The spritely squad of fitness specialists at Vertical Tease welcomes women of all ages and fitness levels into a red-washed studio space. Sampler students can view the schedule and gather a bouquet from five varieties of 60-minute beginner pole classes that tone tummies and teach how to tantalize onlookers with athletic moves instead of putting stacks of money beneath delicately balanced box traps. Flex strong and sultry dualities during Pole Fit, or seduce a weatherperson with wind-whipped moves and cyclonic spins following a Femme Fatale class. To ensure each student receives individual attention, classes contain no more than six participants.
Fitness folk looking to delve into one discipline can sharpen their shimmies in Pole Diva 101, a beginners’ course that bestows students with entry-level walks, spins, floor routines and strength-building exercises. Practiced dancers can continue their education in Pole Diva 201 and partake in more complex lessons on putting together flirty combos and building in-home dance stages. For private pole tutelage, the Girls’ Night Out party enables hosts to gather up to nine friends for an invite-only session held inside Vertical Tease’s studio.
Origin Stories: A Lesson Not Taught in the Classroom Formerly a middle-school language-arts teacher in Columbus, Ohio, DeAnna Allen ditched the smell of chalkboards to answer an entrepreneurial calling that had tugged at her ears since she was a little girl. In 2010, she opened Vertical Tease after entertaining gaggles of giddy bachelorettes with in-home “passion parties.” DeAnna has since traded hospitality house calls for pole fitness classes that have caught the attention of women from all walks of life, as well as a few men who are equally eager to try their twirls.
The empowering instructors at Vertical Tease motivate women of all sizes and experience levels to shed their inhibitions—and possibly a few pounds—during conventional and modern dance fitness classes. Their flirty fitness classes draw upon the studio’s strength, encouraging women to release their inner sirens during pole-dance, Video Vixen, Chair Flirt, and belly-dance workouts. Combining fat burning with shimmying, instructors lead Zumba sessions set to heart-pumping Latin rhythms. Kickboxing classes combat extra inches, and the more challenging Turbokick unleashes a fury of kicks and punches to take down pesky calories. To celebrate special events such as bachelorette parties, birthday parties, or sci-fi conventions, the instructors head to your home to host one- to two-hour parties for training large groups in the seduction arts.
