Hi everyone my name is Kate aka Mistress Sapphire Von Tazieff and I am your newly qualified instructor for Peterborough and Foxton.
I had been looking for an exercise class that was a bit different after a shoulder injury prevented me from carrying on with learning to pole dance. I didn’t want to do the “norm”, luckily some ladies at work also felt the same and we found a local Burlesque Chair Dance class. I had danced a little at school, but wasn’t “built” like the other girls so I was always left out of all the performances, but seeing all the different shapes and sizes of the ladies at that first class really helped.
I took my first class at the end of January with Minxy Von Rox in Stamford, by the end of the class I was hooked. For once I wasn’t judged on my size or my dance ability and I never felt stupid. I knew by the end of the class I was coming back without a doubt! I chose my burlesque name within 2 weeks and I had my uniform ordered shortly after that -and I have never looked back! I performed at my first show within months of starting and certainly was bitten by the bug I loved every second of being on that stage!
I had always had a poor self-body image and I totally lacked confidence in myself , the only time I had any confidence in front of a camera or as centre of attention was in the ring with one of my show dogs (my other passion my 2 Afghan Hounds). Burlesque Chair Dance has unleashed a “me” I never knew existed, I felt myself grow and my confidence soar. I feel like the world is now my oyster!
My aim is to empower and bring out a new confidence in the ladies in my classes, also I want them to Get Fit, Lose Weight , Build Confidence, and Have lots of FUN doing so!
The classes are for all sizes, all abilities, all shapes the only things holding you back is you! So grab the chair by the legs and join me in shimmying your way to a new you! I assure you, you wont regret taking a chance.
This week I took my very first class, OMG we had the most fun! A class full of happy smiling ladies that all let happy! Made my job so easy, can’t wait for my next class.
