Preparing for Class:
Q: How far in advance should I sign up?
ANS: There are occasionally same-day reservations available, but the best time to sign up is anywhere from a few days to few weeks in advance. If you add yourself to a waitlist, chances are very good that you will get in. It’s definitely worth doing! You must pay for a position on the waitlist. If you do not make it into the class, the credit will be returned to your account (not refunded).
Q: Do people usually get in from the waitlist?
ANS: Yes! Up to 3 out of the 5 people from the waitlist typically get into the class and off of the waitlist, so it’s definitely worth doing! See Full Waitlist details under “Policies”.
Q: What should I wear?
ANS: Wear whatever you’re comfortable in! It’s a very low key atmosphere. Most people wear t-shirts, tanks and leggings. Just be sure whatever you do wear you’re comfortable in and ready to shake it, shake it.
Q: What shoes should I wear?
ANS: We recommend that you wear sneakers.
Arriving for Class:
Q: How do I know where to go?
ANS: We list the exact location on our website along with the class. Note: You will not see “Banana Skirt” signage on the exterior of the buildings because we rent from larger facilities. Once you arrive on the studio floor, front desk personnel can tell you the specific studio to go to. You will know the correct studio by seeing the “Banana Skirt” sign on the door of the class.
Q: Do I need to bring a receipt or reservation confirmation with me?
ANS: As long as you pre-registered online and received a confirmation email, you do not need to bring any proof of purchase or registration with you but you will need to check-in with your name through one of our staff.
Q: What time should I show up for class?
ANS: Please arrive at least 15 minutes before class.
Q: What should I do if I’m late for class?
ANS: There is a 10 minute grace period. After such, you will not be able to join the class.
Q: Is water available at the studio?
ANS: Yes. All studios have either water fountains or water for sale. Banana Skirt often provides classes with complimentary bottles of water for attendees who forget to bring their own.
Q: Are there changing areas, lockers or showers?
ANS: Yes there are changing rooms at each studio we use, but it’s best to change in advance if possible due to limited space. There are no showers or lockers at any of our studios. You’ll bring your things into the class with you.
Q: How many people will be in the class?
ANS: There are usually 20-40 students per class, depending on the size of the studio.
Q: What will the other students be like?
ANS: Our students are “real people” of all sizes, shapes, levels and ages. Everyone is friendly, supportive and above all, love to have fun!
