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 created it, in the hope that it could be somewhere that likeminded people could interact, share their photos and stories with everyone else. (more…)...

World Pole Sports Championships 2015 By Anita

AKA “that time our jaws dropped so low we couldn’t see them” On July the 22, myself and my lovely partner (who is also a huge pole enthusiast) travelled down in our tiny Citroen C2 from Durham all the way down to London. This 7 hour journey, although filled with traffic, bad weather, and idiot drivers, was worth it as we were on our way to see World Pole Sports Championships (WPSC 2015) where the best pole athletes from all over the world gathered to show off their mad skills. And OH MY POLE, their skills are mad! (more…)...
