About AFV Exotic Arts

AFV Exotic Arts opened on July 14th, 2012. Since then it has become a safe space for all who enter. Students, male or female, are encouraged to be confidently and creatively expressive with their individual sensualities… Oh! Hello…

Come inside! Look around! Make yourself at home…

Private classes are tailored to YOU. Whether you choose to explore pole dance, chair dance, burlesque, floor, or all of them, the curriculum is designed to create an exploratory adventure as we discover how to bring YOUR sensuality into the light.

“What I didn’t expect was that it would turn into my new therapy.” ~ JFC

Taking classes at AFV Exotic Arts is an enriching process of honing your Self as much as training your body (something that goes beyond what most other studios offer). Yes, you will learn new skills, you will build strength, you will have fun, and you will learn choreography; however, you will also discover an underlying drive and focus that will encourage a thorough metamorphosis. You will change.

On the wall in the studio you will find a picture of a woman wearing butterfly wings. Above her head it reads, “If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies.” I found this image in my favorite store a few months before the grand opening. I thought, “That’s perfect. That’s that branding for the studio.” It was as if that picture were waiting for me to take it up to Charlotte, so that it could find its home on the wall in the studio.

I invite you to look into the mirror… Welcome to your safe space. I wish you a personal renaissance that will “Liberate Your Radiant Perfection.”

AFV Exotic Arts is a private “jewel box” exotic dance studio in Charlotte, NC. Pole dance classes, chair dance classes, burlesque classes, and pole dance parties are offered privately by appointment. Anyone, male or female, may book private dance classes and parties. All participants must be 18. I look forward to dancing with you!
