On a slightly sad note we will be stopping the classes at Godalming, Beth has now got a new job which means she will no longer be working in Godalming but she will still be teaching in Camberley. Thank you to all the students who took classes there and big thanks to Beth for hosting them.

You will now be able to grading’s with Purity. This option is available to all students, the grading’s will only be held in Reading, but you can work towards them in class. To be a part of the Advancement Accreditation Program you need to become a member of Pole Dance Community, this costs £30 and can be brought through Purity, details can be found here – http://www.puritystudio.com/pole-grading-qualifications.html

UK Amateur Pole Performer (UKAPP) are now taking entries for 2011. The heats are located around the UK, don’t be afraid to enter, there are many categories from beginner level to the more advance, all they ask is that you are not already a paid pole dance performer (and they do check!). Their website is http://www.ukamateurpoleperformer.com/

A bit of spinny pole has started to be introduced this year to all of my Intermediate and Advance classes in Reading.

There is an open day at the Camberley venue, Tomlinscote Sports Centre on Saturday 29th January, 10am-2pm, this will be great for those who would like to give pole dancing a go for free!

A production called ‘The Naked Truth’ will be on at the Camberley Theatre in January.
It is about 5 woman who learn pole dancing for a charity event – www.camberleytheatre.biz/events

Please note that with all Purity classes they are lessons rather than pole jams, which means you must follow the teachers instruction rather than swapping moves with each other. We believe this is the safest way to run classes, especially as all the teachers have been trained on how to teach moves safely and can work out if you are ready for certain moves. If you see someone doing a new move and would like to give it a go then by all means ask your teacher, I’m sure they will be happy to teach it to you, or give you advice on what moves will get you ready for it.

Camberley Start Dates / July Updates

Hello Pole Dancers

NEWS

A big thank you to all who came to the Purity Summer Pole Jam last Sunday, it was great fun and nice to meet some new faces too. A huge well done to Jade Mcphee for her first ever pole routine. I did a routine too and the video can be found on my blog.

We now have start dates for Camberley, we shall be holding a beginner taster evening on Monday 23rd August and courses will start on Mondays from September 2010.

Unfortunately our instructor Leanne who covers Wraysbury will now be leaving, she has been promoted in her job so she is very excited but also sad at the same time to be leaving, I’m sure you will join me in wishing her all the best with her new job. The location will be continuing so bookings can still be made.

I have started dancing in Cyberdog most weekends (except July), Cyberdog is a clubbing shop based in Camden and sells lots of funky clothes. I will be back in there from August, if you are interested in seeing me perform then let me know and I’ll let you know which dates I’ll be in there as they vary each week.

I have been updated and adding new photos to the gallery page on the website – http://www.puritystudio.com/photogallery.html and also adding photos of the teachers to their profiles – http://www.puritystudio.com/teachers/index.html.

My First Shift at Cyberdog!

I had my first shift at Cyberdog in Camden on Saturday 29th May 2010, it went so well, even if my legs were tired from jumping around at the Pendulum concert the night before!

Turns out I had the timings wrong it’s 1pm-5pm so its 4 hours rather than 5 hours, I think that made a big difference. I had to pace myself, but still managed to have enough grip to do a few knee holds…I have some nice bruises from them! When I had the grip I did some lovely split grip holds from up the pole, someone came over and wondered where the strings were!

They changed the music downstairs to suit pole more, I was dancing to some funky electro rather than hard house, this made the whole shift much easier and I think it works well with the pole.

Looks like I will be back there on the 12th or 13th June.

Fantastic Weekend!

I have been out and enjoying the lovely hot weather this weekend, yesterday I went to Camden with Jason and had my Cyberdog Audition at 12.30pm. I was there ready to dance in time to some funky house (the hard music doesn’t kick in until later in the day), I went on the pole for 20 minutes, after about 10 minutes of high energy bouncing I was covered in sweat making it very difficult to pole. I was extremely hot after my 20 minutes but was very pleased to find out that I had passed!!!

I will have my first shift on Saturday 29th May 1pm-6pm!! I’m going to dig out all my old skool Cyber gear ready.

After my audition we went to Covent Garden to see a Chinese Pole act. This guy was recommended to us from someone else in Equity. We turned up just in time to see Ruben (think that’s his name) start his performance, he was very comical during his show which made him extra interesting to watch. His moves were incredible, but they all involved him risking his life for his art. If you are in Covent Garden at weekends then do try to go and see him, look out on Jason’s blog as he got some photos of him.

Just when I thought the weekend couldn’t get any better, I find out that a friend of a friend is looking for help with their horse, Zela. So now I have a new horse to look after a couple of days a week!

Audition at Cyberdog!

On Sunday whilst shopping in Camden I noticed that Cyberdog has now got a pole!! I have been into Cyberdog many times over the years, more often when I was regularly dancing at clubs like the Fridge and SEone to get my funky clothes for gigs.

For those of you who don’t know, Cyberdog is the best shop in the world not only for clubbing gear but also to get you in the party mood! The whole shop is decked out with UV lights, shop assistants that look the part, and banging hard house all day. At weekends they have podium dancers up on the platforms, it has always been a place I wanted to dance but with all my evening gigs in London it was never an option and then I gave up podium.

As they have now got a pole I decided to enquire, I am booked in for a trial in 2 weeks time, I am keeping everything crossed that I will pass, even if I don’t at least I have done it once!

Wish me luck!
