Art of the Catwalk, an AFAA-certified and 2012 Tally Award-winning pole-dance and fitness studio, is a venue for all women to tap into their wild sides regardless of age or build. The team of experienced dancers and coaches lead a diverse lineup of classes designed to stretch, tone, and choreograph. The team complements pole-dancing classes with Zumba, yoga, belly-dancing, and boot-camp courses for every fitness level.

Art of the Catwalk can also gussy up physiques outside of the fitness studio with an onsite full-service salon. It also employs Catwalk Kittens from Pretty Kitty Productions, a promotion company bent on spicing up most any event, to infuse personal parties with gravity-defying dance moves and infectious DJ beats.
