You've got questions, we've got answers.

1. How do I sign up for classes? 

Please make sure to sign up for the class of interest in advance so you can secure a spot in class. The studio uses MINDBODY for scheduling, so you can either sign up for class directly from this website (click box below) or through your MINDBODY app. 

2.  How much does a class cost?

Please click the box below or a full list of our pricing options. New students, please note our new student deal offering 2 weeks of unlimited classes for $60!

3.  I’ve heard pole dancing is great exercise and it sounds fun… but I’m still a little nervous about signing up.  What can I expect?

At Studio Rouge, you will find students from all demographics and fitness levels having a great time in a supportive, relaxed environment.  We have two goals – to provide quality dance instruction with an emphasis on safety and to ensure our students enjoy their time at the studio.  Class will begin with a warm up and conditioning exercises, then we will focus on a beginner routine that incorporates basic transitions and spins to get you acquainted with the pole. Please arrive 10-15min before class to get settled and fill out liability waivers. Still feeling hesitant? Register for our Intro to Pole class and see what pole dancing is all about.

4.  Level with me – do I need dance experience for this?

No!  Come as you are and you’ll be astounded how quickly you progress.  Have some dance classes under your belt?  Great!  Our instructors will build on your foundation and challenge you in new ways.

5.  Level with me again – is this just for younger people?

No!  This dance form is for anyone over the age of 18 with an adventurous spirit.  All ages, shapes, sizes are welcome at Studio Rouge and we want you (yes, YOU!) to come dance with us.

6. But what do I wear?

Wear your normal yoga/workout attire!  You’ll find students and instructors alike in yoga pants and form-fitting tanks/t-shirts for Intro to Pole and all aerial and exotic classes. As you progress to Pole 100, you will start wearing shorts for climbing (direct skin on pole contact is needed to safely train many pole moves).

7.  Anything I shouldn’t wear?

No lotions or oils!   They make the poles dangerously slippery for you and your fellow students. Also, no rings, bracelets or watches  – it will damage your jewelry and the poles.

8.  How many students are in your classes?  How many poles and aerial rigs?

There are 6 45mm chrome X-Poles per room (two class rooms total): Most leveled pole classes six students/class, but a few classes may allow up to 10 or 12 students.   
Maximum exotic workshop size is 12 students.
There are 4 aerial rigs: Maximum aerial class size is 8 students.

9. What kind of poles do you have?

We have 6 permanent mount X-Poles and 6 pole-away X-Poles.  They are 45mm chrome with both spinning and static modes.

10.  Is there a weight limit?

No weight limit on any exotic dance, twerk, chair, or flexibility class.
Pole weight limit is 250 lbs.
Aerial weight limit is 200 lbs. 

11. How do I book a class for a friend? 

After you click on the 'Sign Up' button for the class, you'll see a screen that defaults to 'Make Reservation For Myself'. In order to pay for someone else, check the radio button for 'Make Reservation For Someone Else'. From there, enter the full name of the person you are trying to pay for and check the box next to 'Pay for this other client'. After you click 'Make a single reservation', you'll be taken to a payment screen to pay for that person.

12.  My friend enrolled in Pole 100 and keeps encouraging me to sign up, too.  Could I come with her and just watch a class first?

Sorry.   For the privacy and comfort of our students, we do not allow observation at any time. 

13.  I’ve taken pole classes at a different studio.  How do I know which class level to sign up for at Studio Rouge?

We ask that you contact us via email before registering to discuss the right class level for you!

14.  I’m not sure if I’d be comfortable taking classes in a group setting.  What about private lessons?

Private instruction is a great way to gain confidence while learning at your own pace.  Any of our session classes or workshops can be taught one-on-one… just drop us a line!  

15.  Do you allow drop ins for classes?

Unfortunately, no. We require our students sign up online before class to reserve a space. Our classes can fill up, so it's important to make sure you will have a spot before traveling to the studio.

16.  Do you have a late cancel or waitlist policy?

Great question! We do! Please make sure to read them carefully (click link below) ;). 

17.  I think I want to come to class! Where should I park?

We have a small lot on the right side of the building. If that lot is full, you're free to look for parking on 3rd Ave. (do not park along the side streets of 3rd Ave - they are permit parking only). Please come EARLY to find parking!

18.  Does the studio allow men to take class? 

Yes! As of March 2019, the studio officially became co-ed and all are welcome. The only workshops that are ladies-only are the Lap Dance Fundamentals and Strip Tease workshops (offered seasonally).
