Purity works extremely hard to seek out only the best teachers we can find, and then we train them to be even better!
All of the teachers featured, have been selected as some of the best Pole Teachers in the UK. This is echoed by the ongoing sucess and expansion of our classes, and the great feedback we receive from all our students.
I started learning to pole in January 2003 and have been teaching pole dancing since January 2005. I love teaching pole so much that I wanted to go full time so I set up Purity in 2006 and a year later gave up office work.
Years ago when I ran club nights I used to do podium dancing in night clubs, but once I started pole I decided to give up podium and just do pole. I did this regularly a few times month for about 3 years to lots of different music including: rock, techno, trance, drum n bass, house and RnB. I have stopped performing in nightclubs as much and now do showcases and competitions, some of which have included Polecats, Pole Divas and being a finalist at Miss Pole Dance 2008.
Promotions I have pole and podium danced for include;
- Redtrip, Squelcher, Torture Garden, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Synthetic Culture, Tarantula, Antiworld, Xstatic, Logic.
Clubs I have danced at;
- Fridge, Telegraph, Electrowerkz, Mass, Scala, Club Supreme, Crash, SEOne, Plan B, Egg.
As well as dancing in nightclubs I have also had other opportunities including;
- Radio (BBC Radio Berkshire/OnFM Radio),
- TV (UK TV Style/BBC Three)
- Music Video (Nick Sentience)
- Calendars (MyPole 2005/Pole Love 2008)
- Showcases (Spin City, UKAPP, Miss Pole Princess, Equity, International Pole Federation)
- Speaking and performing at Venus Art Gallery, Henley
- Various after show parties, London
- Currently performing in Cyberdog, Camden each weekend during 2010
I aim to remove the stigma attached to pole dancing and educate people that it's not just about lap dancing and stripping, it is a beautiful dance and great form of exercise. My performances are kept tasteful and I keep all my classes to the same standard.
I hold an Exercise to Music Qualification, First Aid Certificate, and I also have Public Liability Insurance and a PPL licence.
I run the Purity Studio in Reading.
I am a Level 2 Pole Dance Community Instructor, and an Authorised Grading Assessor.
