Frequently Asked Questions
What types of classes are offered at Gilded Studio? While we get a lot of attention for our pole dance classes, it is only part of what we do. We actually have amazing fitness classes, Pilates classes, and some of the best personal training in Boston.
How big are your classes? Unlike a lot of other pole dance studios, we like to keep our classes small. Every class feels like a semi-private because we cap our pole classes at 4 clients and our regular fitness classes at 6 . This allows us to customize every single class to each students level and ability.
How old do you have to be to take classes at Gilded Studio? All our classes and pole dance sessions are 18+.
Do you have any showers or changing areas? We have a private bathroom as well as separate changing areas, but, alas, we do not have a shower.
Is there a weight limit for pole dancing? Nope! People of all sizes are welcome to take our pole dance classes.
Do you offer pole dance parties? Yes we do! Contact us to discuss dates and details.
What should I wear to pole dance classes? We recommend bringing knee pads, leggings, shorts, and a tank top/sports bra but please wear whatever you are most comfortable in. Shorts or grip leggings are required if you would like to learn how to climb the pole. Skin contact helps a lot! Also, PLEASE do NOT apply lotions or oils to your skin for at least 12 hours before your pole dance session.
I am *insert gender identity here*. Will I be welcome in your pole dance classes? Yes! A thousand times yes! All genders are welcome in our group pole dance classes and in our one on ones. As a queer owned business with a non-binary owner, we especially love working with gender non-conforming and trans folks.
