“Pole dancing was definitely great fun but also tremendously demanding physically. As it turns out, I enjoyed the classes so much that I just kept training.”

Sensuality! the word so many women dread and probably hope they never have to talk about. Surprisingly, it is only a few who take pole dancing and burlesque classes, and honestly admit they are looking to get more in touch with their sensuality. All women have sensuality. Some may be more in tune with it than others. Which beckons the question, why? What was it that made women so insecure about their own beautiful, sexual energy?

After various conversations with several women, Kaysha Franklin and the ‘Unapologetically Women’ (UW) team saw the need for a space that would allow women to explore themselves, release their inhibitions and connect with their inner sexy, sassy and sensual side.

Franklin thought that this went hand in hand with the dance. . She explains that dance has the ability to push you beyond yourself and can almost move you to a different place where it’s just you, your body and movement.

With this, they created a ‘Super Sensual Six Series Workshop’ that will release your inner vision and offer a space of self-exploration, self- expansion and self-love.

The workshop will see the likes of Christina Gonzales, a dance fitness instructor and choreographer and Sacha Renee, a pole instructor and dancer, who will help women to feel their sensuality through the beats of music and the movement of their bodies.

Gonzales shares that all women have the seeds of sensuality planted within them but that sometimes inspiration is needed for uninhibited expression.
