Classes to Show Off Your Curves

Where: Vixen Fitness, Orlando, Florida
Class: Sexy Lap Dance

We've all seen the standard lap dance gone wrong in our favorite rom-coms, where the bubbly actress starts by strutting her stuff, only to twist her ankle in her stilettos, throwing her bra on a lit candle and catching the bedroom on fire. Avoid a disaster scenario like this of your own with the help of this class, which teaches you the basics to lap dancing while wearing lingerie and heels. "This is the type of workout you do without even realizing you're working out," says Kristen Evans, Vixen fitness instructor. Plus, it's probably the only place aside from the privacy of your bedroom it's acceptable to don fishnet stocking during daylight hours.

 

Where: Gold's Gym, locations nationwide
Class: Zumba

This hybrid class of salsa, merengue, and cumbia popped into the mainstream fitness scene and few years ago, but since then has quickly become one of the most effective and fun ways to lose weight for all ages and genders. "Expect to get a full-body workout from top to bottom -- every muscle is being worked," says Lynn Mele, Gold's Gym group fitness manager. Switch up the usual dinner and drinks date night and rope your guy to this class instead.

 

Where: Sedusa Studios, Campbell/Los Gatos, South San Francisco, Walnut Creek, California
Class: Sensual Dance

A 6-week class designed to teach you the art of exotic dance, without the embarrassment of learning on your own at home (only to get walked in on by your hubby, kids, the dog, etc.!). "This class helps students to be more flexible, confident, and gain balance by actually doing the class in 6-inch stiletto heels!" says Carol Whitsett, RD, Sedusa Studios owner. Other techniques practicing in front of your mirror solo won't help with? "Using eye contact and the sense of touch," says Whitsett. Get in your cardio and a core burn while improving your posture, not to mention surprising a special someone later!

you should always do all pole moves equaly on each side during a workout sure one side will look awesome and the other side will look like a flailing turtle but you do it anyway to prevent dispreportionate muscle development and to add variety to your performances(if you ever want to) since eventualy you can do moves in both directions looking pretty.

I wanted to add to the fact of pole dancing. When you reach to the level that you can benefit from it you will get un even body muscles as will be using one side more than other, and to correct this you will have to do weight training so just do weight training and keep the pole dance for littl spice in your life
