QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
new to pole.
I've never taken a pole class before. Is there a beginner class?
No. Scarlet Studio does not offer beginner classes. Unless otherwise specified in the class description, Scarlet Studio classes are Open Level and non-sequential. This means each class is not based on the previous class and you are able to join a class no matter your ability or experience.
Scarlet Studio believes that having multi-level classes is beneficial to the beginner student as well as the seasoned student. This format allows the beginner to see how progressions work and it allows the seasoned student to share their experiences with the beginner student.
A single class is $30.00
A Pole class and a Liquid Motion class are both $30.00. We do offer package deals. Please see our Plans & Pricing page. We are not able to offer monthly packages at this time.
what to wear.
What do I wear to a Pole Class?
Dress in layers. Class begins with a warm up, we recommend starting class with all your layers on and removing clothes as you become warmer. You will need bootie shorts to climb the pole. We recommend arriving to class with your bootie shorts underneath comfortable sweatpants or yoga pants. You will need foot protection. We recommend socks or peds. We sell foot pads for dancers in studio for $25.00.
what not to wear.
DO NOT WEAR LOTION.
We repeat, DO. NOT. WEAR. LOTION. Especially lotions with oils and silicones. This is for your safety and the safety of the other students. If you have lotion on your skin and you are touching the pole, you are leaving residue on the pole that often takes more than a few cleanings to remove. Poles must be clean and free from residues, lotions or oils for students to climb, sit or perform tricks on safely.
Do not wear rings, big dangle earrings, bracelets or necklaces. They have the potential to interfere with your workout, damage the poles and cause injuries.
HOW DO I SIGN UP FOR A CLASS?
We suggest using our booking application. Our website host, WIX, has a built in booking application called SPACES. On almost every page on our website there is a prompt to download this application.
The Spaces App is easy to use. You can buy a single class or a package on it. You can see who your instructor is for the class you are attending. You can see how many students are in class with you. You are able to book, cancel and reschedule yourself for classes on the app. You are even able to message us directly via the app.
We do not share our students contact information with anyone. We ask that when you create your profile in the app that you use your real name, first and last so we don't call you by your email account.

What do I wear to a Liquid Motion class?

what about men?
Are men able to join a Pole or Liquid class?
Yes. Men are welcome to join a Pole class or a Liquid Motion class if they are truly there to participate and learn. Scarlet Studio values its students and we strive to make everyone welcome and comfortable in all of our classes.

Can I still take a Pole class?
We think that these are great excuses but not great reasons to not try something.
Pole is like any other physical activity - you come to class to learn, to get stronger, to get better. The more you do a thing the better you become at doing that thing.
The real question here is, "do you want to take a Pole class?"
What is the difference between a Pole Class and a Pole Party?
Pole Parties are more novelty.
A Pole Party is great for a group of friends who want to try pole dancing for fun or to see if they like it enough to join a weekly class.
Why is there a difference in pricing between a class and a party?
Pole Parties are not part of the studios regularly scheduled program, therefore instructors need to adjust their own personal schedules to host the party. Party formats are fun and free flowing with less structure than a weekly class often making teaching a party a bit more difficult to plan for. Ultimately, a party is a more difficult job for the instructor.
For information on planning a Pole Party please email us at info@ScarletStudioFitness.com.
How old do I have to be to take a class?
Scarlet Studio's policy is 21 years old to attend a class or plan a party.
