FAQs

If you are new to our studio, your first step is taking a 3-week Intro Series

If you come to us with previous pole or lyra class experience, contact us to see which membership option is the best fit for you. In the meantime, create an account by clicking ‘Register’ at the top. Create an account profile and read our Class Policies. Or download our exclusive mobile app to register an account.

If a class is waitlisted, that means that all the available spots in the class are taken up. But the waitlist serves as an extension of that class roster. As spots open up in class, the next person on the waitlist will automatically be added in to class. So only sign yourself up for the waitlist if you still want to come to class. If you can no longer attend a class that you are waitlisted for, remove yourself from the waitlist immediately so the next available spot can go to the next person in line on the waitlist. Since spots tend to open up the day of class, be prepared to attend class up until two hours before class time.  Please review our Wait List policy on our Policies page.

Yes, all of our classes are available to all genders. 

Both you and your friend need to create accounts through our website first. Click on Register in the menu. Please call the studio at 717-207-9337 to allow us to assist you with signing up your friend for class. Please note: buying an extra class on your MindBody account (for a friend) isn’t sufficient for signing up him or her for class with you.

FOR POLE CLASSES Skin is bae! Bare skin helps you stick to the pole. Be prepared with shorts, a tank top and sports bra. Pants and long sleeved shirts are great for the warm-up but terrible for pole work as fabric will slide right down the pole, giving you no grip. All jewelry needs to be removed. ***Underwear is not appropriate attire and you will not be allowed to participate if only wearing underwear.

FOR LYRA CLASSES Fitted pants or leggings and a fitted shirt that covers your torso is a must to avoid “lyra burn” caused by friction. All jewelry needs to be removed.

FOR FLOOR WORK AND STRETCHING CLASSES Leggings and/or legwarmers are highly recommended. It is important to keep the body warm when deep stretching muscles. Floorplay requires leggings, shirts that cover the back, knee pads and socks or platform-approved heels.

Water, a sweat towel and appropriate workout attire for class. We have yoga mats, yoga straps and blocks.

While our Aerial classes are for members only, we do offer our Grounded classes to non-members. You are encouraged to sign up online as soon as possible for the class you would like to attend, to guarantee your spot in class. We do accept walk-in students only if a class is running and there is an open space in class, however please call the studio first to ensure a spot is available before arrival. Plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early for registration if this is your first visit.

Pre-registration is required for our Intro to Pole and Intro to Lyra series . If there are less than 3 students signed up for a class, it will be cancelled within two hours of its start time, which is why we encourage students to sign up ahead of time.

Bummer. We are unable refund your class but are happy to reschedule. We will always do our best to accommodate your needs. Make sure you cancel your class reservation at least 6 hours prior to class to avoid losing your class credit. If you do not notify us of your cancellation and therefore absent for class, you will not be credited back for that class. Monthly members will be charged a $15 absence fee.

Absolutely! Pole and lyra build upper body strength. Our class progression is designed to help you build strength while learning fun moves on aerial apparatuses. 

The manufacturer states the apparatuses have a general 250 lb weight limit. However we’ve had more weight on each apparatus. The poles are industrial-grade stainless steel and bolted into the floor and ceiling. All of our classes are open to students of all shapes and sizes.

Even if you already have some beginner-level experience, whether it’s from taking previous classes elsewhere or self-taught, we still encourage you to take our Intro Series because it also serves as an introduction to our studio culture, and how we approach teaching pole and lyra.

However, if you are intermediate to advanced in your practice (meaning you’ve been consistently training for 5+ months), please call the studio to find out which class is best for you.  

Heels are not required. Pole is easier to learn barefoot. You will work your way up to adding the weight of the heels to your workout if you would like to use them later on. You will only be allowed to wear approved “dancer” heels that have a proper rubber bottom and secure backing as they are safer and appropriate for this workout. Regular high heels are not allowed. If you really want to swing around a pole in heels, you are encouraged to attend our Sexy Basics and Exotic Pole classes.

Aerial classes are identified by level and prerequisites. If a class doesn’t specify a prerequisite, anyone without prior experience can take that class.

Really?! Would you feel comfortable being watched by random strangers while YOU took class? The answer is no.

DO NOT PUT ANY LOTION on your hands or legs at least five hours prior to any of the aerial classes. Sweating will release the lotion back to the surface, causing you to lose grip and slide down the pole, silks and lyra which can be dangerous. DO NOT WEAR ANY JEWELRY to aerial classes as it can cause damage to our equipment.
