Dancing is one of the oldest forms of courting a partner, alongside writing their name in burning crops and rescuing them from Hades by hiding inside a pomegranate. Meet your match with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a six-class card at The Exotic You (up to a $50 value). Classes take place Sunday at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday at 7:45 p.m., Friday at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday at 9:45 a.m. in the Center Space Studio.
The Exotic You's Lisa Stark shares wit and warmth with troupes of women as she cultivates their physical strength and confidence through sensual dance routines. Ladies of all fitness levels gather for one-hour classes that teach a complete routine, checking negative body talk at the door and flushing their inner vixen out of corporeal warrens via slow leg extensions and passionate hip rolls. To forge a workout balancing sexy sizzle and athletic toning, Stark researched popular dance-fitness styles, documented choreography at local clubs, and enlisted a former exotic dancer to teach her x-rated moves. Students should dress for class in high heels and comfortable yet curve-hugging duds, and bring kneepads so they may slither or reenact scenes from Kickboxer comfortably on the studio's wood floor without scraping their skin. If necessary, The Exotic You can provide loaners for kneepads and shoes at no additional charge.
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.
