MindBody (MBO) is our online scheduling system.
You will create a MBO account and use it to sign up and cancel classes, as well as see all of your scheduling and purchase details.
Once you have an account, you can purchase a single class, class package or membership.
Each client must have their own account and class credits. Accounts and class packages cannot be shared with a family member or friend.
in a pole class?
Each class begins with a welcome and floor warm-up.
Following this, the instructor teaches key skills for the class style & level.
The instructor provides demonstrations, verbal cues, and spotting to help students unlock new pole skills.
At the end of class, there is a cool down, and then everyone gathers their things and exits the pole room.
If you want to sit for a moment after class, you can join us in the Studio B lobby.
Do I need to get in shape
before I take a pole class?
Nope! Pole 101 and Pole Level 1 are for people of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels.
From your first pole class, you will begin to build strength, flexibility, dance skills, and endurance.
For Pole Level 1/2 and above, dancers must master the Required Skills to join the class.
Sign up for the Class Level that fits your current pole skills
Our Class Levels are created with your wellbeing in mind.
For everyone’s safety, it’s important to go to the right class for your skill level.
Pole 101 is for first-time students only. Pole Level 1 is for beginners with little or no experience.
As you master skills, you will be ready to move up to higher class levels. In each class description, we have clearly indicated Required Skills.
If you are unsure about moving up, ask your instructor for guidance.
If you attend a class that is too advanced for your skills and strength, your instructor will let you know and guide you to the appropriate level.
Even if you have pole experience, we recommend that you start with beginner classes to get accustomed to the LM teaching style.
If you are not sure which class is best for you, contact us,
we’d love to help you!
Students must be on time for class. Five mins before the class start time, students may enter the pole room. For security, we lock the studio doors 10 mins after the class starts. Once the doors are locked, we do not allow anyone else to enter.
What to Bring
When you book a class, read the class description for What to Bring.
For all classes, it’s best to wear yoga or dance clothing that allow for a full range of motion.
For most classes, you want to bring
Students need dance shorts for classes that include pole climbing and aerial skills.
Most items are available for purchase in the studio lobby.

Arrival | Parking
Plan to arrive at least 10-15 mins
early to find parking
On the day of the class, plan to arrive at least 10-15 mins early to find parking. There is plenty of street parking on Weddington St and there are paid parking garages on both sides of the street. Our studio is a street-level unit in the Lofts at Noho Commons. Students check in at the lobby in Studio B (Unit 114).
Studio B also contains our private lesson room. Private Lessons and Semi-Private Series take place in Studio B. For regular classes, proceed to our main pole room next door to Studio A (Unit 113).
Students must cancel their class via their MBO account at least 8 hours prior to the class start time, to retain their studio credit. Students who cancel less than 8 hours prior, will forfeit the class credit.
Video & Pictures
You may want to take video and pictures to capture your pole progress. When you do this, be mindful of others. Everyone has a right to privacy in the pole room and no one should be recorded without permission. If you want to get a video of your instructors demonstrating a skill, be sure to ask first. Do not post images of other people to social media without permission.
Students who are on the class waitlist will be automatically enrolled in the class when another student cancels. It is the responsibility of each student to check the MBO schedule to see if they were enrolled in class via the waitlist. Please enable text notifications on your MBO account to get waitlist updates.
Class Code of Conduct
Remove shoes before entering the dance space
Place personal belongings in the cubby.
Turn off your phone ringer and put your phone away. If you must take a call, please step out of the pole room.
Find an open spot on the floor for the warm up.
Students are expected to follow the lesson plan presented by the instructor. If you prefer to do your own practice, you are welcome to join us for Open Pole or Studio Rentals.
Use a crash mat any time you practice new aerial skills. Ask for a spotter when practicing new inverted moves.
Challenge yourself but also listen to your body. When learning new pole skills, discomfort is expected. However we want to avoid sharp, intense pain. If a movement or skill is causing intense pain, let your instructor know. They can offer a modification for your body, or you can skip the skill for that day.
We do not allow anyone to watch or audit a class. Only those enrolled and participating in class can be in the pole room.
When your class is complete, gather your things and exit the pole room. This allows the next class to begin on time.
If you have additional questions or just want to sit for a moment, join us in the Studio B lobby.
