STUDIO POLICIES

STUDIO BEHAVIOR     Fly Together Fitness expects all of our members to uphold our community standards and commitment to diversity. We have a zero tolerance policy towards discrimination, harassment, or any type of violence or abuse. Please join us in welcoming every individual.

LATENESS     Classes begin on time. Please arrive 10 minutes early. If you are more than 10 minutes late for a class, you are not allowed to join class. You will not be permitted to switch to another day and will not be refunded your money.

CANCELLATION     If you need to cancel a class, please do so no later than 5 hours prior to the start time of the class. If you cancel within the 5-hour window, you will lose the class credit. For unlimited package holders, including for our introductory package, there is a $5 fee for late cancellations and a $10 fee for no-shows.

FOOD     Please do not eat or drink anything besides water in the main pole area. Snacks (preferably non-crumbly items) can be eaten by the benches/ storage cubes. We encourage students to bring reusable water bottles that can be filled at our water fountain.

ALCOHOL AND DRUGS     Alcohol consumption and drug use are not permitted prior to or during physical activities at the studio. If you are under the influence when arriving at our studio, for safety reasons, you will not be allowed to participate, and will not be refunded for the class.

PHONES     Out of respect for your instructors and fellow students, please no phone conversations, texting or emailing during class.

PICTURES AND FILMING     We encourage students to film themselves both as a record of their progress and as a learning tool. However, please respect your fellow students’ privacy. Obtain permission if someone else is in your frame, or wait until class is over or for an All Levels pole class to film your video.

COMPETITION     Fly Together Fitness is committed to creating a warm, welcoming environment. While we support and encourage students who want to compete as a way to celebrate personal growth and meet people in the pole dance community, we are not competitive with each other. We all deserve to celebrate ourselves wherever we are at in our fitness journey.

FEEDBACK     We encourage honest feedback and open communication. Talk to us or send us your thoughts, ideas, and concerns. This is YOUR space. Help shape it.

FAQ

What should I wear to class?

  • For beginner pole classes, please wear shorts. Skin contact is needed in order to grip the pole and perform many spins and tricks, so it is important to have your legs exposed. Leggings or sweatpants may be worn during the warm up, but please come with shorts underneath. 

  • For advanced pole classes, more skin is needed to stick to the pole. Fitted shorts (e.g.“boyshorts,” shorter bike shorts, or pole/dance shorts), tank tops and/or sports bras are appropriate. .

  • For all pole classes, please do NOT apply any lotion or oils 8 hours before class. This will make the pole extremely slippery and hard to grip! 

  • Remove all jewelry to prevent injury and damage to the poles (and to your jewelry). If you wouldn’t wear it to the gym, don’t wear it to pole class!

  • For non-pole classes such as flexibility, feel free to wear something comfortable like shorts or leggings.

  • Heels are not required for any of our classes, but are strongly encouraged for Stiletto Dance. Kneepads are also recommended for Stiletto Dance and Pole Choreo. 

  • We try to keep our floors clean! Please do not wear street shoes in the studio. Heels, dance shoes and clean sneakers are ok. 

What class should I sign up for?

  • If it is your first time pole dancing, we recommend the Intro to Pole class. Most students will take this class 3-5 times before moving on to Pole Level 1. 

  • If you have previously taken pole classes, please review our level descriptions and “Frequent Flyer” card to determine which class is appropriate for your level.

How do I book using MindBody?

  • You can access MindBody on our website or on the MindBody app where you can find our full range of classes and prices.

Do I need to sign up in advance? Can I drop in?

  • We recommend booking classes ahead of time to ensure your spot! However, if there is space in a class, we do accept drop ins, but please arrive at least 10 minutes in advance so that we can check you in.

What if I'm not strong enough?

  • Good news – strength is something you build after you start pole dancing! There are zero requirements for Intro to Pole and many of our other classes, so check out our class descriptions and sign up today.

Can I get an extension on my class package?

  • The expiration date on class packs can not be extended.
