you to enjoy learning the skills we are passionate about. We invite you to come try our classes, meet our instructors and students, grab a mat, take a deep breath, and see what happens. Take responsibility for your fitness. See you soon.
