While the kids are away, the Mums will play!

As the kids are going back to school, our next lot of Improver Pole Dancing lessons will be starting during the daytime on Wednesdays at 11.05am, from the 12th September.

Improver is the next level up from Beginners, so do make sure you have completed Beginner Pole Dance first.

Daytime Pole and Pilates FREE Launch!

Daytime Pole Dance classes and Pilates classes are launching on the week of 11th June 2018. First week is free, but you must contact to book in, as there are a maximum of 9 in Pilates and 6 in Pole Dance.

If you decide to book in June for a 5 week block there is a £10 discount. Making Pole Dance £40 instead of £50 for 5 weeks, and Pilates £30 instead of £40 for 5 weeks.

Pilates is a great class for keeping your body fit and healthy, working your core with slow controlled movements, both standing and mat work.

Pole dancing is great if you want to improve you relationship with your body, whilst learning a new skill. It will get you fit, but once you start you will realise it is so much more than that.

Sexy Pole Dance Workshop

Purity is hosting another Sexy Pole workshop, normally we hold one in the Summer, but time passed me by. So we are doing it near my Birthday! Yay for me!

Our song will be WOW by Marilyn Manson, it’s a pretty filthy track, which is going to make it oh so fun!

This workshop is available to those who have completed a beginner pole dance course in the past 6 months. No matter how long you have been poling, expect your body to ache for a few days after!

Maximum is 1 student per pole, so plenty of time to nail the routine. Feel free to dress up… or down 😉 You are welcome to wear shoes, no higher than 8″ heel and knee pads are a must have for everyone.

Bring your ‘can do’ attitude and prepare to have some fun. If you are good I will give you some cake!

Changes to Purity Pole Students

From the 17th April 2017 Purity Studio will be launching a new timetable. This will affect anyone who currently takes pole dancing lessons with Purity.

Purity runs ‘pole dancing’ lessons as a form of exercise and fun, we believe that the dancing comes before tricks, it is called pole dancing after all. These changes will reflect this fact. This is not the only reason, it will also produce classes which are much safer, as there will be more strength building for those who want to do tricks.

Below is the first proposed timetable, this may be subject to change, as I need to know who is going to adapt to the changes, and who won’t.

You will see there is Intermediate Pole Dance and Improver Pole Dance, you may not think anything has changed, but these classes will be purely dance based, and will involve dance, floor work, transitions, spins, pole sits and lower third pole tricks. This will be danced out in a variety of ways including, choreographed, freestyle and freedom dances. The style will be mainly authentic, but pole flow and other styles may be put in too.

You will also see there are Pole Trick classes. These classes are purely for tricks, learning inverts and combinations, as well as building up strength. This class has 2 requirements:

  • This is only to be used for those on memberships, as a 2nd class. The other class has to be either Pole Dance, Serpent Power or Freestyle with Purity.
  • You also have to partake in strength building activities outside of the lesson, this can include going on your pole at home, joining Half Hour to Power (Discounted Rate), going to the gym, or some other activity which will help you gain strength.

For Spinny Pole, the requirements are the same as the Pole Tricks classes. It can only be used as a second class on membership along side a pole dance class. You would also have to partake in strength and conditioning outside of your lessons.

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday
6.25pm-7.25pm Intermediate Pole Dance Pole Tricks Spinny Pole Improver Pole Dance
7.30pm-8.30pm Intermediate Pole Dance Intermediate Pole Dance Pole Tricks Freestyle Pole Dance
8.35pm-9.35pm Beginner Pole Dance Serpent Power Improver Pole Dance

Please do get in touch with me, and let me know which are going to be the class times you prefer. If you are currently on Improver Pole on the current timetable, it may be the case you are ready to move to Intermediate Pole Dance from April.

I do hope you all continue your pole adventure with Purity, but I will also understand if you choose not to. Unfortunately it is impossible to please everyone. xx

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.
