    Fun and Fitness Pole Dance Exercise Class

    The polls are in and Sassy Healthy Fit is the winner.

    While it might be a stretch for some to consider pole dancing as exercise (see what I did there?) twirling on a vertical pole is every bit as challenging and rewarding as stretching on a horizontal bar at a traditional Ballet studio.

Sassy Healthy Fit has teamed up with Seventh Dimension Dance to empower women in movement and flow exercises using pole dancing techniques as the foundation.
