Purity Pole Levels **UPDATE**

So this year Purity has been going through some big changes. I have made my beginner course accessible to those who want to wear leggings. After all, it’s about how you move, not what you wear! That being said the content on beginner pole dance has changed, which has had a knock on effect to the rest of the classes.

Also I have stopped teaching pole tricks, which includes all the big inverts. You will no longer be able to climb the trick ladder with Purity, as we are more focussed on the dance side of things. Don’t be fooled, floor work is hard! There will still be some inverts practiced, but it will only be those that have some relevance to lower third pole tricks. These will be of main focus: Strong Basic Invert, Scorpio, Gemini, Inverted V, Super Girl and Shoulder Mount.

I have been working on my syllabus for all the levels, and have added in a new level to run as the next level up from Beginners, this is called Improvers. If you were in the old Improver class, it is now called Intermediate. If you were in the old Intermediate class, it is now called Advance. This is just a name change, none of you have moved times, except for the handful of students I have spoken to already.

I have also added in an extra Freestyle Class on a Thursday to try and eat up some of the waiting list. Spaces went like delicious hot cakes, to those first on the list.

If you have any questions, by all means give me a shout. Thank you for bearing with me, whilst I am trying to make Purity an even better place, along with keeping up with the demand, and also trying to remain sane… ish…

Why Have You Stopped Teaching Pole Tricks??

So this question has come up lately. After teaching pole dancing, including pole tricks for 13 years, why have I decided to stop teaching pole tricks now?…

In July 2017 Purity is about to become an actual ‘Pole Dancing’ school, by that I mean I am waving good bye to the pole tricks side of things, and focusing on the dance side more.

I have a few reasons… I feel that the dancing has more to offer people, myself included. I am all for body positivity and a happy state of mind, and nothing gives this better than the dancing side of things, any dancing for that matter! I am not saying that pole tricks doesn’t give you this either, it’s just that dancing does it way better in my opinion. I feel it is a bit of a metaphor for life – “It is not how many tricks you can do, but how you move.

I feel people can hide behind tricks, and ignore the dance, which is strange seeing as it is called Pole Dancing.

“Is it because you can’t keep up with the new tricks?”
This makes me laugh! Most people can’t keep up with the ‘new’ tricks! I don’t even try, never have done! I have my own way, perhaps because I am an old school poler, I love the old school tricks. Trick wise, I think you can’t beat a beautiful Scorpio or an Extended Butterfly. I have spoken to some of my old instructor friends during the recent years, who started teaching around the same time I did, they stopped years ago when the tricks went crazy, they said “I don’t know how you keep going through all the madness that pole has turned into“. But I can’t understand why they stopped for that reason, I got into pole because I love dancing, the tricks were always a side line.

I have had a few pole related injuries this year, and it has made me re-evaluate what I want
from life. Do I love the doing/teaching pole tricks enough to put my body through it anymore? The answer is no, (not sadly no, just no). I am happy about my decision. Life is too short to do things we are not happy with. Don’t get me wrong, you may still see pictures cropping up on Instagram of me doing pole tricks, I am not giving them up, I am just stopping teaching them. I still love pole, and don’t want to lose my passion for it.

This year I have been training hard in a new area for me, (well newish), I am becoming a Level 3 Pilates teacher. I trained in Fitness Pilates in 2008, but I have decided to go sh*t or bust with it now! I feel that pole dancing is great for helping the mind and body in so many ways, but I would like to do more to help people.

I think Pilates is a key for the body to stay fit and functional for life, and I want to bring that to more people.

I want to thank all of the Purity Students, both past and present for all their support. I do hope you all continue your pole journey with Purity, so we can dance together for many years to come.

 

 

Learn to Pole Dance in Leggings!

I like to try and make pole dancing accessible to everyone, no matter what age, shape or fitness level, but there has been a barrier I have been up against in all the years of teaching pole dance… I hear it time and time again… “I don’t want to wear shorts”

So this has got me thinking, why don’t I create a class where you don’t have to wear shorts, but you can still reap all the benefits that pole dancing has to offer. The sense of achievement, growing confidence, making new friends and getting fit are just to name a few of the great things that people experience when they come to pole with Purity Studio in Andover.

If this takes off, I will also create Improver and Intermediate levels for pole, where there will still not be the need for shorts. Moves are always geared towards peoples individual needs any way, but the class as a whole will be much more dance based. It is Pole Dancing after all.

New class will start on Thursday 23rd February 2017 at 6.25pm to 7.25pm – click here to book.
Advance bookings only, as we only have 1 student per pole in each class.
I recommend knee pads, but heels are not essential, but you can wear them if you want.
