What: 
Vixen Fitness Class

Class description from StudioPulseAK.com:
Developed by studio owner Stephanie Wonchala, this signature Studio Pulse class (formerly named Burlesque Body) is popular with adults! You will sweat, grind, twerk, jiggle, and stretch into the most confident version of your body. This class is ideal for anyone looking for an extended, intense warm up and sexy floorwork. Emphasis is placed on HIIT exercises and easy-to-follow dance combos done to booty-poppin' music. Focus then shifts to sensual movement and developing the strength and agility required to execute intricate moves with fluidity and grace. Floorwork can be tough on knees, and knee protection and/or legwarmers are highly recommended. Choreography varies to incorporate elements of neo-classical burlesque and erotic dance, and new routines are introduced every 2-3 weeks. Wear workout, yoga, or stylish dance attire - whatever you feel fierce (and won't overheat) in. Bare feet or clean indoor sneakers for the first half of class, option to wear heels in the second half of class. Music may be explicit; this class is not recommended for anyone averse to floorwork or high impact. Perfect for anyone looking to feel empowered by moving the body their mama gave 'em. Water bottle highly encouraged.

TESStimony:
Your girl, Tessie - has never been great at choreographed moves. ODB at the club aka free-style shaking is one thing, but even as a cheerleader, the choreography was not my strong suit.  What I love so much about Studio Pulse is it's a true extension of Stephanie's spirit: kind, inviting, motivating, passionate, and fun!  I took around three Vixen Fitness classes right when I moved back to Anchorage, and even with being a bit behind personally on the choreography, I never felt intimidated or like I was holding the class up.  Stephanie is an INCREDIBLY skilled and accomplished dancer and choreographer - with no ego.  Her love for dance and desire of bringing dance to our community and a part of people's lives is so apparent and contagious, I felt nothing but empowerment and joy during Vixen Fitness (and honestly any other class I have taken at Pulse!)  There is a true FITNESS aspect to the class as well so get ready to WORK + (T)WERK!
I absolutely encourage you to give Vixen Fitness a shot next Wednesday.  Try something NEW!  The classes build on each other with choreography and we all know practice makes perfect aka it's best done in a dedicated series - but try it out first, and see why I was so excited to go back for more and PROMOTE with this photo shoot!!! ;)
