Who ARE these Pros in the City?

A friend of mine -- let's call him JR because ... well, those are my friend's initials -- just sent me a link to an event sponsored (offered?) by "Professionals in the City - Philadelphia." JR wanted to know what I thought about it. So you can get the full effect, and to save you time so you don't have to click the link to the announcement -- I am providing the text and photo from the actual event notice:
THE ART OF EXOTIC DANCING (WOMEN ONLY) Wednesday, November 9 at 7:00 PM Pros In The City Thumbnail - striptease.png This class will be the most exciting class you've ever taken in a gym! This class is for the everyday woman who wants to let her hair down with no experience necessary to have a good time. You'll learn flirty fundamentals and sexy dance and floor moves and the art of striptease for your own intimate pleasures. This new revolutionary method of working out enables a woman to embrace and unlock her femininity and sensuality. Important note: Please bring the following items with you to class:
  • a ladies button-down BIG shirt or a man's button-down BIG shirt (we will learn how to remove it); a large sweatshirt can also be used
  • high heels to dance in, such as high heeled pumps or mules (because they are easy on and off); sneakers are fine for certain parts of the class
  • please wear comfortable clothes, such as yoga pants or gym wear
Ladies should arrive at 6:45PM for prompt check in. We will start promptly at 7:00PM. When: Wednesday, November 9 from 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM. Where: Koresh Dance Studio 2020 Chestnut Street Philadelphia, PA Price: $35.00 if purchased by 5 p.m. Friday, October 14
Pardon me if I don't provide the link for purchasing tickets. OK. My first reaction to this was: "What the ...?! Exotic dancing ... for a networking group??!!" I mean, just exactly what kind of "pros" are they targeting with this ad? JR agreed and then started brainstorming what the next event might be. JR's best idea: Next Month, "Starting a Home-Based Prostitution Ring." I wonder what kind of Power Point presentation and group roleplay would be involved in that gig. Actually ... I'd prefer not to think about it.
