Well, this is definitely how I would describe School of Strut. I attended the 'strutology' event launched by founder, and curvaceous goddess, Zoe Mcnulty, a body activist whose motto is that although we all want to be fitter, healthier, sexier and more confident. It doesn’t have to involve body shaming, hours in the gym or fad diets.
Unsure what to expect I head into the dance hall for the Strutology event and am immediately greeted by a swarm of happy, healthy and extremely confident ladies singing their hearts out and dancing their socks off to a loud, bubbly 'oh-so' sassy gentleman leading a parade of moves to extremely loud pop music. I was in heaven!
Two songs in and I'm waving my arms in the air and flicking my hair like I just don't care - and that was only the warm up! Zoe is introduced as the 'Headmistress' of the School and rightly so. As she takes her well deserved place centre stage and stirs up the crowd, the women cheer and wolf whistle in anticipation and I find myself eager to see what is going to happen next.
First we start with a 'SexyStreet' class in which Zoe leads her prepared mix of flirty, cheeky and sassy choreography with looks of flirtation and confidence that has me developing a slight girl crush! The whole class is delivered to popular chart songs remixed into one another without knowing which could be coming next. with loud music this class reminded me of my street dance teenage years and made me instantly want to rejoin.
