Default Instructor: Pole dance classes can boost fitness, confidence

http://www.petoskeynews.com/news/pnr...,3215250.story


Studio Health and Fitness is now offering pole dance fitness instruction at its downtown Petoskey location.

Sherry White, a certified pole dance instructor, is teaching the women’s classes at Studio Health and Fitness.


The class leads participants through the basics of pole dance which lead to improved posture, poise and balance, White said. She added that the program can also build strength, improve flexibility and provide a good cardiovascular workout while participants learn a dynamic form of dance.

Studio Health and Fitness is owned by Christi Roman.

“There has been a lot of interest since we started the class three weeks ago, but not many women have tried it yet,” said Roman, explaining that nobody should be intimidated by the beginner-level class. “I just started a few weeks ago without any experience and I love it.”

Roman, a Charlevoix native, said she strives to find classes that are different and fun for the studio. She believes the pole dance and also new chair dance classes, for women only, are a great way for her clients to feel sexy and confident while building upper body and core strength.

“Pole dancing really is an exercise anybody can do and it helps women build confidence in the process of building better bodies,” said White, who is also the owner of Studio S Fitness in Traverse City.

White said her goal for the classes is to “offer a safe, supportive, non-judgmental environment. We welcome and celebrate every woman in every shape and size of the female form.”

“There can be a ‘stripper stigma’ surrounding these classes. That is not what we do. We wear yoga pants and break a sweat,” said White. “It’s dancy, it’s showy, it’s a lot of fun and you’re getting a killer workout.”

The pole and chair dance fitness classes offered by Studio Health and Fitness are the first of their kind in the Little Traverse area. The studio, which specializes in zumba, also offers adult ballet, power yoga, tap and hip-hop classes, all of which are fitness-oriented.

Studio Health and Fitness is located on the third floor at 418 E. Mitchell St., upstairs from Center City Gym.

Pole and chair dance fitness classes last an hour each. Pole dance classes begin at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesdays, followed by chair dance classes at 6:45 p.m. Each class has a $15 fee, and advance registration is required.
