Dear Pole & Dance Students,
My name is Amy, Owner and Founder of Pole & Dance studios. I know you’ve received a lot of communication from our teams over the last 48 hours. Unfortunately, we’d decided that we cannot wait for coordinated Government direction to close our studios. Effective immediately, both San Francisco & Oakland Pole & Dance will be closing. Our #1 responsibility is to keep people safe and looking back, I think I should have made the decision to close the studios last week. I regret not taking swifter action.
We will be closed at least through the end of the month. All auto renewals for members will be put on pause during the studio closure period. Since many of you have asked, our employees will be paid their full wage for these two weeks. Some of you have asked how you can help and support the studio during the hard time. There are two ways.
- We will be hosting Livestreams through the studio’s Crowdcast. These livestreams are good for viewing up to 30 days after the live event. We’d love to see you at the first one, an Active Flexibility class today at 1pm. Here’s the link: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/active-flexibility-with
- Purchasing gift cards is a great way to stock up on gifts for friends. You can purchase through our online store on Mindbody. Thank you so much for being a part of the Pole & Dance community. So much love to all of you and we hope to see you after this pandemic is over.
