Are classes for all levels of fitness?
Movements can be modified for any fitness level from beginner to advanced. No dance, barre, or pilates experience is required unless notated in the class description.
Do I need to make a reservation?
In order to ensure the best level of instruction for each client, we limit our class size in order to provide the space and equipment for each client. We encourage signing up in advance to ensure times are blocked to fit your busy schedule. As a drop-in, we encourage you to check if space is available before arriving or signing up on our wait list. Our system will send a text message if class space becomes available. You can reserve classes online or call the front desk at 208-344-1955 to make a reservation. Walk-ins are welcome, but we cannot guarantee a spot at the Barre.
What happens when I sign up on the wait list?
Waitlisted clients: In the event you are added to a class from the waitlist, we will immediately send you an email and text notification. We will also attempt to call, unless you are added to a class after normal business hours.
What if I signed up and can’t make a class?
For all classes, reservations must be canceled 4 hours prior to the start of class. The best way to cancel is go into your Mindbody account, login and hit cancel next to the class you will not be attending. If you cannot cancel class online, please text or call the studio at 208-344-1955. If you need to cancel a class for the next day and it is past our normal business hours, we ask that you do so online. If you fail to cancel within the stated cancellation window or do not show up, we will deduct that class from your existing package or series.
When should I arrive to class?
New Clients — you are requested to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of your first class in order to fill out paperwork and ask any questions to our instructors.
What should I wear to class?
We encourage you to wear comfortable clothes that don’t restrict movement. Shoes must be removed before entering the studio. If you have dedicated dance shoes (PPS), please make sure they are clean and light soled. For Barre classes, you may wear soft ballet shoes, grip socks or bare feet. The dance floor does have padding to ensure impact classes keep you safe and supported.
What should I bring?
An open mind, water bottle, toe-socks or bare feet. If attending a dance class, please have clean court or soft dance shoes as our floors are not designed for heels or running shoes.
Will my class package expire?
Yes, 28th Street packages automatically expire one (1) year after the purchase date. It is our policy not to extend the expiration unless it is for an emergency medical situation. If you are unsure of when your package expires, we will gladly assist you by phone, email or personally at the studio.
Can I transfer my class package to a friend or family member?
When purchasing a class card or unlimited membership, it is only good for the person you are purchasing for. Class packages are not transferable to friends or family members unless there is an emergency medical situation. Please contact us for more details if needed.
Can I bring my cell phone while I take class?
Cell phones and other electronic devices are not permitted in class unless silenced and must be on vibration mode to prevent interruptions during class. If you are expecting an important call, the front desk will be happy to hold your cell phone and notify you if needed.
Where can I put my belongings?
Although we have taken measure to keeps belonging safe and within visual distance of classes, we are not responsible for clients’ personal belongings. We do have open cubbies for anything you wish to bring to class.
In order to achieve the best class possible, please keep talking to a minimum while the teacher is instructing. Please return all equipment back to its place at the end of class. We will supply plenty of ‘green’ cleaners and towels to wipe down props after class.
