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 🙂

Studio Space for Hire

I have some days spare at the Purity Studio in Reading, Berkshire, which I am looking to hire out for 2 consecutive days a week, this would suit someone wanting a space to hold regular dance or fitness classes, I currently use it for pole and aerial hoop, but the poles and hoops would be away to create more space.

This is a great space for a photography studio, I have used it as one lots of times, there are brackets on the wall to hang paper rolls. It is a long room, so you can get good shots and not be too close.

The space is well lit, just over 500sqft, situated in West Reading, just off the Oxford Road.

The price would be £75 per week for the 2 days. Please either get in touch with Jolene through the website, or call 07961 054 863.

It’s great for increasing upper body strength and abs!

Learn how to get up into the Hoop, poses, linking, routines and conditioning.

Here is a short video, which is a mix of beginners and a few bits of Intermediates.

Aerial Hoop Intermediate Instructor Training

Last Saturday I had a wonderful 8 hours of intense and mostly practical Intermediate instructor training for Aerial Hoop. My hands are well conditioned now for much more Hoop. We learnt lots of new moves, top bar work, rolls, and combos. Always on these course I meet lovely people, and learn so much from Kate Edwards from Spin City.

I have my exam work to do, probably about Spring time, and then I will be one of the first Intermediate Aerial Hoop Instructors in the UK.

Looking forward to teaching beginners Hoop next week, first classes are on Monday in Reading, Berkshire!

Free Pole Dancing Lesson / Pay as you go pole dancing / Aerial Hoop classes

I have quite a few changes and special offers to Purity Pole Dancing in Reading for February.

Pay as you Pole
I am introducing 2 pay as you go classes, called Pay as you Pole. These can be booked on the day of the class up until 5pm, a discount is offered when booking 3 classes in one go. These are very different than the courses, as there is a maximum of 2 per pole, beginners and experienced polers are welcome. This means the classes are much more trick based, so routines and spinny pole will not be taught. These classes are particularly good for those not able to commit to a regular course. Current Purity students on courses get Pay as you Pole classes for half price.

Pay as you Pole will be on Tuesdays at 8.05pm and Thursdays at 8.35pm, from 19th February 2013, £10 per class, £25 for booking 3 classes, £5 for existing Purity Course payers, click here.

Aerial Hoop
A new discipline to come to Purity Pole, is Aerial Hoop, also known as Lyra. I have found there to be a fair few similarities to pole, which has been making it incredible fun to learn. The Hoop is steel, and a range of tricks and poses are taught in and on the Hoop, along with some routines. I am introducing beginners Hoop with a maximum of 3 students per Hoop.

Aerial Hoop will be on Mondays at 7pm and 8.05pm from the 18th February 2013, the 4 week course is £40, click here.

Free Introductory Class
For the month of February 2013, you can join Purity and have your first pole class for free. This offer is for your very first class either in the Beginners pole class, Intermediate pole class, or in a Pay as you Pole class. Please note you must contact Purity to book, and claim your FREE pole dancing lesson.

All pole dancing classes and aerial hoop lessons are taught in the Purity Studio in Reading, Berkshire.

Belated FREE Christmas Pole Jam

Now is the time for our belated Christmas Pole Jam, as the one in December was cancelled. (Don’t worry, the decorations are down)

This is mainly for old and current Purity students, please let me know if you would like to do a little routine, perhaps one of the old routine workshops with a friend.

I know some of you make fantastic cakes, so my cake ladies please do feel free to make some yummy cakes.

There are 12 spaces, to allow for plenty of pole time. Please let me know if you would like to come.

This event is open to all those who have some pole experience from beginners to advance. I will be on hand to give you some help if need be. (Please keep in mind if anyone is doing anything particularly dangerous you’ll be asked to stop)

The studio will have 6 poles, mirrors, mats and a big crash mat for those scary moves.

Parking is available on the street for 2 hours between 8am and 8pm, if you plan to stay longer then please use the parking at Tesco or at the Park.

Details of longer parking and directions are available on

(Please use the directions from the website, sat navs and online route finders will take you bizarre ways!)

Please do not bring fizzy drinks. outdoor shoes are not allowed on the mats in the studio.

Either contact Jolene through Facebook or by phone on 07961 054 863 to secure your space.

Aerial Hoop coming to Purity!!

I have been a busy bee this year, I have been training in Hoop, and have my exam in 2 weeks. Yesterday I picked up an A frame from Xpole, along with a Hoop, so this means I have one ready to use!!

I am looking at teaching Aerial Hoop at the Purity Studio in Reading, from early next year, I may start some lessons sooner if all goes well with the A frame.

The lessons will be priced different than pole, as it won’t be one to a Hoop, like our Pole classes are one to a pole. This is because it can be much more demanding, and the gap between having your next go is essential, to be able to last for a full class!

There is a chance I may start small group private lessons before Christmas 2012. So by all means do get in touch if you want to be notified.

Videos from our Sexy Routine Workshop

Last Sunday the Purity Girls polished their heels, took their hair bands out, and enjoyed doing a Routine Workshop to Buttons by Pussy Cat Dolls.

It was lovely to see the effort gone into outfits, it definately had a different feel to it, but as one of the students, Ruth, pointed out, everyone was just there to have fun, and not to compete with one another. It was nice we still managed to keep the lovely atmosphere, which is present in every Purity class.

Well done ladies 🙂
