PREREQUISITES

Our studio is proud to offer many beginner-level opportunities for our dance community.

However, we do have some classes that require a little more strength and coordination. 

Our booking software allows us to set prerequisite options, which means that new members will be required to start at a beginner level and complete a specific number of classes before advancement.  

We understand that everyones abilities and progress may differ. Our instructional Tribe is ready to assess and advance members appropriately. 

 

POLE & LYRA REQUIRE MODERATE CORE AND UPPER BODY STRENGTH

In Pole, you will be required to...

  • use strength to rotate around a spinning pole.

  • support yourself in various upper body and lower body holds.

  • build new muscle memory over time.

In Lyra you will be required to...

  • hang upside down from your knees & pull-up from this position.

  • perform skills while suspended in midair.

  • use total body strength to transition between postures.

 

INTERMEDIATE CHAIRLESQUE 

In Intermediate Chairlesque you will be required to,

  • move at a faster pace with control and balance.

  • learn and remember at least 64 counts of choreography. 

  • tackle isometric holds and perform postures that require core strength.

 

LEVEL Requirements

Level 1 & 2 - Combo skills class for members who have graduated to level 2 and for members who have trained at Level 1 for at least 10 classes

BOOKING

Booking an in-studio class:

Step 1. CHECK OUT our Class Calendar for the month and see which class piques your interest.

Our calendar can be found on the booking page of our website and posted on the community board at the studio. 

 

Step 2. LOG-IN to your account on your computer or mobile device. If you haven't already done so, download the branded Deviant app to easily manage your bookings on the go. 

 

Step 3. PURCHASE a Membership or Class Pack.

Monthly memberships can be purchased as a one-time transaction and they recur automatically every month. All memberships and class packs can be used to book classes at a discounted rate instead of paying more for a single drop-in rate.

 

Step 4. BOOK YOUR CLASS using the branded Deviant app or via the booking page on our website. 

All members are required to book their class(es), regardless of membership status. This enables the studio to keep track of how many participants are in the class and helps to manage our waitlists, if necessary. 

 

IMPORTANT WAITLIST INFO:

When a class is full, you’ll be given the option of joining the waitlist. Members do cancel, so many waitlisted members get promoted into the class. Waitlisted members are automatically promoted from the waitlist to the class, as space opens, based on the order of waitlist booking. Promotions can happen up to 4 hours before the start of class, which is our cancellation window.  If you can no longer commit to taking the class, you should remove your name from the waitlist. If you add your name to the waitlist, you should be prepared to take class. Automatic addition to class still adheres to our cancellation policy.

 

STEP 5. Check your inbox (or sometimes junk folder) for your BOOKING CONFIRMATION and review the important information, especially if you are new to our Manlius studio location.

CANCELLATION &NO-SHOW POLICY

Cancellations:

  • We have a generous cancellation window! Members have up to 4-hours prior to class to cancel or reschedule their booking without penalty.

  • Late cancelations, less than 4-hours before class incur a $10 penalty, regardless of membership status.

  • It is the members responsibility to cancel or reschedule their class! Members can cancel and late-cancel independently on the Deviant app without the assistance of the studio. 

 

No Show Policy:

When you book class and don’t show up, it prevents someone on the waitlist from attending and it’s rude. If you don't cancel or late-cancel your booking and then don't show up, you will be charged for the class and penalized for your absence, 

  • No shows will incur a $20 penalty, regardless of membership status. This is in addition to your booking fee! If you paid using a package you will not be credited the missed class. If you paid a drop-in rate, you are still responsible for the cost of the class in addition to the no-show penalty. 

 

Cancelations made by studio:

Our studio has the right to cancel class for any reason.

For example, low attendance of less than 3 participants, illness, and bad weather may all result in a class being cancelled. In terms of weather, our studio follows the FM school district schedule. If school is cancelled or delayed in FM, our morning classes are cancelled. If after school activities have been cancelled, our evening classes may be affected.

Early-cancellation credit:

If you cancelled within our cancellation window using a package, your class will automatically be credited to your account. If you paid a drop-in rate, a credit will automatically be linked to your account to use for future bookings. If you do not want a credit and would prefer a refund, you must contact the studio to receive a refund.
