Tease Instructors Complete Pole Art Athletics Training

On March 23, 2018, the instructors of Tease Dance and Fitness underwent an intensive two-day training session with Pole Art Athletics.

Pole Art Athletics, which was founded by Dr. Misty Rose Austin, works with pole, aerial, and dance studios to ensure instructors are not only comfortable with their pole teaching, but also well versed in body mechanics and injury prevention.

Several of our instructors had this to say about the training:

“Saying Dr. Misty does an incredible job at instructing this course, is an understatement. Her breakdown of movements /exercises and how she seamlessly implements them into most aerial apparatuses is superb.”

“Dr. Misty has such a wealth of knowledge about the pole and aerial world that I can’t wait to have her come back. She isn’t afraid to answer the tough questions, and backs everything up with science, peer review, and research.”

As a student at Tease, you can rest assured that you’re in good hands not matter what style you’re learning — aerial, pole, yoga, or dance.

Tease Aerial Dance & Fitness reopens larger studio in new location to meet growing demand

Since 2006, Tease Dance & Fitness – now known as Tease Aerial Dance & Fitness – has been Chicagoland’s premier pole dance fitness studio. To meet increasing demand and provide more class offerings, Tease has been rebuilt in a new, larger space near Fox Valley Mall. Located at 4014 Fox Valley Center Drive in Aurora, the new studio celebrated its grand reopening on Friday, Nov. 10 with a ribbon cutting ceremony attended by local business leaders and Aurora aldermen. The new studio will focus on acrobatic aerial workouts such as silks and lyra (hoop) as well as pole dance, burlesque and more.

Featuring state-of-the-art equipment and nearly 5,000 square feet of dance and retail space, the new Tease caters to women looking to experience an effective and creative workout. The completely redesigned studio features four unique dance spaces, 18 competition grade poles and plush a lounge area for students to enjoy.

Tease is owned by Kristin McNabb, who started her business teaching pole dance to clients in the basement of her home. This move is the third expansion for Tease, which was previously located in Naperville and then near the Route 59 Metra station in Aurora before moving to its current space.

Tease offers classes seven days a week, ranging from beginning to advanced levels. Instructors include elite competition pole dancers and performers.

Tease also offers parties, special events, workshops, private training sessions and now kids’ classes. For more information, visit teasedanceandfitness.com.

January session is up on the website and ready for sign ups

We’re excited to announce the January schedule is now available on the Tease website.

We’re even more excited to announce new classes available this session. Along with our signature pole series, Burlesque, Pole Poise, Cardio Pole and Booty Camp, we’re adding 2 new classes to the Tease Fitness family!

This 90 minute class will be all about increasing your flexibility from head to toe!  We will begin with some moving meditation, dance and yoga flow to warm the body.  Space heaters will be used to keep the room nice and warm.  We will then move into deeper stretching into minor contortions alternating with some strengthening and lengthening of the muscles.  The music in this class will be soft and encouraging, inflicting a sense of well being as we let the natural weight of our bodies open up those joints and ligaments.  We will also work on some ballet moves to help us learn to let our fingers and toes reach and guide the body into it’s natural movement creating gorgeous, smooth dance moves.  Finally, we will work on any tricks that involve minor contortion moves such as the drop splits, back bends, and flexibility on the pole.  This will be a very holistic class that will be personal to each woman and guided by the realization that every body is different and every day is different for every body.  Fluidity and the all important BREATH will be the focus!  This class is open to all levels

Practice Pole
Having a pole in your home to practice with is a big investment.  This is an opportunity to come in each week, have a short warm up and spend the rest of class working on your tricks and your dance.  No new tricks will be taught, but you will get assistance on perfecting the things you have already learned.  This class is offered only as an add on class, you must be enrolled in a pole class to take this.

Instructor Spotlight: Sarah Ritzman

Hello to all my fellow Teasers and FUTURE Teasers alike!
I know a lot of you know first hand how much work it can be, but it can also be extremely rewarding! If that’s not enough by itself…my husband Mike and I, also run an electrical contracting business. So, I greatly look forward to having that special “me” time that we all tend to put off ’till later.

I found Tease because of my fabulous hubby. He came home one day from work, I was having “one of those days.” He said, “well you never take time for yourself, what do you expect?!” I COULD’NT BELIEVE HOW RIGHT HE WAS! (you know how we hate for THEM to be right!) haha  So, I started searching for something for me to do….and came upon Tease!

I thought, “this is right up my alley! I used to dance and be in gymnastics….and I’d LOVE to feel sexy again!” WHY NOT?! So, I started as a student and not long after, Kristin insisted I become an instructor..so, just to shut her up, I said, OK! haha Just kidding, I was thrilled!

I’ve been an instructor now for 2 1/2yrs. I’m excited to share my passion for this beautiful form of dance and fitness. It allows me to stay fit and flexible and at the same time get that extra special “me” time that we all DESERVE!! I LOVE all my sassy ladies!!

I strive to be the best instructor I can be and to help them achieve what they never thought they’d feel about themselves and accomplish tricks they never thought they’d be able to do! I look forward to seeing you in class!! WOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!
