Yes! Our Intro classes are currently offered in-person! It meets once a week for one hour, for four weeks. Wearing a mask in class is optional, as the room allows for social distancing. However, we still require wearing a mask in the common areas. The cost for the series is $99.
Are you having in-person group classes?
Yes! Our in-person enhancement classes vary as we constantly monitor COVID numbers. Click ‘Sign Up’ above to see our current schedule. The description of each class will describe if it is virtual or in-person. For those that have taken at least an Intro-level class, we are offering memberships with opportunities to make appointments to use the space on your own time and at your own risk. Our enrollment classes are currently offered as a mix of in-person and virtual classes. Our virtual classes are sent as weekly pre-recorded videos for those to practice at home or with their in-studio appointments. Want aerial equipment at home? Click here!
What are your health and cleaning policies?
Our facility is professionally cleaned on a regular basis. We require a mask in all common areas: office, cubby area, hallways, etc. We do not require a mask while you are working out in a rented room. Our appointments only allow for up to two people in a room to give everyone the ability to socially distance themselves. Cleaning products are provided along with cleaning instructions for the equipment. Hand sanitizer stations are placed generously around the building.
Can I sign up for an 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 socially-distanced private lessons or Intro classes. If you have previous aerial experience, please email firstname.lastname@example.org 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 with each level. 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 our drop in 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 but safe. The more you learn the stronger you become mentally and physically. Once you learn the basics an average hour workout can burn anywhere from 600-800 calories a class and will build that lean toned healthy body.
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. 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. Stiletto Pole students are encouraged to bring heels or platform stilettos and socks or leg warmers that go past the knees for floor work. Dance Fuzion students need gym shoes. All students must bring plenty of water to class. Students may also bring their own yoga mats to the studio if available. 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. If your class has been purchased using a Groupon or other coupon you must bring your coupon/ voucher to class for registration.
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.
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.
