Open Climb: supervised training time in whatever discipline you like! Prerequisites: three classes (at SILKStudio or elsewhere) & instructor approval for any given apparatus, including pole.

Studio Statement on Pole Arts

Since it opened, our philosophy has been: we strive to nurture a long-lasting love for creative movement, facilitate meaningful personal transformation, build community through a culture of inclusivity and play, and encourage self-expression through creative action.


In alignment with our philosophy, the studio would like to formally express its support of the many diverse expressions of pole arts. We support not only the acrobatic side of pole dance, but also the exotic/sensual branches of this unique and empowering discipline.

We understand that the presence of poles and pole classes may cause discomfort for some. If any aspect of pole dance raises discomfort for you, we encourage you to bring a mindset of curiosity to this new studio addition. Lean in, remember that everyone has their own personal reasons for choosing any apparatus, and hey, maybe you will even discover that pole dance is for you!
