REVOLVER STUDIOS MISSION STATEMENT
We believe ALL bodies deserve to enjoy dance and fitness in an inclusive and supportive environment.
We’ve observed, studied, and experienced first hand the ways in which a body-shame and diet culture centered society has caused significant harm to all aspects of our total health. We know there is a better way.
At Revolver Studios, we don't take the word "inclusive" lightly. We believe deep down in our toes that fitness must be accessible to ALL bodies. We believe in helping all people feel welcome and celebrated in the body they are in RIGHT NOW. We acknowledge that the fitness insustry has historically catered to thin, white, heterosexual, able-bodied individuals. This means people who do not fit within those categories have been excluded; preventing the majority from experiencing the countless physical, mental, and emotional benefits of exercise. We are committed to creating better access and representation of marginalized groups, specifically LGBTQIA+, people with disabilities, and people of all racial/ethnic backgrounds.
We believe in engaging in exercise to make our bodies feel good. We understand that fitness is not the same as aesthetics. The fitness industry standard of focusing on aesthetics takes a tremendous toll on our mental and physical health, in addition to excluding large groups of people. We know how many wonderful reasons there are to move our bodies that have nothing to do with outside appearance. Our students enjoy exercise for the benefit of socializing, stress relief, better sleep, improved endurance, stronger muscles for daily activites, reduced pain and tension, and our personal favorite -- FUN.
Revolver Studios has an excellent team of experienced and professionally trained staff. Our staff members are trained to teach to each individual person, celebrating what their body can do. Our instructors will challenge you, but always from a place of kindness, understanding and body-positivity. The entire team at Revolver Studios is committed to maintaining an environment free of judgment and full of encouragement. We guide instructors in using inclusive language and teaching techniques, and every member of our team is dedicated to on-going growth and education; when we know better, we do better.
We are changing the way society views dance and fitness, and we’re starting right here in our own backyard. Revolver Studios is committed to creating space for ALL bodies to enjoy movement and to growing a safe, supportive, body-positive community.
