Sexy Pole Workshops

In July 2015, we celebrated Bringing Sexy Back with a Sexy Pole Workshop, so popular that the first one sold out within a few hours, so a second one was introduced, creating a whole weekend of slinky floor work. You can see a little selection of clips below.

Pole Dancing Classes, Reading – *Now 1 per pole!*

I have now changed all the Intermediate and Advance course classes to be one student per pole at the Purity Studio in Reading. Many of you know I prefer teaching this way, and now I have my own studio I thought I would take advantage of it more. The price is still £60 for a one month course. I do believe Purity is the only school in Reading and surrounding areas offering such a good deal!

Finding a good pole school

People still think that learning to pole dance is a lot of money, but I will help you understand why the price can be more than an aerobic type class…

-Pole classes are generally take more work before and after a class, as you need to set up and take down the poles, most venues charge for this extra time.

-Pole Dancing classes are normally much smaller than other exercise classes, for example in Aerobics you can have 30 people in a class, but for pole you shouldn’t really have more than 8 students per teacher, as it is very technical, and students safety is very important.

-There should not be many students on each pole, once you are warmed up it is important to keep warm, if there are 4 of you on a pole you will be standing around a lot of the time cooling off before its your next go…..very dangerous! What was the point in warming up in the first place!!

Many pole schools are finding ways to be able to keep costs down, but do ask some questions before hand to know that the classes are good and you will be safe, rather than being ‘cheap tack’ and also in some cases, ‘expensive tack’!

Here are some good questions to ask:

  • How many people are in the class?
  • How long is the class?
  • What will I learn from a course?
  • How many students are on each pole?
  • What qualifications does the teacher have?
  • Are the Instructors insured?
  • How long have they been teaching?
  • Do they regularly update their training?

These questions should be asked when ever you are exploring a new school, and if a school has nothing to hide they won’t mind answering all of them for you.

Just because a school charges a lot of money does not mean they are good, I know places that charge £140 for a 6 week course and have 2 poles and up to 14 students in a class!!! I also know other places that charge £5 and have 10 students to one pole.

Pole Dancing can be a dangerous activity so make sure you are getting taught by someone who is gonna look out for your safety!
