Pole Dancing Lesson Scholarships

 
Krissykiki

 


 



It brings me great pleasure to announce that in Partnership with the lovely people at StudioVeena I am able to offer 2 separate scholarships for 1 year of pole dancing lessons through [www.studioveena.com]



Wait, what?

 

You heard me! I am offering you the chance to apply to get one of the 2 free 1 year subscriptions to the lessons on [kikispoleblog@yahoo.ca!]

 

But, why?

 

I love pole dancing. It has brought me so much happiness and I want to be able to share that joy with as many people as possible. This is about giving back to the Pole Community that I love.

As many of us know, pole dancing can be an expensive hobby, and I wanted to find a way to provide the opportunity for someone to take lessons who may not ordinarily be able to financially. I chose to make the scholarship specific to StudioVeena as I am aiming this scholarship at beginner, intermediate, and brand new dancers. In my own opinion the lessons at StudioVeena are great for beginners and those still learning the way of the pole.

That being said, if you are an advanced dancer who still feels they would benefit from this scholarship, feel free to apply. :) This is open to everyone.

If you have never checked out the lessons before then please head on over and try out the 2 free lessons they have available and check out Veena's teaching style.

 

 

How did this happen?

 

Well, I was sitting around thinking about how much pole dancing as a hobby can cost and how I often hear about those who want to learn but can't afford to attend a studio or pay for lessons and end up frustrated. I decided I wanted to offer a scholarship to someone to help make a difference. I approached StudioVeena about how I could do this and they generously matched my donation of a years subscription to Veena's lessons. Thanks to them I can now offer 2 scholarships!


*A big thank you to the wonderful folks at StudioVeena for their donation!*


I would also like to thank Webmaster over at StudioVeena for all of his help in making this a possibility.

 

 

When can I apply?


I will be accepting applications from September 1st, 2012 through to October 1st, 2012 at midnight (PST). I will not be accepting any late applications. The winners will be announced October 15th, 2012 on www.krissykiki.blogspot.ca 


How can I apply?

 

For full details on the application process, details, selection process and rules please visit [krissykiki.blogspot.ca]

 

Please Share this opportunity with the pole dancers you know as I am hoping to make this available to as many polers as possible! :)

 

Sincerely,

Krissykiki

I've been meaning to get the lessons here on SV for so long, but the money has never been there. I have stopped taking lessons at the studio, partly because I need to work some things out before I'm ready and partly because it's expensive. I could only take the drop in classes because of a special 1/2 price promotion. Now that it's over, I probably won't be able to go anymore.

I will definitely be applying for this scholarship. You are truly an amazing person, Krissykiki. I'm always amazed by your strength and commitment. Thank you (and SV) for offering this opportunity and good luck (and congratulations) to the girls who apply for and eventually receive this scholarship.

I was wondering about this just the other day. I wondered if Studioveena had scholarships and how a person could donate to that.  How can we donate?

This is a great idea! Very admiral of you and SV to be able to give to someone else and take it a step further to do it! I would love to be able to take lessons online. But I really can't afford it. However, I am fortunate enough to have 4 studios in my area that consistently offer Groupon/ Living Social deals.  So I am able to take classes a few times a month. I'm sure the girls that don't have that luxury will really appreciate your thoughtfulness and generosity. GOOD LUCK to all the applicants!

Ozark- I was wondering the same thing.... I would be interested in donating!!! Maybe Veena or Krissy can set up a paypal link to directly donate to another membership giveaway??

I think it would be an awesome idea to look into but it will depend a lot on the amount of applicants and interest we get from this round of scolarships. I would be open to doing this again if it is successful. :)

What about a pole give away? I know this is a lot, but if Veeners are willing to donate over the course of a few months maybe we can do a pole give away for someone who deserves it... Just a though :)

@Krissykiki, I can make the one-page requirement work but would it be okay for me to make it two pages? I have so much to say about my pole journey, lol!

Congratulations to the winners! Even though I entered, I put my vote in toward CapFeb and not myself. She truly deserved it more than me and I am sure that Mitzit did too.

Unfortunately, my pole has come down. I was, quite literally, out of options. Maybe I'll pick it up again in the future.

Congrats to the winners! I hope you both progress like crazy! :)..I am proud of all of us that took the time and opened up our hearts. I know it's not something I do often, and it's not easy. Something I would like to share from this..From entering this contest it helped me to take the plunge and enter for my first competition! Today was due day for finding out on both and while I didn't win the lessons I did get accpted into the comp!!  Here's to all of our POLE PROGRESSS! :)

I just recently signed up for the your lessons and love them. I already own several DVD sets such as Felix & Jamilla. Those are wonderful as well, but I must state that I love your longer explanations and demonstrations plus the written info that appears.
