Frequently Asked QuestionsIf you like video, click below. If you prefer text, it’s below the video!
Do you offer pole fitness or pole dancing?
No, we do not offer either but we have a lot of fun and sassy classes for you to choose from!
What Do I Wear to Class?:
No need to wear high-heels or anything fancy… Show up wearing something comfortable. If you want to show up wearing stilettos and a racy outfit, you are welcome to! But when you join us for the Teaser, just show up in something comfortable to move around in.
Do you allow men?
Nope. We don’t allow men in any of our classes. The only time a man is allowed in the studio is when we have our “Showcase Night” at the end of the session, where students are invited to bring their loved ones. Cat (or any instructor) doesn’t coach men in private sessions. NO MEN ALLOWED, PERIOD. No exceptions.
Is there nudity?
Absolutely NOT. Your comfort level is our concern and we strive to make sure that you are having fun while building your confidence! There is no nudity in class… ever. As racy as it ever gets? Pasties at our burlesque shows. (This is reserved for the members of our burlesque troupe, The Va Va Voom! only, not students.)
I am trying to register for my free class and the system won’t let me. What do I need to do?
Here at Vitality we offer only one free class per student. If you have used your one free class in the past (whether you were able to attend or not), the system won’t allow you to register again. If you have registered in the past and were not able to come or you are still having booking issues, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I come and watch a class?:
Yes! We encourage our potential students to come in and watch. We only request for you to email us ahead a time so we may know to expect you. You can reach us at email@example.com. We always push women to attend our FREE teaser class BEFORE making any choice on classes, prices, etc. It happens every week on Saturdays, we do a mini lesson, and we drink mimosas, and offer you a huge discount on your 1st month’s membership. Check that out on the website or on Facebook…
Where are you located and is there parking available?
You can find us in the Smulekoffs building at 333 1st St SE Ste 350 Cedar Rapids, IA 52401. We are located on the 3rd floor. There is a parking lot in front of the building. During normal business hours, (M-F 8:00 – 5:00) you will need to pay the meter. Nights and weekend classes the parking is free. You can get directions here.
