Like defusing a bomb, a well-executed exotic-dance routine requires concentration, skill, and a nervous partner who questions your every move before unexpectedly jumping out of a window. Blow onlookers away with explosive dance moves thanks to today’s Groupon: for $12, you get two classes from The Exotic You (a $24 value) located at the Middlearth Production Studio in downtown Salem.
The Exotic You transforms weary wallflowers into self-confident vixens sporting shapely bodies with one-hour ladies-only exotic-dance workouts. Women ages 18 and older of all ability levels build strength and flexibility with simple, stripper-inspired dance moves in a comfortable, nonjudgmental environment devoid of snooty leotard-wearing lemurs. To encourage positive body image, negative body talk is strictly prohibited and replaced with engaging instruction. The Exotic You's temptation-trained instructor will teach you sexy mini dances to perform for significant others at home or Daughters of the American Revolution at next month's knitting circle.
Come to class wearing exotic dancer appropriate-gear, such as yoga pants and a curve-hugging top or a modest pantsuit made of glitter. The Exotic You recommends wearing heels to class to accentuate the saucy sense of self-worth, but it also offers a limited number of loaner pairs for forgetful participants.

The Exotic You
When Lisa Stark's quest for a sensual, laid-back exercise class turned up nothing, she took matters into her own hands. To forge her ideal workout, which is a balance of sexy sizzle and athletic toning, Stark researched popular dance-fitness styles, documented choreography at local clubs, and even enlisted a former exotic dancer to teach her how to kick, saunter, and fill out tax forms in a sensual manner. The months of studying paid off—today, Lisa shares her wit, warmth, and fitness regimen with troupes of women at The Exotic You. Ladies of all fitness levels gather for classes that teach a complete routine of sensual dance moves, checking negative body-talk at the door and summoning their inner vixen out with slow leg extensions and passionate hip rolls.
