Pole dancing and the aerials are skills that require practice to advance. Open studio time
frames are times in which we encourage any members to come in and practice the skills they
have learned in class on their own. Any level of student is welcome to come in and work on
anything they desire. Instructors may be present to give advice and to help spot. Because
there is no formal instruction at this time, any activity is at the risk of the member! Please be
smart and safe about what you are ready to do on your own and stick to level appropriate skills!
Open studio time is free to members and people with classes on their account. Non members
will be charged the same fee as a drop in class and the instructor reserves the right to limit
what non members are allowed to do. Reservation required.
*Pole and Aerial classes are divided into levels based upon a level system. Please read the class descriptions when choosing your class and place yourself in a class that will be challenging but within your abilities!
*Pole Fitness requires skin exposure to help maintain a grip on the pole. We highly encourage anyone partaking in a pole class to come in a tank top and shorts. Higher level classes may require the torso to be exposed. Please wear whatever attire you feel comfortable with but keep in mind that bikini shorts and a sports bra are perfectly acceptable attire here! Because skin grip is essential for pole, try to avoid using any body lotions before class, as they will make your skin and the pole extremely slippery.
*Aerial classes require skin to be covered to avoid painful burns on the skin from the lyra or fabrics. The ideal aerial outfit covers your legs completely (tight leggings are perfect) as well as your torso. We encourage members to wear a shirt that will also cover your underarms, but this is not as important as keeping your legs and midsection protected!
*All other classes, it is your discretion of what to wear. We want members to feel comfortable as possible at all times. Normal workout attire is acceptable for all classes!
*Yoga mats, straps, and blocks are provided at the studio in limited numbers. We encourage members to bring their own!
*We sell several types of grip aids at the studio, but you are welcome to bring your own!
