For $100, today's side deal gets you a customized hour-long girls' night out party for up to eight at Tease Studio (a $200 value). At Tease's dance and fitness space, you’ll work up a sweat and learn steps you can use to impress coworkers or highly aware babies, like pole dancing or the dance routine from the series finale of Friends.
At the studio, located in Wash Park, you and your gal pals will get schooled in the equipment favored by circus performers and firemen during the 60-minute session. Parties at Tease focus on the needs of your group, from chair flirting (lengthen and strengthen muscles while learning chair choreography) to pin-up pop burlesque (high-energy dance warm-up followed by general sexiness; bring heels). Choose a focus area, from rappy (hip hop) to racy (stripper workout, lap dance), or try a combination.
If you’ve been bored shuffling through the same routine or jogging in place, pole dancing will turn you and your world upside down and slightly to the left. In addition to adding hourglass curves, working new muscle groups, and boosting your heart rate, pole dancing is also credited with making women feel better about their bodies, and making men feel OK, too. The female-friendly space features violet-hued walls, shock-absorbing floors, cheeky animal print rugs, and a plush waiting area stocked with magazines and cozy seating. Get this Groupon for an exciting alternative night out or a sweaty girl-only birthday party.
- I had never been to a pole dance class before and was pretty nervous about it. But I had SO much fun. The instrtuctor [sic], Jen was awesome - she explained everything so great and thorough. We were all laughing the entire time. I've tried a few of the other classes since and love them all, it's really hard to decide. The pole classes are great, such a good workout. Samm's cardio gogo class has such fun choreography. And Cisco's hip hop class is GREAT! – mariahsingsalot, Metromix
- The classes they offer are awesome, such a great variety and wonderful team of instructors. I definitely just cancelled my gym membership so that I can take more Tease classes! – tapdancegirl, Metromix
