Tease to Get Toned

What if we said you could sip wine and get a full-body workout from the comfort of your chair? Ladies, this is not a drill. PerForm Studio, in Doral, is hosting a sultry “Be Sexy” burlesque and chair dance workshop this Saturday, Feb. 28, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Whether you just finished watching Fifty Shades of Grey or you’re looking to re-enact a scene from Flashdance, you’ll learn a routine filled with tricks of the chair dance trade. Check your hesitations at the door—no experience is required. Dancers will loosen up with a complimentary glass of wine before learning the art of the tease.

“We wanted to create a workshop for everyday women who want to get in touch with their sexy side with a more detailed and intimate experience,” PerForm Studio class instructor Simone Sobers says. “The class will leave you feeling more confident, sexy and skilled.”

The best part? Slipping into your favorite stilettos is recommended but not required. “Everything you do is a little more challenging a few inches off the ground,” said Sobers. “Different muscles are automatically activated from standing in heels. Once you start moving in them, you’re definitely burning some extra calories.” Talk about a return-on-invest from those brand new Jimmy Choos.

Tickets are available online here for $35 and $45 at the door. All dancers will be entered to win free Zumba and Boss Chick Dance Workout studio classes to continue their fitness goals. Our verdict? A little leg work and libations can go a long way.
