FLY TOGETHER FITNESS
EMPOWERMENT FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
At Fly Together Fitness, we believe that pole dancing is for everyone. We also recognize that financial barriers can impact the accessibility of pole fitness. We are excited to announce the launch of the Empowerment Fellowship Program, which aims to increase access to our classes. In our first round of offering this program, we encouraged applicants who are experiencing financial difficulty, who identify as members of historically marginalized communities with less access and representation in pole, and who are committed to being a part of our pole community for the fellowship duration (6-12 months), to apply.
Fellowships provide reduced-price access for ~6-12 months of Fly Together Fitness classes. Our initial open application period ran from January 10, 2023 - January 31, 2023 and selected recipients were notified on February 14, 2023. We awarded eleven fellowships at different tiers based on need and availability to fellows who demonstrated commitment to pole dancing over the award period, potential for personal and collective empowerment through pole fitness, and barriers to accessing our classes at our current pricing.
We are so thrilled to welcome our first cohort of fellows to our studio and are excited to see what they will accomplish over the next year! If you were not selected, check back in early 2024 when we will re-open applications for a new cohort of fellows 💙. As always for any questions about this program, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
