VIXEN STUDIO 2017: Q&A

photo-nov-13

If you read my previous post, you know how excited we are about the new studio. You were also able to get a sneak-peek of the internal layout… can you say FAB!  As eager as we are to move-in, and as awesome as this is going to be, change is always a good thing. I plan to update the blog frequently to keep you in the loop every step of the way.

In the new space, we’ll offer a full schedule.

If you are currently a member of the #VixenArmy, you have may have received an e-mail about our Membership Pre-Sale.  It is important to take advantage of this pre-sale to take advantage of our best rate and added perks. This offer lasts until we officially open Vixen Workout Studio in Wynwood.

All new memberships qualify for our pre-sale rate of $120 a month until we officially open.

Here’s a Q&A to answer some of the recurring questions we’ve been receiving:

Q: If I purchase a pre-sale membership, what is billed today and when will my card be billed again?

A: To lock down a pre-sale membership, we need a payment equal to one month.  This payment is your first month and will activate when the studio opens.  Ex. If Studio opens March 14th, your next billing cycle will be April 15th.

Q: Why am I being charged for not showing up for a class?

A:   In order to provide the best possible experience for our clients, we will be limiting the number of sign-ups per class to avoid over-crowding.  In order to improve your experience and be able to offer a membership at a price that you are used to, we need to set some guidelines. By not showing up to class you keep another Vixen Army member from attending class and the space is lost.  If you fail to cancel and do not show up, your credit card will be charged a fee of $15-$20 depending on your membership.

Q: Why do I have to pay to take an additional Vixen class per day ?

A:   With a membership you can take 1 Vixen class a day.  On average our members take 3 classes a week which brings your cost per class down to less than $10.  To ensure the best experience for all of our clients, we need to limit the class sign-ups to avoid overcrowding.  Having one dance room during the studio peak hours of 545pm/7pm/815pm, we need to set guidelines to ensure all of our clients have the opportunity to dance.

Q: Can I wait till the studio opens to decide?

A:   The discounted membership is only offered until the studio officially opens.  If you’ve fallen in love with Vixen in the past, you will LOOOOOOOVE us after experiencing the studio.  It’s only a 3-month commitment.  You can decide to cancel your membership after the term has ended.

Any additional questions or want to inquire about our pre-sale?

2017 will mark a new era…

(Everyone should know what that feels like)

June 2012, I vividly remember the feeling of my heart dropping t0 the pit of my stomach as the HR representative left my office.  She broke the news that the company was closing down and everyone had to leave…NOW.  You see, I was already let go from a corporate finance job due to downsizing and this was the first job I was able to land after months of searching (Being a former back-up dancer and choreographer isn’t a skill set thats valued in Corporate America).  At the time I was living at my moms house with my 2yr old and I was unemployed, again.  I just couldn’t catch a break.

I woke up one day after allowing myself to sulk in self-pity for a few days and decided that I was going to open a Dance Studio. I’ve taught dance since I was 18yrs old.   I’m really good at it and most importantly I love it.  I broke up with dance around 2008 after convincing myself that in order to be an “adult” I couldn’t continue pursuing silly childhood dreams.  So for me, this was like calling up the ex-love of your life to say: “Leaving you was the biggest mistake of my life… will you take me back?”

(Below are images of mine from Sept 2012-Dec 2012/ Poems, images, memories that inspired Vixen)

I found a quaint affordable space and my family put all of our pennies together and I opened Street Jamz Studios in September 2012.   A month later I started a class called “Video Vixen”.  The class was a way for me to relive my glory days as a performer and for my friends to experience my life’s addiction for the first time.  It’s been quite the journey ever since.

The last 4yrs have been filled with so many amazing memories and lessons.  I’ve met so many amazing women and have shared in their pain and triumphs.  I’ve made a lot of mistakes and I’ve had my share of hurdles…  I wouldn’t change a damn thing.  I am so grateful for all of it.  It’s groomed me to become wise and prepared me for whats to come. That’s the thing about life, you can’t have the good without the bad.  The bad, however, is what prepares you for the good.  Without the bad, GREAT can fall on your lap and you won’t even know what to do with it.

That being said, 2017 marks a new era for Vixen.   We will be moving into our own home and I couldn’t be more excited.  The purpose of Vixen has always been to give women the opportunity to experience themselves as the grandest, most powerful, confident version of themselves.  To have a safe place where they can feel alive and free.  Up to now, we’ve had limited control over the experience of our clients and I’m so excited to finally be able to offer the true Vixen Experience from the moment you step foot in the door.

The Vixen Workout Studio will be opening it’s doors January 2017.  I want the studio to resemble what it feels like to be backstage in a concert venue or a marquee theater.  The dance studio will be called “the stage” and they’ll be large vanity mirrors and make-up stations resembling an old Hollywood dressing room.  I’ve added a sneak-peak of what the studio will look like below.  I’ll keep you guys updated on the process and hope to see all of you in the new space.  Love & Light, JJ
