For this years halloween routine workshop, one class decided on 2 songs, and mixed them for me. We kept it quiet from most of the other students, it was a fun surprise when we went from Cry Little Sister by Gerard McMann (Lost Boys) into Magic Dance by David Bowie (Labyrinth).
All the videos were done in the Purity Studio in Reading, I put candles out to make it seem spooky!
Here are the students videos, from those who wanted to be filmed:

We had a pole jam to celebrate 5 years of Purity, the new look studio with the 6th pole, and also the release of digi-pole!
Ruth Hill did a fab performance, demonstrating the moves she had put into her recent grading. Jade McPhee performed on both spinny pole and static to Cry me a River.
My performance was to Clubbed to Death from Matrix, it was a challenge routine, I wrote out all the moves I wanted to include and some of the girls put it together and called them out. I had to make it work as a routine, and I did not know what order the moves were getting shouted out.
Here is a video of my routine
We had some lovely cakes bought in by Tanny and Natalie:
Kate Johnstone and Bendy Kate have been on the BBC news this week, talking about their doubles show which got them first place at Miss Pole Dance UK 2011 and silver at the World Pole Dance Chapionships 2011.
This is a great interview, which shows pole for the artistic dance that it is.
