A new business popped up in March that has flown under my radar. It's called Eye Candy Dance & Fitness and is located at 9 Central Street, Suite 301 in Downtown Bangor.
What makes this business unique are the classes it brings to the people of Bangor- ones that can include props such as stilettos and silky robes. Most classes cost $12 to attend and are offered once a week. Here are classes that this studio is offering currently:
One-hour class offered during typical 'business hours'; In the description on their website, they state that their belly dancing classes 'will work on isolating the muscles for moves such as twisting the abdomen and hip movements. It is a low-impact exercise that can help tone muscles, improve posture, and have a lot of fun'.
Introduction to Burlesque
One-hour class offered in late evenings; If you need your sexy dancing to include furniture, this might be the one for you. The description for this class is as follows: "Come learn the art of seduction in this beginner burlesque class! This class will use chairs - bring your heels if you'd like!!"
One-hour class offered in late evenings; 'The art of the tease' is how this class is summarized: "Learn the art of the striptease and take home a dance to share! Bring a silk robe - we will need it!"
One other class taught doesn't seem to have sexiness involved but does sound like a great way to have a good workout. The studio offers a Tabata class weekly called 'Tabata with Marybeth', which they describe as an interval workout that switches you between 20 seconds of intense movement and 10 seconds of rest. This is offered in the evenings.
