Whether you prefer to get onstage, dance along or watch a performance, we’ve got you covered this month!

Frisky Friday Striptease Dance Parties
House-Party-Fitness-19 cropWith so much going on this November, we’ve only scheduled one Frisky Friday so far. Since we had so much interest in our fall booty-centric session with Michelle, we’re offering a repeat chance to learn her super hot floor combo set to Chris Brown’s “Privacy.” Get ready to twerk up, down and all around as you dominate your own stage with a mix of sexy hip-hop and downright dirty floor. Bring kneepads if you’ve got ’em! Make sure to pre-register because these events have sold out in the past!

  • 8:30 p.m. in Midtown (1301 Locust St, 2nd Floor)

Pop Divas Dance-Off
Katy Perry, Rihanna, Janet Jackson, Madonna, Beyonce, Niki Minaj, Gaga, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Lopez, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears…you get the idea. They’ve all made waves on the pop scene, now we’ll “Shake it Off” to some of their greatest hits. Join an all-star trio of Philly Dance Fitness instructors — Michelle, Lee-Ann and Brooke — for 90 minutes of nonstop hip-shaking, body-rolling, chest-popping cardio dance routines spotlighting these and more queens of pop.
