360 Pole Dancing – Coronavirus
So, we’re back open on Monday 27th July and we’re excited to have you back. To adhere to the current guidance, protect you and everyone else using the studio we’ve had to make a few changes to the structure of our classes. [document updated 20/08/2020]
All classes will now be for a maximum of five (Edit: SIX!) students + one instructor (ie. one per pole).
As before, all classes must be booked and paid in advance. We have a brand new booking system (BOOKWHEN) 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’ll be allocated a pole 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 fully wipe down your pole and floor space at the start and end of your session.
Hand sanitiser is available in the studio, and you are encouraged to use it frequently (for example when taking a drinks break).
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 before you come to the studio.
Spotting should be for emergencies only. Do not put yourself in the position to require this!
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.
Please don’t wear a mask in the studio (this is the current advice for exercise), although you may choose to wear one for arrival through the corridors.
Stay within your designated pole area and keep socially distant from other students in neighbouring areas.
Please leave promptly at the end of your class. Timings of classes have been adjusted to avoid any cross-over of students.
