What do I wear for classes?
Work out/athletic wear is appropriate for all classes. Depending on your style of class, barefoot, ballet shoes, ballroom shoes, tennis shoes, or grip-socks are required for classes. No non-grip socks as the floor can be slick.
How old do you have to be to attend classes?
All of our classes are for ages 15+ plus, except for Vertical Fit classes. Any client under the age of 18 needs to have a parent or legal guardian sign a waiver before attending any classes. Vertical Fit is 18+ only.

Can anyone take your classes, regardless of fitness ability and/ or dance experience?
Yes, anyone can take our classes, regardless of fitness ability and/or dance experience. Our teachers are all professionals with years of experience in their fitness/ dance style and can create a positive and challenging environment for both, a novice client and the expert client.
What should I expect after class?
After yourclass, be sure to drink plenty of water so your muscles stay hydrated as they recover. You may be sore but stick with it as your body adjusts and gets stronger. Book your next class! If you are new to our unique classes, know that they can take a few classes to get the hang of, so be patient and give yourself time to learn the exercises and technique. We recommend taking class 3-5 times per week to get the best results!
