It's been more than a year since pole dancing instructor Melissa Rose, rolled, danced and slid her way into the Manassas fitness world with the opening of Aradia Fitness. 

Now, she's preparing to open a second Aradia Fitness franchise location on down the road in Loudoun County—Ashburn to be exact. 

“I am thrilled to open a second studio,” Rose said.  “Aradia has a fantastic program that focuses on building strength and making pole dance fitness accessible to the every day woman. I’ve been teaching pole dance fitness for over six years and I’ve seen the positive impact pole dancing has on women’s lives.”

The new studio will open this month at 20604 Gordon Park Square, Suite 150 in Ashburn.  This is good news for Manassas ladies working in Loudoun County who can't beat Route 28 traffic in time to catch a class after work. 

An open house is from 5 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25 in Ashburn. The event is free and open to anyone. 

Aradia Fitness started in Canada 10 years ago and has open 12 U.S. locations, including the one in Manassas in March.
