Costa Rica's First Pole-Dancing Retreat

Costa Rica is a hotbed for yoga and surfing retreats, but a Montezuma is adding a unique twist, ok twirl, pole dancing. The Anamaya Resort announces what it calls "Flirty Girl Fitness Retreat, which includes daily pole dancing lessons as well as additional dancing classes that include chair dance, burlesque, and something called video vixen.

In addition to all of these sexy, sweaty workouts the retreat includes morning yoga sessions and a “Booty Beat Certification.”

Booty Beat is a popular cardio dance class, and after this 7-day retreat the students will receive a Flirty Girl Fitness Booty Beat instructor certification and be able to teach this fun new workout back at home. This Pole Dancing and Yoga Retreat takes place in November of 2011 and will probably be the first of many considering the popularity of pole-dancing as a form of exercise.

Surf Retreats are also very popular in Costa Rica and in places like Montezuma and nearby Malpais, surfing is truly a way of life and Anamaya has that also.

Health and wellness vacations are increasing in popularity, especially in Costa Rica.

Pole Dancing
Pole dance is a form of performing art, a combination of dance and gymnastics. It involves dancing and performing acrobatic tricks with a vertical pole and is an increasingly popular form of fitness and dance, practised by many enthusiasts in gyms or dedicated dance studios. A wide range of amateur and professional competitions are held in many countries around the world.

Before the mid 2000s, pole dance mainly took place in strip clubs.

Since then, promoters of pole dance fitness competitions have been trying to change peoples’ perception of pole dance and to promote it as a legitimate form of dance and fitness. Since then, pole dance has increasingly been influenced by Chinese pole, a form of acrobatics that is performed in cabaret/circus and stage performances in a non-erotic environment. Pole dance in competitions and dance/fitness classes often contains sensual dance movement but is increasingly combined with a range of non-erotic dance styles or gymnastics.
