STUDENT SPOTLIGHT OCTOBER – KATY

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT OCTOBER – KATY

Katy has been attending lots of different classes at Tempest for over 7 months, she has a positive attitude and always helps out at the start and end of classes. Why did you decide to start pole/aerial? I wanted to do something that combined exercise with fun and that was a bit different. I saw a friend's pictures on Instagram and was desperate to give it a try. Did you do any other dancing/fitness before starting pole/aerial? I previously did ballroom, Latin and classical dancing. I also do Pilates and had done some TRX workshops. How long have you been taking part in classes at Tempest? I joined Tempest in March starting with Aerial Yoga and Strength and Conditioning classes.

What’s in My Dance Bag by Lizzie

What’s In My Dance Bag? Every dancer (or instructor) gets to a point in their dance career where they have too much dance related stuff to just fit into their handbag when they go to the studio, and their ‘dance bag’ is created. There’s been quite a few blogs of this style lately from pro pole dancers and ballet dancers, and I always think its fascinating to see what everyone takes to their respective classes, so I thought it’d be interesting for you to see what one of your instructors at Tempest takes with them! I’m also frequently asked where I get some of my ballet clothes so I’m including links to anything you might find useful. (more…)...
