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

More Pole! More Half Hour to Power!

Due to the popularity of Pole and Half Hour to Power (HHTP) I have introduced a later HHTP at 6.40pm on weekdays, I have had a lot of people interested since the launch, but unable to make the earlier time. As the earlier time is now fully booked, the later time has been released.

HHTP is great for those wanting to lose weight, and get fit, but also those who want to increase their level of fitness and metabolism and push harder, using interval training makes this all achievable on both the easy and hard variations of the moves.

The most popular Purity class of all is still Pole, we do all levels from Beginners, through to Advance, with a range of pole fitness, pole dancing and the new Purity class, Authentic Pole. Friday night is now an extra night for pole since becoming fully booked. All our Pole classes are always 1 student per pole for the hour, to give each student sufficient pole time, without the hassle of sharing, and waiting for ago.

It is mainly woman who come to pole dance lessons, but men are welcome too, as we do not believe in discrimination at Purity. Everyone who comes to learn pole, works hard and to their own pace and ability, there is something at pole for everyone who wants to get fit, lose weight, have fun and meet new people.

All of these classes are based at the Purity Studio in Andover, Hampshire UK. You can see our new timetable here.

Andover Carnival 2014

You have have seen that Purity Studio had an Aerial Hoop set up at The Andover Carnival 2014. It was a long day, as we were there from 8.30am until about 8pm, introducing many men, woman and children to the circus art of Aerial Hoop, also known as Lyra.

So many had never heard of it, or seen it, but I was amazed to see so many give it a go. We had a total of 12 adults and 20 children try it. The youngest children were 6, and the oldest was a 79 year old man! I hope I can still use an Aerial Hoop when I am his age!

The sun was shining all day long, making the Andover Carnival very popular.

More people now know there is a new dedicated dance and fitness studio in Andover, running pole dancing, aerial hoop, pole fitness, Personal Training and INSANITY classes right on their door step. Small classes, so there is plenty of instructor time, and students can progress fast.

I will be starting children’s Aerial Hoop classes from September 2014, please contact Jolene through the site, or on 07961 054 863 to register your interest, for these new lessons.

Or let me know if you are interested in parent/child Aerial Hoop classes as well, as a lot of the mum’s couldn’t resist a go for themselves 😉

Pole Dancing for 10 Years!!

This month has been my 10 year anniversary for starting to pole dance. I had no idea when I first took a pole dancing course in London, that I would become so addicted. Over the past 10 years I have danced at many locations, from Art Galleries, to coming out of a box at Torture Garden on New Years Eve! I have taught 1000’s of woman to pole and about 40 men, ranging from hen parties to courses to private lessons.

As much as I have loved dancing and working out on the pole, it has been more than that. Pole has always been there for me, through good times and bad. It’s funny to say that it is more than just pole, but it is. It has even given me a job, a wonderful job, teaching so many students. Students who brighten up my week, give me inspiration and make me laugh. It has made me a performer, and shown me that I can do amazing things with my body, that years ago I never thought possible.

It has even got me on TV, on the Radio, in Newspapers and in magazines!

I have met some incredible people through pole, been on fantastic adventures, and loved it. Pole has come so far, from the one course being offered in London, and now vast amounts of towns now holding pole lessons. From the early days of MyPole.co.uk, before Google videos, it was a small community, a large potion being strippers, and now today, the community is huge, so many competitions, and the massive amount of people pole dancing are now doing so more for fun and fitness, than for stripping. It has grown to be more than ‘just a fad’.

I am hoping there will be another 10 years of pole for me, as it has been a blessing on my life.
