Studio Paramour in search of new location after rain

September 12, 2018 GMT

Studio Paramour is in need of a new spot for its dancers.

The pole dancing exercise studio, 219 Front St., downtown, took on a lot of water during the recent stormy weather and the owner, Tiffany McDaniel, is searching for a new location. She is still holding classes in the Front Street building for now.

McDaniel said she is looking for a place to stay along the main drag while keeping classes in the current location for as long as she can. Studio Paramour opened in February and offers classes for anyone in the art of pole fitness and performance.

“I don’t want to leave Beaver Dam,” she said. “The rain was a little bit much on the building and it’s pretty old, so it needs to have someone come in and give it a restructure.”

She hopes to find a new place within the next few weeks as new trees and flowers are placed along Front Street.

“All of my ladies are willing to follow me,” she said.

McDaniel, a dancer from Michigan, came to Fox Lake in 2009 and has been active in pole dancing competitions since 2011. A single mother, McDaniel originally started pole dancing in a club to support her family before transforming the skill into a new direction.

Studio Paramour attracted attention earlier this year when the Rev. Michael Erwin of St. Katharine Drexel Parish in Beaver Dam sent McDaniel a letter, shared with the mayor and the city attorney, drawing a connection between McDaniel’s business, Dodge County’s three strip clubs and criminal activity like human trafficking and drug use.
