Common Questions

What do I wear?

Can I transfer classes from one location to the other?


A: Yes, purchased classes can be used at any location including pop-ups.


Is there parking?


A: All parking is FREE! Free parking is available at Hazel Parker in their parking lot and on street parking is also free (1 and 2 hour parking spots)


Do I need to have a ballet background?


A: No! Classes are instructed in such a way that you can have no dance background and pick it up easily. If you do have a dance background, you will love hearing your favorite ballet terms like plie, releve, and will recognize 1st, 2nd and 5th positions.


I saw that your classes are located at Hazel Parker Playground, does that mean they are outside?


A: Classes are located inside, in the long white building in front of the tennis courts at Hazel Parker.


Why are Raising the Barre’s classes so different in price from other studios?


A: Great question! Raising the Barre has partnered with the City of Charleston Recreation Department. That means we share the space with other small business owners like ballet instructors, art teachers, and summer camp programs for kids. It also means that we have low overhead so we don’t have to charge the high prices of a studio. The result? A price that you can afford with a professional trained instructor maintaining the integrity of the barre workout that you know and love.
