Do you offer Intro-level classes?
Yes! They meet once a week for one hour, for four weeks. The cost for the series is $99.
Do I have to be a member to take classes?
Nope! All private lessons, enhancement classes, and enrollment classes can be purchased on their own. However, appointments can only be accessed with a membership or an appointment package.
What’s the difference between enhancement and enrollment classes?
Enhancement classes are one time classes that do not require commitment past the individual class. Enrollment classes are a 4 week commitment. Enrollment classes build on each other to learn more content, skills, and technique.
What are your health and cleaning policies?
Our facility is professionally cleaned on a regular basis. Our appointments only allow for a limited number of people in each room to give everyone the ability to distance from others. Cleaning products are provided along with cleaning instructions for the equipment. Hand sanitizer stations are placed generously around the building. We follow all CDC guidelines regarding COVID-19 diagnoses.
Can I purchase individual private lessons at a level other than intro?
Yes! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a private lesson at any level!
Can I sign up for an in-studio appointment without taking classes?
Yes! However, this option is only available for those with previous aerial experience OR for those hoping to enter with a friend. For your safety, those with little to no aerial experience are required to participate in private lessons or Intro classes. If you have previous aerial experience, please email email@example.com to schedule a free assessment!

I’ve never taken a pole or aerial class before, what type of fitness level is required?
All of our enhancement classes are meant for all ages and fitness levels. Whether you live at the gym or avoid it like the plague, we cater our classes to challenge both physical spectrums. For our Pole, Aerial, and Burlesque classes we recommend that everyone take the beginner/ Intro level first. Within each level you will grow in strength and endurance and become more comfortable and self confident. We often hear, “I would come to class but I have no upper body strength, coordination, and/ or flexibility.” We are here to tell you that Femme Fatale Dayton is where you can achieve those qualities; you do not need them to get started!
Are the classes a good workout?
Get ready for the workout of your life! All of our enhancement classes sculpt the entire body giving you maximum results in minimal amount of time! Our goal is for you to actually have fun while working out…but be sore the next day! For our 4 week courses you are learning in detail about a physical art. We make sure you learn at a rate where you are challenged and safe. The more you learn, the stronger you become mentally and physically.
What do I wear and bring to class?
We suggest coming in layers because the studio and your body start off cool and warm up quickly. For pole, fitted shorts work best because skin is your friend on the pole! Fitted tanks are perfect for beginner pole classes and sports bras are ideal for advanced pole classes. Pole students beyond the Intro level are required to bring their own grip aids to class. Once students complete Intro, most students know which type fits their needs best. For aerial, comfortable fitted clothing is best, especially if it goes past the knee and shoulder. Belly Dance students are encouraged to bring a money skirt to class. Dance Fuzion students need gym shoes. All students should bring plenty of water to class. Students may also bring their own yoga mats to the studio, if available. And finally, we recommend bringing a notebook and pen/pencil with you to class! Liquid Motion® requires knee pads, and tall socks or leg warmers are encouraged.
Is there an age or weight limit?
No! You will find all shapes and sizes at our classes! No matter what age or weight, we customize your experience so that you are challenged and get a great workout. There is no age limit but we do require that you are 18 and up. The studio is aimed toward adults and some of the songs we play and content/classes are aimed for adults. Even if you feel your child or under age friend is mature enough for class, we must take into consideration the comfort level of all of our students. For this reason, there is no exception to this policy in our group classes.
What if I’m late to class?
Due to the layout of class, your safety in performing a whole warm up prior to getting on the equipment, and the respect of fellow students, no one will be admitted into class 10 minutes past the start time. Please make sure to plan appropriately for traffic and/or weather conditions before you head out. The only exception are students with overlapping class times at Femme Fatale who have received prior approval from the instructor to join the class late.
