Empowering all people through the Art, Strength, and Community of Pole Dance
NO POKE, NO POLE. PERIOD.
(UNLESS IT'S 1-ON-1)
On September 15, the Government of Alberta reinstated a state of public health emergency. In keeping with these updated measures taking effect at 12:01am September 20, 2021, we will be implementing the Restrictions Exemption Program. This will allow us to continue operating classes to individuals who provide proof of vaccination, medical exemption, or a privately-paid PCR or rapid test within 72 hours of their class.
Between September 20th and October 25th proof of single vaccination will be sufficient; following October 25th proof of double vaccination will be required.
What does this mean for you as students? As long as you've got one of the above, nothing changes! Just bring in your proof and hit the dance floor. If you are unable or unwilling to provide any of the above evidence, we will not be allowing you access to the studio at this time. We take the safety of our staff and students extremely seriously, and while it grieves us to have to make this decision (we love all of you!) it wasn't a tough one for us to make. Empower Pole Fitness is (and will always be) a place where students can feel safe, comfortable, and supported.
If you don't meet any of the above requirements to attend group classes, fear not - you can still get your fix. Similar to previous restrictions before vaccines were available, we are also able to offer private 1-on-1 sessions by appointment only. In these sessions we can work on your pole goals from a safe distance (our poles are 3m apart already). Contact us via email to set something up!
In addition to these updated public health measures, we are continuing to require masks to be worn at all times when travelling around the studio. Masks may be removed when students are within their 'pole bubble' and safely distanced from their classmates. Instructors will wear masks when spotting.
Mask up, get yo' jabs, wash your f***ing hands, etc. We liked seeing your faces in person; let's work together to avoid the Dark Times of Zoom Classes making an unwelcome return.
