Policies.

Reservations & Waitlist

          • While walk-ins are welcome, we recommend reserving classes online in order to guarantee your spot in class. For your convenience, we also have a free Bar Method app available for your phone. When you arrive at the studio, please check-in at the front desk so we know you have arrived and can ensure you have an enjoyable experience. If you do not arrive prior to the start of class, your reservation may be given away to someone on the waitlist.
          • You may call in your reservation up to 30 minutes prior to the start of class, however we strongly encourage using the online reservation system. We make this recommendation as the online reservations may book the class to capacity. We do not accept reservations left on our voicemail or via email.
          • Classes fill up quickly, but spaces will open up as clients reschedule. If you’d like to attend a class that is full, please put yourself on the waitlist. As soon as a spot opens up in class, you will receive an email notification. Please reply to the email immediately whether you can attend or not. Your spot in class is not guaranteed until you confirm.
          • Classes may be canceled if there are less than 3 people signed up for class.  This decision will be made at least 2 hours prior to class for daytime and evening classes and by 9pm the evening before early morning classes.
          • Barre class cancellations could also occur due to staff illness.  We will try to avoid this at all costs, but please be aware that this is a possibility

Cancellations & No-shows

    • Please cancel within one hour of class start time.
    • You may cancel online or by calling the studio.
    • We make this request to give all clients a chance to take your spot if the class fills up.

Late Arrival to Class

    • First time students may not enter a class late. Arriving 15 minutes early is highly recommended.
    • Returning students may enter an ongoing class up to, but not after, 10 minutes into class.

Studio Etiquette
