November Madness!

This past month has flown by so fast, with so many things taking place. End of October saw the start of the Andover classes, by a charity night in aid of the Jamie G Sporting Trust, in total for the event and leading up to it we made £50, so thank you to all that took part and donated too. Classes are now running regularly in Andover at Progression Fitness.

Camberley classes has got off to a rocking start, with many students from Reading attending, along with some of the old school Camberley students coming back.

We had the last ever show at the Studio on 10th November, lots of slinky performances, including a free style challenge from me. My wonderful boyfriend brought cupcakes for my Birthday treat, and a balloon in the shape of a pole dancer!

On Saturday I am hosting the last workshop at the studio, the theme will be Stripper Style, this got booked up within 24 hours, so I’m sure it will be a hit.

Next week will be the last week at the Purity Studio, a place which has been my second home for over 5 years, we will celebrate by having party classes 🙂

Defy Gravity hosts Stripper Style on Tour

Our new show is officially on tour, with the second show being hosted by Jamie Taylor at Defy Gravity in Pembrokeshire in October 2013! It was a long drive, but I was fortunate enough to make it into a little holiday for a few days.

I danced along side the other Strpperettes – Jamie Taylor, Tess Taylor, Robyn Rooke and Lisa Williams.

We each did 2 hot n sexy dances, with the focus being on pole flow, dance and floor work. Tricks were thrown in for good measure, but we were not being trick junkies on the night. We showcased the sensual side of pole, which is something sadly is getting lost through the pole fitness world.

At the end of the night we took part in a Pole-a-polooza! This was where the fast tricks came out, as we gave it our all at the end.

The video below is of my first routine, I will be using my special collar and lead performance at the next show in London in February.


Here is a little show reel I put together from the night

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.
