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. Get a fireman's acrobatic workout with today’s Groupon to Taboo Dance & Fitness. Taboo Dance & Fitness puts a new spin, dip, and leg hook on women’s fitness with fun, sexy, and empowering classes. Like a troupe of dancing seamstresses, Taboo's instructors tailor their classes to fit the age, shape, size, or fitness level of any woman. Today’s Groupon is good for a six week, once a week session of Pole Dancing 101, wherein sultry students will learn how to dance and spin while building strength and molding muscles through the mastery of pole dancing moves. Post-pole, participants feel energized with the increased self-confidence, body awareness, and echolocation that comes with hanging upside down. See the class descriptions and schedule for times and further info on this fun alternative to pole bowling.
Taboo Dance & Fitness does not yet have many reviews, but students provide testimonials online:
- A creative new approach to improving physical fitness, core strength and flexibility, Strippersize is a terrific workout and an exciting technique for exploring new ways of self-expression. – Karen

Moving in a straight line across Taboo Fitness’s studio space that’s studded with floor-to-ceiling poles might seem difficult, but that’s just because the instructors haven’t started teaching any moves yet. Minutes into class, instructors with nicknames such as JRock, B, and Ash encourage students to perform twirls, lifts, and slides, strengthening limbs to the rhythm of upbeat music. They supplement the pole-dance workout with burlesque-inspired cardio classes such as Pussycat Dolls—titled after the pop stars—or Quick and Dirty, which is named after Clint Eastwood’s burlesque routine.
