*** It's a great day to learn pole dancing! See you tonight! ***
UPDATE #4: There are still 6 spots left, so you may claim a spot by arriving early with exact cash. Also, there are usually 3 no-shows for this event, so you just might be able to join us. Make sure to come early with exact cash.
UPDATE #3: We've been able to open some additional spots. Get them while you can!
UPDATE #2: The early-bird price has ended and the ticket price is now $25. Looking forward to seeing you there!
UPDATE #1: There are 8 early bird spots left and the price will increase from $20 to $25 when the early bird spots are gone or by Sun. July 6th (whichever comes first). To be fair to those who want to join in and are ready to make payment, I'll be removing those that haven't paid by Sun. June 29th. So make payment to *truly* lock in your spot (see the "Payment Instructions" section of the event posting). If you've already made payment, the Paypal email you received is confirmation that we've received your payment (no need to email me asking for ticket confirmation). I hope to see you there!
This one's for the women ONLY in our group!
Are you tired of going to the gym for the same routine on the treadmill again? Do you want to be able to combine FUN and DANCE into your workout?
Join us for this informative and interactive 2 hour session where we'll leave with a solid foundation of pole dancing and sensual movements. I have recruited Rania Jaziri, with 8 years pole dancing experience, to lead us through this workshop. We will be taken through a sexy, fun routine, where we'll learn the fundamentals along with a spin or two... like the Fireman, Martini, and Sun Wheel, along with sexy transitions. Strawberries and a mimosa included for each of us. No experience necessary!
We are privileged to have Rania Jaziri as our instructor. In addition to her 8 years pole dancing experience, she began studying ballet at age 6 and is a certified aerobics instructor and personal trainer with a special emphasis in step-kickboxing and dance exercises. Her studio, Jordin's Paradise, has been voted best dance company in DC by the Washington City Paper 2 years in a row, and it is the only studio in the DC area that certifies pole dance instructors.
We'll check people in, have strawberries and a mimosa from 7 - 7:30pm. Then after that, Rania will take us through the workshop.
The normal charge for this 2 hour session is $40 elsewhere. We've got an early bird special for this event of $20! The first 20 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Sun. July 6th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that, the ticket price will go to $25. We have a LIMITED number of spots so make sure to RSVP early and make payment to get the early bird price!
Also please know that your RSVP is not guaranteed unless we receive payment. When you pay, your online receipt is confirmation that we have received your payment.
Come join us, tell a friend, and let's learn the fundamentals of pole dancing!
Metro and Parking
The closest Metro is Dupont Circle South (Red line) and Farragut North (Red line). I suggest Metro / cabbing if you can. I also recommend using wmata.com for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage.
What to Wear
Please bring shorts and high heels with straps (if you don't have any, barefoot is fine).
Payment Instructions (Paypal account not required):
Please follow the instructions below for making payment (if payment by smartphone doesn't work, please try your computer). Payment at the door will be permitted only should the event not sell out. Most of our events do sell out, so we recommend you secure your spot online early. If you make payment for less than the current ticketed price displayed without prior correspondence, your RSVP will be removed.
1. Select "Yes" under "Will you attend?"
2. Enter the number of guests coming and click "Finish RSVP"
3. Click "Pay Now" at the top of the event posting near the ticket price per person
4. Verify correct dollar amount for number of people you're paying for, click "Pay Now" button
5. If you don't have a Paypal account, click "Pay with a Debit or Credit Card"
6. If you have a Paypal account, simply log in, and pay as you normally would via Paypal
We will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation as a backup. When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the Paypal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your Paypal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please take a moment to log into your Paypal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.
Refund Policy & Ticket Resell
Since we paid in advance for this event, all sales are final unless the event is canceled or rescheduled. Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. I suggest posting in the comment box for the event, that you have a ticket for sale. Work out payment between yourselves, and have the seller only send the organizer an email through their Meetup profile (do not comment in the comment box of the event posting) letting us know the full name and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person taking your spot. Thanks for understanding. =)
If you have any special needs (e.g. wheelchair, dietary for events with food included, etc.), let us know in advance (a week or more before the event) and we will do our best to accommodate. If you let us know the day of the event, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate. Thank you for understanding and we appreciate the courtesy of a heads up!
