Purity Showcase

This month Jolene and I are going to be focusing on the Purity Showcase, which takes place on the 31st October. We decided to create another event for our students as the Purity Birthday Party was so much fun.

We’re really excited as the showcase is going to feature lots of amazing pole performers, all of which will have very different styles! We’ll be selling tickets very soon so an update will be coming your way.

And congratulations to Jolene and Jason who has their beautiful wedding ceremony last Sunday. To Mr and Mrs Parlour I hope you are having a fantastic and well deserved honeymoon :)


Poledivas / Suzie Q Workshop

Last weekend was another jam packed weekend full of pole, well allmost all pole.

On Friday I went to South Street in reading to watch my friend Danielle Corbishly in a performance called ’1000 Revolutions Per Moment’. we had to follow the actors and performers around Reading, the key was to follow the music, where ever we heard music that was where we went to. It was very bizzare and made us all feel like kids again! It felt a bit like we were doing a massive treasure hunt around the town!

Saturday night was Poledivas in Bristol, much busier than the London heat. Everyone did fanastic routines, a few stood out for me, and Advance Amateur called Karry Summers, she did an excellent high energy routine to one of my favourite songs by System of a Down, I wasn’t surprised when she won the heat.

Sam Remmer from Art of Dance, Plymouth was on first for the professionals, her tricks amaze me everytime! I do not under stand how her tricks are solid as a rock, there is no movement or shaking.

Kate Johnstone from Spin City, Bristol did a fab routine to Smells Like Teen Spirit, you would never of guessed she had never done a big performance before, she had so much confidence and her routine was very fun.

On Sunday I was lucky enough to get a last minute spot on the Suzie Q Workshop in Bracknell. I was very surprised to see most of the moves didn’t require a stupid amount of flexibilty. She very much focused on strength, and reminded me a lot of Pantera. Suzie is a total nut on the spinny pole, she loves anything that makes her head spin and feel giddy. She is truely an inspiration on spinny pole!

Pole Divas 2009

I have been asked by Pole Divas to be a judge for their National Pole Dancing Competition. Last Sunday I judged the London Heat. There were only entries in 2 out of the 3 catagories, Professional and Amateur Advance. I though great that will be easy as there aren’t many…WRONG…the standard was very close in the Amateurs, so close there was even a tie!
The standard of the Professionals was very high, and all competitors very different, which is great to watch, but not so easy to judge.

Tonight I am off to the Bristol heat, can’t wait! I have heard that there will be yet more wicked dancers there!

Good Luck everyone!
