Do not be late!
Anyone who arrives late WILL NOT be allowed into class and WILL be considered a late cancel. This is for your safety (a proper warm up is mandatory), and respect (cuts into other people’s time).

You should be dressed and ready to start your session at the scheduled time. You may arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled class to avoid being late. Please note, we currently do not permit entry to the studio prior to this timeframe. This is a safety issue, and we ask that you respect both our trainers and other students by showing up on time as tardiness is disruptive to the training experience we aim to provide.

BPF does not do any scheduling for students, this includes cancellations, changes or reservations, unless you want a private event

If you are looking for a more intimate group experience, or time for group photos, videos & fun, then we suggest a private group lesson reservation. Your group will be the only guests inside the studio during your reservation. Classes are not private experiences, and we suggest groups of 4 or more reserve a group lesson. Groups that make a class reservation and become disruptive will be asked to leave without refund.

Group lessons are 60 minutes long and based on per person pricing. Everyone in the studio must pay, regardless of participation. For larger groups we suggest making a reservation for our 90 minute pole party, which will give you more pole time. For pricing options please visit Pricing
