Coronavirus Studio Policies 2021

360 Pole Dancing – Updated Coronavirus Information and Policies

Great news, the studio can finally be open again for group classes from Monday 17th May 2021 and we're so excited to have you back! To adhere to the current guidance, protect you and everyone else using the studio there have been a few changes to the structure of our classes which may be different from the last time you attended. [document updated 11/05/2021]

  • A face covering must be worn in all communal parts of BV Studios. This includes all corridors and the bathrooms. You may remove your face covering once into your pole space in the studio.

  • All classes will now be for a maximum of six students + one instructor (ie. one per pole).

  • As before, all classes must be booked and paid in advance via the new BOOKWHEN booking system which includes a *waiting list* feature in the booking system to help manage our reduced capacity.

  • While we are running at reduced capacity, discounted class packages will not be available.

  • Classes will be reduced to 1 hour to allow for additional cleaning time and so that there is no cross-over of students between classes.

  • If you’re unable to attend, you can rearrange/transfer your class via the new booking system up to 48 hours before the class with no penalty. Due to the reduced class size, after this time you’ll lose the class. [For Beginners Courses, there will be no transfers available]

  • The studio “lockers”, storage boxes, and changing area will be out of use. Please come ready for class and bring a personal bag that is big enough to hold all of your clothes etc. Leave any unnecessary items at home or in your car.

  • On arrival, you can choose a pole/space and it’ll be yours for the duration of the class.

  • Please remove your shoes as you arrive in the studio.

  • Each pole has its own cleaning station containing disposable blue roll, anti-viral spay (for the floor) and alcohol spray (for the pole). You’ll be required to sanitise your pole and floor space at the start and end of your session.

  • The studio’s yoga mats, bricks and other shared equipment will not be available. For Stretch Classes please bring your own kit. You may also like to bring a mat to pole classes for floor-based movements and drills.

Please help us keep you safe:

  • Obviously, don’t come to the studio if you have recently developed any of the current indicator symptoms for coronavirus, if you live in a household with someone currently symptomatic, have recently returned from abroad and need to quarantine, or if you have been asked to isolate by NHS Test&Trace.

  • If you arrive more than 10 minutes before the start of class, please wait in your car or socially distanced outside. Do not congregate in groups before or after classes.

  • On arrival in the building please wash your hands with soap & water at the ground floor toilets, before you come to the studio.

  • Spotting should be for emergencies only. Be mindful of your own ability, especially after a break. Do not put yourself in the position to require emergency spotting!

  • No physical contact such as hugging or handshaking. Please also don’t share pole grip or other personal items.

  • No shouting or singing. We’ll have the music at a lower volume to help with this.

  • Face coverings must be worn in all communal areas of BV Studios (all corridors and bathrooms). You may remove your face covering once into your pole space in the studio. The advice is still that face coverings should not be worn while exercising.

  • Stay within your designated pole area and keep socially distant from other students in neighbouring areas.

  • If you need to cough or sneeze, use the tissues provided in your cleaning station.

  • Use the bins provided for all disposable items, and return used pole cloths to the bucket.

  • Please leave promptly at the end of your class. Timings of classes have been adjusted to avoid any cross-over of students.

360 Pole Dancing will:

  • Follow and promote compliance with the current Government guidance

  • Use online booking to limit class numbers and enable social distancing within the studio.

  • Clean the main studio space and equipment daily before classes commence.

  • Provide clean and fresh pole cleaning cloths for each participant.

  • Provide cleaning materials for students to sanitise their own area and equipment before and after their class.

  • Provide hand sanitiser to be freely available at all times.

  • Regularly clean and sanitise all touch points within the studio. (usually before/after each class group).

  • Only reintroduce skills requiring safety mats and spotting once it is safe to do so.

  • Provide a QR code for NHS Covid-19 app check-ins.

  • Record attendances to support NHS Test&Trace efforts.
