Four Things to Know About Inner Diva Studios
Gyms can be intimidating. That’s why Inner Diva Studios strives to make clients feel comfortable as soon as they walk through the door. The studio’s ceiling is strung with lights and brightly colored fabric swags, and ribboned hula hoops decorate the walls, clearly signifying that sessions here are designed to be more fun than your typical fitness class. Read on to learn more about what makes Inner Diva Studios unique:
They’ll help you throw a bachelorette party to remember. The studio’s party packages are a great way to let loose before a wedding. Party-goers throw on pink feathered boas and the guest of honor gets a sash and tiara before they learn essential pole or dance fitness techniques. Instructors will even come to you—in-home parties are available, pole included.
You’ll burn 500 calories in no time. You’ll be having so much fun learning pole-dance moves or doing Latin-centric Zumba that you might not even notice you’re getting in shape at the same time. You can expect to burn more than 500 calories during most classes.
You can rediscover your younger self’s love of hula hooping. If you thought hula hoops were just for kids at recess, then you’re wrong. Hoop Dance classes start by covering the basics, then teach “hand hooping” and even how to dance inside the hoop. You’ll be toning your core and trimming inches from your waist the whole time.
You don’t have to lose any clothes. Inner Diva says you’ll “strip away your inhibitions, your negativity, and your extra pounds,” but you won’t be stripping any garments. In fact, you can wear exactly what you’d wear to any fitness class—yoga pants, sweats, tees, and tennis shoes are recommended.
Chi Chi Randolph has choreographed routines for hip-hop artists including Nelly and the Black Eyed Peas. Kari Lehman has 15 years of ballet training experience. Viviane Bressan turned her love of belly dance into a career, traversing the globe while teaching and performing the ancient art. At Dance Austin Studio, these three number among more than a dozen dance instructors whose dazzlingly diverse backgrounds enable an array of classes for everyone from preschoolers to grownups and fitness buffs to serious students of dance.
Zumba combines fast-paced cardio choreography with dynamic Latin rhythms, and the 18-and-older Sexy Stiletto Fit class uses high heels to tone calves and build confidence. Students can choose to learn fundamental positions, steps, and vocabulary during structured ballet, lyrical, and jazz programs, or they can develop video-ready swagger during hip-hop classes. The studio’s sense of fun occasionally spills out into the community—it recently teamed up with the city’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management to spark a flash mob at city hall, held to raise awareness of emergency preparedness and help officials practice what to do if invaded by dancing aliens.

Named for Charles Lindbergh's feat of leaping across the Atlantic with a plane strapped to his back in 1927, the lindy hop shook the foundations of many an American dance hall in the 1920s and '30s. During those roaring decades, the dance blended unrestrained new forms of movement, including jazz, tap, breakaway, and the Charleston. The dance became synonymous with swing, requiring of its dancers athleticism, enthusiasm, and a bit of training. Today, in an era of popping and locking, or programming robotic shoes to dance for you, the instructors at The Lindy Project keep the art form fresh, imparting Austin's two-steppers with the skills and fitness to perform this slice of Americana.
They lead group classes twice a week for couples and solo artists, or expedite the process with private lessons taught by an instructor schooled in a wide range of styles, such as balboa and shag. The art's many influences leave room for individualization and improvisation in dance styles, with some instructors incorporating more lifts and twirls while others perform tap moves while wearing scuba flippers.
