Where can I park?
There is free 4-hour parking lot on the side of the building. There is also additional 2-hour free street parking throughout the neighborhood.
Are your classes for all genders?
Yes! Raven Studios is an inclusive, safe space studio. We are accepting of all individuals.
What happens if I late cancel or miss a class without cancelling?
One class credit will be removed from your Class Pack or, for members, a $12 late cancel fee will be charged to the credit card associated with your class. Students with extenuating circumstances or illness are eligible for one late cancel/no show without penalty every six months. Email email@example.com to have this credited back to your account. When this option is used, classes cannot be scheduled for one week after without permission from management.
What do I wear and bring to class?
We recommend bringing your own water bottle. For skills classes (L1, L2, L3, L4, & Spin Pole classes) you will most likely need contact for grip, so shorts are recommended. For advanced level classes where more grip is needed, a sports bra is reccomended as well. Please remove jewelry and refrain from wearing lotions or oils before class.
I've taken some classes before, or I am visiting from out of town, what classes can I take?
Please read through our Class Descriptions and Prerequisites to find a class that fits your skill level. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and desired class to sign up. The instructor will assess your level after a warm up to ensure that you can perform the required movements safely and help you determine your level.
What is your leveling up/testing in process?
We have certain moves and foundational elements required for each level. We require students to complete a skills assessment to be cleared for each level. Students can be assessed at the end of class by the instructor - simply let them know during instruction.
