Curvies Pole Dancing Lessons at Pole Krazee, Trowbridge, UK.
When some people think of pole dancing they conjure up a specific body image but PDC Approved 3 star pole dancing instructor Gina Mellor wanted to offer classes to a wider audience. Gina started her 'curvies classes' for women of size 16+.
We spoke to Gina to find out what made her set up the classes and what her members gain from the curvy class.
"In every single group lesson held at Pole Krazee there'll be at least one curvy, (for a curvy lesson you have to be size 16+) I don't give the options to help create a body issue problem I give it because I believe it's more a mental factor, after all pole is also about building confidence up as well as strength and technique. If your/our mind is weak it can take its toll on our bodies. As a pole school owner or instructor that advertises for lessons open to anyone you'll know that you'll never be sure of who will walk through those doors based on age, size, race, height so many factors. The only thing you do know is you for that one hour all have one thing in common, pole.
"Having that class as an option for those who feel self conscious with their figure is just brilliant, at least until they realise that up the pole it doesn't matter"
