To follow are policy points for the studio. We take our studio’s policy seriously, so please familiarize yourself with it before scheduling any classes. Some sessions may have additional points so please be sure to read everything fully when completing the registration process.
*At Descending Angels, we pride ourselves on being a welcoming, safe environment for adults to explore movement. This is a safe space for all genders, orientations and all walks of life. Body shaming, slut shaming, bullying or other negativity is simply not allowed and will not be tolerated.
*Purchases are non-refundable.
*Packages cannot be shared or transferred to other students.
*Please arrive in time for class. We recommend arriving about 10 minutes early so that you may get settled before we begin. We cannot stress this enough – NO LATE ARRIVALS ADMITTED FOR ANY REASON – NO REFUND, NO RESCHEDULING, NO CREDIT. It does not matter if you arrive one minute late or 15 minutes late. Once we begin, we lock the door to bar disruptions to the session. Please be considerate of your fellow classmates and studio instructors as we set an atmosphere for safety, learning and clearing of distractions. Another major reason as to why we do not allow late arrivals is due to safety for the body. Each student needs a full and proper warm-up for the lesson ahead to safely prepare the body for dance and movement. Please check the sign on the door. If it says “Do not disturb”, it means just that. Do not disrupt the class that is in session. If arriving early, please wait quietly until the previous class has ended. You will need to take into consideration traffic, special events and parking when scheduling your time. We do not refund/credit if you miscalculate time, encounter heavy traffic, get lost (we are very easy to find and listed in Google maps), have a scheduling conflict, etc. Also, we have a schedule to maintain – both for the studio and for your fellow classmates – do not call/text asking that we wait to start the class for everyone because you are running behind. Please be considerate of others that you share this space with.
*A full 12 hours notice is required for rescheduling regular group classes (24 hours for private classes) for ANY reason. To reschedule your session before the 12 hour cut-off and receive the class credit, please sign-in to your Bookeo account. Other means of communication will mean delay in the scheduling process and therefor may mean forfeit of your class credit. If you need to cancel with less than a full 12 hours before class time, for ANY reason, you will be charged for the class but please update your registration in Bookeo.
*Workshops, series/courses, special events and parties cannot be refunded or rescheduled. These sales are final and only valid for the day/time originally booked.
*Due to the physical nature of these sessions, they are not for anyone who has bone, muscle or joint problems, high blood pressure, or anyone who has been pregnant/given birth in the past three months. If you have any questions about whether these sessions are appropriate for your body, please contact your physician.
*Absolutely no alcohol or other mind/performance altering drugs before or during any sessions. Offenders will have to leave the premises. No refund, no credit, possible ban from studio.
*At times classes may be of a split-level. Do not attempt any movements that have not been broken down for you specifically.
*Please silence cell phones.
*No pictures or videos during class (exceptions – private parties, private classes and Practice Hour).
*Street shoes are not allowed on the dance floor. If you choose to wear heels, they must be proper pole dancing heels – Pleasers or Ellie. The studio will have a limited amount of Pleasers available for purchase for your convenience.
*Please be sure to read over your class information when you schedule. There is a “General” tab that will give you essential information as well as a “What to Bring/Wear” tab. If you do not come properly prepared for class, you may not be allowed to participate. No refund will be given.
*No spectators (exception – private parties and all spectators are counted in your headcount, no exceptions).
*Please make sure the studio has a current contact number for you. In the rare event that there is a change in the class schedule (weather, instructor illness), you will receive a text.
*Please avoid bringing in excessively large bags. There are cubbies to put your belongings in, but we simply do not have the storage area for large bookbags, luggage, etc.
*Students must be 18 or older. Please bring proof of ID.
