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 http://www.puritypoledancing.com/locations/readingberkshire.html

(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.

Purity Party – Sunday 2nd October

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:

Pole Jam and New Grip Aid

Thank you to everyone who came along to the pole jam last Sunday, it was a great turn out. It was lovely to meet some new faces, I hope you all had fun, learnt new things and made some new pole buddies.

Jade done her first ever pole performance and despite the sweaty pole done really well. Her spins are very inspiring and she has a unique way of putting moves together, making her performance very interesting to watch.

I danced to Feeling Good by Muse, I know I really should pick something else to dance to but Muse are just so good to pole to. I have put my video from the day at the end of this blog.

I ordered a new product called Dry Hands last week, I think it it by far the best grip aid I have ever used! It drys out your hands instantly. You can order it from here: Trixters Pole Fitness

Feeling Good Routine

UK Pole Dance Day Pole Jam

Thank you to all who came to the jam on Saturday, it was great to meet up with you all, have a jam and do some challenges.

Big thanks to Kate Tolhurst who performed a pole routine for the first time ever, she did fantastically well even though being a little nervous to start with.

Purity Instructors – Suze, Emma and Beth did a 90 second challenge to see how many pole moves they could do without feet touching the floor. All managed to do it! as you will see here it was very close between them all!!

1st Suze – 22 Moves
2nd Emma – 21 Moves
3rd Beth – 20 Moves

Instructor Challenge

My challenge was to let the people at the jam select a song for me to dance to, I didn’t know what it was until it started. Despite the fact I was absolutely shattered I still enjoyed dancing to it. They picked Puretone – Addicted To Bass.

Here is a video of my routine:

Please note that with all Purity classes they are lessons rather than pole jams, which means you must follow the teachers instruction rather than swapping moves with each other. We believe this is the safest way to run classes, especially as all the teachers have been trained on how to teach moves safely and can work out if you are ready for certain moves. If you see someone doing a new move and would like to give it a go then by all means ask your teacher, I’m sure they will be happy to teach it to you, or give you advice on what moves will get you ready for it.

Pole Jam / Spin City Showcase

My weekend was packed full of pole events, first of all on Saturday we had the belated Christmas Pole jam for Students at the Purity Studio. This was cancelled before Christmas due to the snow. There were 3 of the Purity teachers there, myself, Beth and Suze, we all gave out tuition which meant most students got a lot out of the jam.

Suze set herself a challenge to try and do as many moves as she could in 90 seconds without touching the floor. but she wasn’t allowed to do the same move twice! (Well apart from climbing and Inverting) I’m sure she will upload her video to her new blog once it is up and running.

I did a trial run of my performance ready for Sunday, here is the video:

Practice Run

On Sunday Jason and I ventured to Bristol ready for the Spin City Spring Showcase event which was being held at the Panache night club. They had hired out the venue and placed 2 Xpoles on the brightly lit dance floor (one 50mm on Static and one 45mm on Spin mode). Kate Johnstone opened the show with a wicked trick infused routine, my god that girl is strong! After that one by one other performers both amateur and professional came on and did their performance. There was a mixture of Pole Dance and Burlesque. Emma Mitchell did her hilarious old lady burlesque/pole act, I definitely think this was the most memorable performance from the night.

I was the last pole act to go on, I used both Spinny and Static pole and danced to Hysteria by Muse. I felt confident with the routine especially having practiced it at the Jam the day before. There will be some photos to follow from the night as Jason was there as the official photographer, for now you can see my video:
