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!

What can 6 months can do for a business?..

A LOT!! That is the answer! It has been 6 months since opening the new Purity Studio in Andover, Hampshire, and the support has been overwhelming! I left the Reading studio, to move to little Andover, not knowing what the call would be like, and whether I would ever have another studio or not. I have been surprised at just how big Purity has got, since I moved here!

Starting with only 2 pole classes a week, then to growing to 4, the call for pole has been so1st class high, that we now have 6 classes, as 5 have been consistently full. Not only do we do pole fitness, but we also hold Authentic pole classes now, which have been ever so popular. All of our pole classes are 1 student per pole, given students ample pole time, with no waiting around.

 

photo 2I have been introducing more and more people to the art that is Aerial Hoop, a first for Andover I believe. This has also stretched to teaching children as young as 7.

Two months ago I launched the new get fit in 5 weeks HiiT course – Half Hour to Power. In only 3 x 30 minute sessions per week, students can increase fat loss, and gain fitness rapidly, whilst not losing much time in their day. With the 6pm class getting full as no one wants to leave, I have introduced a later one at 6.40pm.

Purity has a reputation for small and friendly classes, with a focus on technique and individual needs.

As the past 6 months have been so successful, we are now having a brand new floor putPS Launch down, so this means no more carpet, and all poles will no longer be Xstages, they will be floor to ceiling Xpoles for all the lucky students.

We are looking forward to an exciting 2015, with shows, more classes, more workshops, and perhaps even a Twerkshop 😉

Thank you to everyone past and present, who have supported Purity and made it what it is today!

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 Club – Andover

1st pole Club

Last night was our first of many Pole Club‘s, it was fully booked, and next week is now fully booked as well!

In these first 2 weeks of the new Purity Studio being open, we have had beginner pole fitness classes, intermediate pole dancing lessons, and INSANITY. The classes have been buzzing in the heat.

Andover has some of the most supportive pole dancing students I have known, and their dedication to get together and come to pole club on a Friday, and bring cakes, is something for Andover to be proud of.

All are learning to pole dance for fun and fitness, whilst creating a vibrant atmosphere.

Special offers for all fitness classes are available, Pole Club is free to those on aerial courses or memberships.

All spaces are limited, as we believe in running small classes (1 per pole), to allow good safe practice of all moves.

 

Aerial Hoop starts on Tuesday. So our timetable is looking tasty.

Your first lesson is free, so what are you waiting for? 🙂

Pole Fitness report on BBC today

So there has been a fairly good bit of publicity for pole on the BBC today. I feel the BBC did good to bring to pole to the world without any smut. Although I couldn’t help by be concerned about the student who seemed to of broken lots of bones through pole, while yes it can be a dangerous activity at times, respect is needed for the pole, but you shouldn’t be in the habit of breaking bones!

The person who ran at the pole and jumped on was a little worrying, along with the dodgy spotting techniques.

Overall it was nice to see it not being called stripper pole on daytime TV. Yes it has origins but doesn’t mean we all strip in class. Was also great to see many ages taking part in a mixed gender class, too many pole schools discriminate against men, we at Purity don’t.
