The Spin City Pole Fitness 1st Birthday Bash.

Spin City pole dancing picture

Spin City Pole Fitness were very proud to celebrate our first birthday! To commemorate this fantastic occasion, we held our 1st Birthday Bash at The Redgrave Theatre in Bristol on Saturday the 26th of September.

48 students and instructors; many of whom had never previously performed, took to the stage and stunned the 400 strong crowd with individually choreographed pole dancing routines comprising of a breathtaking array of tricks and spins. The individual and paired routines were complimented by the Spin City Dance Troupe, who performed a tribute to Michael Jackson and a Street Dance piece, choreographed by Spin City Choreographer, George Johnson.

The evening’s performances were energetic and dazzling, introducing many of those into the audience to the sport of Pole Fitness. It was a really great night and everyone performed exceptionally well! All the girls were extremely nervous, it takes a lot of courage to get up there and perform – especially in a real theatre! I am so proud of what they have all achieved this year!

Spin City pole dancing pictureSpin City pole dancing picture

We set up Spin City in 2008 with the aim of encouraging as many women back into exercise as possible and to expand pole fitness as a sport. We hope that through events such as the 1st Birthday Bash we can shed some of the taboos of pole dancing and show its true artistic and gymnastic nature. Gyms can often prove an intimidating environment to women, as can sports clubs - especially if you have been out of exercise for a while. We wanted to create an exercise class that provided great fitness benefits in a social, fun and friendly environment. A class that was open to all ages, sizes, abilities and fitness levels. Pole fitness was the perfect answer!

Spin City Pole Fitness are going from strength to strength in Bristol and have just moved into a new premises ‘The Workshop’ in Clifton. With two bespoke pole dancing studios, 16 x-poles, and a committed team of Instructors and Dancers, Spin City hope to be able to take on a whole new cohort of students this year with the next showcase ‘The Spin City Graduation Show’ scheduled for March 2010.

Our latest featured new Pole Dance Community Approved Pole Dance School - Pagan's Pole.

Pagan’s Pole was established in 2008 and offers pole dance instruction across Anglesey, Bangor and the surrounding North Wales area. Tracy Huckfield is the principal instructor and the school’s name originates from her stage/dancing name ‘Pagan’.

Pagans Pole logo pole dancing picture

When Pagan’s Pole first introduced itself to the local community much opposition was met due to a very stereotypical image of pole dancing and its sexual connotations.  As a qualified Aerobics and Pump FX instructor Tracy has spent much time and effort encouraging the local community to see pole dancing in a whole new light, as the amazing form of exercise it truly is.  The local newspapers were very supportive of this new exercise regime to hit the community and Pagan’s Pole was featured in a very positive light, with one reporter stating it had been the best physical work-out she had experienced in a long time.  Tracy and her student’s were also privileged to appear on S4C’s Newyddion, the local welsh news, where they encouraged the local community to try this new form of exercise and also discussed the petition to get pole dancing recognised as a sport in the Olympic Games.

Pagan’s Pole is now established in the community and encourages ladies and gents of all shapes, age ranges and sizes to give pole dancing a go, whether it is because they want to lose weight, tone up, build upper body strength, or just to have a whole lot of fun!!

As a very small school Pagan’s Pole specialises in small groups and private tuition. Each lesson is tailored 100% to the ability of that particular student as no 2 persons are the same and fitness and strength ability can vary massively from student to student.  Special offers are available at different times throughout the year, so prices are never set in stone.  Each student also receives a Pagan’s Pole loyalty card and is rewarded regularly for the hard work they put into each lesson?

Picture above of Pagan performing the Ayesha, an elbow hold handstand variation on a 50mm static X-pole.

One of the important aims of Pagan’s Pole is ensure that all students are having fun!! Therefore Pole Jams are a regular occurrence, where students of all levels are encouraged to meet and have a good pole bashing time!  Event trips are also organised where possible so students get to see live performances and are encouraged to take part.  The most recent of which was a trip to the United Kingdom Amateur Pole Perfromer (U.K.A.P.P) heats where a fab time was had by all the students who attended.  Tracy is currently trying to make similar arrangements for her students to attend Pole Divas in November?  Along with trips with her students Tracy also tries to get to as many competitions and shows as she possibly can, ensuring that her pole dancing knowledge remains current and up to date, and her repertoire of pole moves and transitions is constantly growing!  In addition to this Tracy will also be representing Wales in this years British Isle Pole Dancing championships…eek so nervous!!

If you would like any further info on Pagan’s Pole please check out our website or look us up on Facebook by searching for Pagan's Pole.  We’re all a sociable bunch and would love to hear from you?

Pole Dance Community approved dance school Candy & Chrome.

Candy & Chrome pole dance studios offer pole dancing lessons in Chester, Frodsham and Queensferry, with more venues across North Wales (Covering Flintshire and Denbighshire) and Cheshire to come. We believe that pole dance is for everybody, not just the fit, the brave, the glamour models.  So we have devised classes that will suit everybody. We specialise in teaching small groups, we make sure you get plenty of pole time as well as lots of personal pole tuition from your instructor.

At Candy & Chrome we only teach pole dance, we are not yoga instructors gone wild, we don’t offer every new fitness fad under the sun, we just teach pole dance fitness exclusively, making us knowledgeable experts in our chosen field and professionals of what we do – True explorers of ‘The Art of Pole’.  We have only one thing missing……..  YOU! So strap on the big heels and come for a spin with us!

Our services include:

Pole Parties - We cater for parties at any of our studios, or your own venue such as the local pub! or the conference room at work, or even in your own home! These parties are GREAT for Hen do’s, Birthday celebrations, Corporate day experiences or any other excuse you can find to have a good old swing on the pole!  

Pole Dance Taster Sessions - We call this a ‘Teaser Class’.  It’s just a one-off lesson and would suit anyone who is just curious and not quite ready to commit to a full course.  It will give you a good idea about what is involved and what pole dancing is all about! 

Pole Dance Courses - We have 3 levels of courses.  The Bronze level would suit beginners, looking to tone up with an exercise regime that’s actually FUN and less tedious.  It’s 6 weeks long and runs as one lesson a week, one hour at a time. The Silver Level Course is more suitable for Intermediate level students as more strength and pole confidence is required. A good portion of these lessons will be working on upside down tricks! and how to get into them. Finally, the Gold level is the most hardcore!  This course is for the more advanced students who are more serious about studying ‘The Art of Pole’.  The moves become increasingly difficult and require a more seasoned pole dancer to achieve them.  This course pushes your flexibility levels, strength, balance, co-ordination, cardio-fitness and pole ability to help you become the kind of pole dancer you want to be.

Candy chrome pole dancing picture logos

Personal Pole Tuition in the Pole Suite - Candy & Chrome are able to offer One2One, Two2One, or even Three2One personal tuition.  If you don’t feel brave enough to learn in a full group, you can learn at our new, purposely customised pole suite (situated just outside of Chester, on the North Wales border) and learn in private, or with up to 2 mates. We are able to offer this class during the day, so it would suit anyone who works shift patterns or has other commitments in the evenings or weekends.  

Gift Vouchers - Pole dance lesson gift vouchers make a really unique, one-off gift for a special lady! Candy & Chrome now offer gift vouchers for a course of lessons, a one-off Teaser class, or as a special pampering treat with a little extra – get her the ‘Spa & Spin’ voucher! 

Drop-In’s - These classes are just for existing students only, as practice time so you may build on what you have learned.  Like we said, pole dancing is for EVERYBODY…but once you have learned the basic technique on a course, then it’s time to really have some fun with it and make it your own! Put your own twist on things by adding a bit of spice, your own personal flair and ‘Freestyle’ away!

    Arianna Candidno Pole Dance GradingHow many of you work hard to learn new pole dancing moves but then fail to get the recognition you deserve? Do friends and family respect your chosen dance/fitness genre or do they chuckle and make snide comments? How many people know about your pole dancing instructor and how much they have taught you?

    To be taken seriously in any sport you want recognition for your hard work and the PDC Pole Dance Gradings are the perfect way to chart your pole dancing progression, create new goals and promote pole dancing to your friends and family.

    Gradings are also perfect for those of you who can't find a pole dance school near you and who learn in the comfort of your own home spending hours watching Youtube and checking out the pole dancing pictures of those you admire.  You can shine just the same.

    Buy your AAP Membership.

    Your £20 annual AAP membership allows you to partake in gradings and gives you one free on-line grading. AAP members also receive special members discounts.  Succesfullly graded dancers may order an official certificate of achievement and receive stars in their web profile

    Plan your grading. Decide which level of the PDC Syllabus is the most appropriate for you. Don't rush to achieve higher gradings, work through the lower levels and learn safely at your own pace. If you train with a PDC Approved instructor then they can help you with this process.  If you train at home on your own then take a look at the grading sheets  used by PDC grading assessors to mark the gradings. Pick your 10 chosen moves from your preferred level.
