I threw a Bachelorette Party for my cousin here & everyone (15 girls) had a wonderful time. We left with plenty of innovative moves, funny moments & pictures (no videos), and plenty of laughs. It was such a good time. Learning how to pole dance was intriguing. Our instructor (Teazz) was great. We learned techniques of lap dancing and stripping & it was well worth the money. We got the package with the refreshments & cake (try the strawberry shortcake) which was good since we needed a drink break every so often. It is hot in that room though, that's my only complaint. Also, don't get there earlier than the 30 minutes otherwise your large group will have no were to wait since their waiting area only fits about 5 ppl comfortably. It's a regular dance studio when you get there, but they have a backroom for private parties. You have to try it & you'll become hooked!
We attended as a bachelorette party. We enjoyed every second of it. The instructor, Fellany was great. For it to be a beginner class, it was a little more intense than I thought it would be. I would definitely recommend this activity.
If it's something you've always wanted to try, this is a great place to do it. What a great experience! We had a bachelorette party package and our instructor was Madame Teazz. It was a lot of fun and we definitely picked up some great moves! The instructors did a great job breaking things down and boosting our confidence to try the moves they demonstrated. They were professional and fun at the same time. Make sure the girls you go with have high comfort levels with one another because you definitely get close! A once in a lifetime experience filled with memories and laughs that will last a long time! (we were sore the next day and some of the girls had bruising just FYI). I am truly empowered by taking these classes. I float on air instead of walking!
We had a blast! I signed up 5 girls as part of our bachelorette NYC bash, and we all had a blast. Our instructor was very patient, knowledgeable and professional. She also allowed the bride-to-be to show off her newly learned pole dancing tricks by doing a quick performance for us, it was so fun! I would really recommend this to all types of women - shy/conservative/modest/wild etc.
It really helps bring out your inner sexx kitten and it's DEFINITELY a workout girls! Our arms were SORE for 2 days. I have a lot more respect for pole dancers now LOL Don't listen to the negative reviewers - it was fun!
Ladies, I just finished 2 months of classes at EDC, and I am definately sexier than I have ever been. I find myself getting more attention just walking down that street...without platforms, than ever before. I knew that I would like the "exotic" workout because it seemed more fun than regular workouts. However, this does so much more for you. You learn to move and love your body like never before. I took the lapdance and goddess classes and saw not only myself, but my classmates transform. Those heels are MAGICAL. My teacher was awesome, and she had great music. The thing that I like the most was the lack of pretention here. Many are going to get rich off of "striptease workouts", that have celebrity appeal, but EDC will not be like that. I promise, any of you can go there and feel comfortable and like the sexiest you ever. I will never feel ashamed of my sexuality or my shape again, and if I do, I will just do the moves I learned here in my mirror and be reminded how hot I truly am.
Pole dancing classes are excellent! – I've decided to try pole dancing for both fun and as an alternative form of exercise. Someone recommended EDC to me and it's the most rewarding experience ever, especially for someone like me who is a beginner without ANY dancing skills! The pole dancing classes are excellent! The instructor is very skilled at teaching the fundamental techniques AND she is very patient (a very valuable asset that a good instructor should possess). I look forward to my pole dancing classes every week, my skills and confidence have improved greatly, the workout is awesome and I'm ready to upgrade to a higher level. Did I mention the Staff is very welcoming and wonderful? I will recommend this school 100% to anyone who's considering exotic dance lessons.
I was surprised to see some of the comments made about EDC on here. I told my friend how much fun I was having taking the classes and when she was doing some research about the school she came across this website. She called me and told me to look at the comments because they were contradicting what I was telling her. I have been going to EDC for a few months now and I feel it was the best decision I made. The manager is extremely friendly and the instructors are very
knowledgeable on whatever class they are teaching. There are three dance studios, two bathrooms, and a changing room; all of which are clean at all times. I have never had any problems while attending, the schedules are flexible and the school with work with anyone if given enough time. I am now an intermediate student and plan on continuing until I am advanced. This is a great workout and I would recommend EDC to any and everyone.
Best Saturday Nite Ever – I had my "Not Yet 40 Birthday Party" there on May 19, 2012 and I had a blast. I had 10 of my friends there with me. One of my friends is 6 months preggers and although she couldn't get on the pole, she was able to participate in the other activities. This is what made EDC so great! My friend was able to do the floor work routine, striptease, lap dancing, etc... I enjoyed myself so much, I am going to start taking classes this summer!
They bring the SEXY out of you! – I been going to EDC for about a month now and im soooo happy I went! I LOVE that place because they know what there doing. Instructors are patient and willing to show you until you get it right. So far I had Alex and Alieesha and their GREAT. I go back tonight for sensual floorwork and cant wait; especially to see the new location. I recommend anyone to giving them a try, they will bring out another side of you where you will be happy you explored it.
Completely unprofessional – I called yesterday to book a party. The person I spoke to was very friendly and tried to help accomodate me for the times I requested. She told me that she would have to call the instructor and would get back to me at 3:30 today.
I didn't hear back by the alloted time so I called the stuido today at 8pm. After being on hold for 10 minutes, I was told that those times didn't exist and they couldn't help me. So I asked if the person I spoke to yesterday wrote down a note or if she might have already entered me into the "system" this woman kept referencing to. Her response was "Do you know who you spoke to, because I don't. We don't have those times available."
Obviously I'm calling a small business and I didn't find it necessary to ask for the name of the person I was speaking to . Is this place so incredibly disorganized that they wouldn't be able to figure out who was working the day before at the time I called? From the conversation I had today, I would venture to say yes. If the times weren't avaialble, I would have completely understood, but instead, they gave me this run around that was not helpful and left me with having to find a new venue.
If you want to book a party, be sure to get a name of who you are speaking to and the book it that DAY, otherwise save yourself some grief and go elsewhere.
