“I have always been interested in Burlesque, but no where in Dayton offered anything like it. When the first Burlesque 101 class at Femme Fatale came up, I was there! I’ve been hooked, or rather obsessed, ever since.I’ve never had a lot of self confidence, but now I am more comfortable performing in front of people and feeling good about myself. Burlesque is for any woman no matter what size, shape, or fitness level. I’m thankful everyday for these classes and all the amazing people I’ve had the chance to meet.” - Holly, 28, Loan Support Specialist
