We recently had the pleasure of hosting a workshop at our studio with O'so Krispie. O'so Krispie appeared on the reality show "R U the girl". The show was a contest to find a new member for the RnB Group TLC. O'so Krispie was the winner and appeared on TLC's album Now and Forever. Along with being an active singer she also own's O'so Krispie Studios where she teaches Dance and choreography.
I wasn't sure what to expect upon meeting her although her texts before our meeting gave me some idea. She texted me as though we were friends and already knew each other. Asking what I was wearing out that night and complaining about the pain of high heel shoes. Which was ironic considering she teaches her nationally known workshop O'so stiletto which teaches average woman a number of sexy walks and dance movies wearing those painful shoes!
We met in the parking lot of Barcelona, one of the only more upscale night clubs in Fayetteville. I was greeted with a hug and her sweet nature continued through out the entire night. She has a naturally appealing sweet toned voice that could only add to her guiienelly sweet charector. Although obviously an outgoing girl she was not snobbish or stuck up by her fame, did not expect to be catered to, and seemed genuinally interested in our answers to her questions as she got to know us. I never one felt out of place or less than her and continued to feel as though we were already friends.
Although the workshop was a bust due to unforeseen events that left us passing out flyers last minute....I can't wait until the next event! Hopefully she will grace us with her presence again and this time many more of you will be intoxicated by her sweet nature. Until then....check out O'so Krispie on youtube!
Just a reminder there are no classes on Monday~~
(they still show on the calendar do to a 'repeat session' in the setup)
Memorial Day we honor those that have sacrificed and continue to sacrifice, for us and our families.
Please have a safe and fun weekend.

When you hear the words ‘pole dancing’, you probably think of a smoke-filled nightclub with provocatively gyrating strippers. But there’s more to pole dancing than exotic adult entertainment. In fact, in the last few years, pole dancing has become a hot fitness trend for women regardless of weight, age and fitness levels. Intrigued? Read on for more about the history and fitness benefits of pole dancing.
History of pole dancing
Historians argue that pole dance originated in the 12th century with the Maypole dance, a pagan fertility celebration. More recent beginnings of pole dancing can be traced all the way back to the 1920s when travelling Chinese troupes performed in circus acts using the tent’s pole as part of their dance routines.
In the 1950s, many bars began to feature pole dance in a bid to attract more customers and it was only in the 1980s that pole dancing began to be used in Canada as an entertainment feature in exotic strip clubs. Today, over 200,000 pole dancers perform in pole dance studios and clubs in over 70 countries around the world. Pole dancing has become so popular that professional pole dance competitions are held in many countries to recognise the hard work and skill of the dancers.
Health and fitness benefits of pole dancing
Though pole dancing continues to be wildly popular as exotic entertainment, it also has a brand new avatar today. It is now a legitimate, fun and effective exercise option for women due to the various fitness benefits it affords. Pole dancing requires intense training and endurance. Dancers need to be flexible, agile and very strong to gracefully execute the athletic moves of pole dancing. Pole dance instructors contend that this exercise form sculpts and strengthens the upper and lower body, resulting in overall weight loss and a toned figure.
Here are some of the other benefits of fitness pole dancing:
Physical benefits aside, fitness pole dancing is an enjoyable way to build your confidence. It makes your body movements graceful, makes you more attuned to rhythm and music and gives you a general sense of euphoria. Pole dance is just as effective as Pilates and yoga as far as exercise benefits are concerned. But it is important that you learn its manoeuvres from an experienced instructor and follow all safety instructions.
So, are you ready to embrace this latest fitness craze!
