FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What do I wear to class?
Whatever you feel comfortable in, however shorts are encouraged for pole classes. Feel free to bring a pair of leggings, knee socks, and/or knee pads for floorwork in pole classes. You should NOT wear ANY lotion on your hands and legs the day of your pole class. Sweating will release the lotion back to the surface, and you will be sliding off the pole. Normally we dance barefoot, but feel free to wear heels (must have an ankle strap). Leggings are encouraged for all other classes (aerial arts, flexibility, and grounded movement). Please remove all jewelry when attending any class. Wearing jewelry during class WILL damage our equipment.
What to bring?
A positive attitude and a mindset that you'll leave the studio feeling stronger, healthier, and amazing. We have yoga mats, blocks, and straps available for use during class, but feel free to bring your own. Water, Gatorade, and Protien Bars are on sale at the studio.
What is open practice?
Self guided open practice time in the studio. The studio will have poles, aerial hoop, aerial fabric, mats, blocks, straps and bands available to train on. During open practice there is no formal instruction. Use this time to develop and fine tune your own practice.
