Guys are FREE!
Have you ever wanted to show your man what we really do at Adult Dance & Fitness? Here is your chance! Bring your man to any class we offer. He is always allowed to participate and try the moves. If he's the shy type and only wants to watch, that's okay! Make sure he brings a camera to catch all the action.
If he will be participating, ask him wear basketball shorts, t-shirt, and gym shoes. We're gonna make him work!

The energy in these walls is so positive. The atmosphere is unbeatable. I love the observation deck (for friends and families of students). The colors are vibrant yet relaxing. What can I say? I love this place!

This is her testimonial:
"I want you to know how much I seriously love you! I can't even begin to tell you how much you and the studio have meant to me. I started back with you this past February (I was taking lessons about 2 years ago as well but had to stop for a while) and I am seriously a changed woman! I was a TOTAL mess when I came in and signed up for classes back in February. I had put on about 20 lbs over the previous year and my self esteem was lower than it had probably ever been. I remember walking in the front doors and you and Niki were sitting at the front desk and I told you I needed to sign up and then I just started crying! It was so retarded! It was seriously a HUGE step for me though!
Since February I've lost 10 of the 20 lbs. though and I feel like the sexiest damn woman alive! It's been the biggest confidence booster for me and I know without a doubt it's because of the dancing that you provide at the studio. It's been such a blast trying all the amazing different dance styles and apparatuses. I've never in my life had so much fun and felt so good while exercising! I've also had the opportunity to make some GREAT friends that I will miss seeing SO much!
I'm TERRIFIED of putting those 10 lbs back on that I just managed to get rid of. I'm hoping to come in and buy a pole for our house in the next month or two when we can afford it so I can continue to work out and master some more moves and keep the weight off. I imagine my hubby won't mind too much either. ;)
Thank you Thank you Thank you! I'll be in touch!

One of our up and coming aerial students Natalie Wilson did a great job on the trapeze. Becca's daughter, Cambree, kicked off the aerial silk routines with a really great number that she worked very hard on. Our advanced aerial students did such a wonderful job at entertaining the audience. The highlight of the night was Sheena LaRose doing a death drop that exploded with rose pedals.
Our friends from Studio Soiree came out to show their support. Soiree girl, Lorina, did an awesome freestyle routine which included using our ceiling beams as a pole!
Big thank you to the helpers of the evening including Annie, Diana, Nikki, Justin, the two dudes that finished our wood flooring, Sheena, Chauntelle, Natalie, Steph, the other two dudes who found me on the side of the building having a nervous break down, and anyone else who was gracious enough to lend a hand. I had a blast!

We had our very first rails class at our Midvale location the other day. It was fantastic! I think it was a little more challenging than the students thought it was going to be...but they were troopers.
A big thank you to everyone who attended this class. As far as I know, this is the first class of it's kind. Rails stems from exotic dance clubs and we are so excited to main stream this unique apparatus.

"I'm a 31 year old mom of three. I have been involved in pole fitness for a year and a half. Very quickly pole became my stress reliever. Not only is pole a great workout, but it has boosted my self confidence as a woman. My body is more fit than it was in my high school days!
If I can do it, anybody can!!!!"
