So I’m bringing Strutology to Nottingham next weekend (Sunday 22nd November 10am-12pm) (book here) and I’m honoured to be closing out the 3 week-long pop up studio which Rachel has been organising and orchestrating. It sounds like it has been going down a storm and I can’t wait to be the cherry on the top.
What is Strutology?
Definition: The Science of the Strut.
Description: The Strut is a force; a powerful tool by which we can harness immeasurable fortitude… and feel like Dave from the Money Supermarket advert! Marilyn Monroe said “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world” but Zoe said teach her to strut and she’ll conquer the Universe! So grab your heels for this empowering dance class as we ask the burning question: “Don’tcha wish your girlfriend was hot like me!?”
We’ll be dancing in heels - something we all do (or have done) at some point, down the disco, at weddings… we love the way heels make us look taller, walk sexier and boost our confidence… UNLESS we can’t handle the height of the heel - note to all ladies from Christian Louboutin: “If you can’t walk in them, don’t wear them!” So true!
So yes, I will teach you be more proficient in your heels but the class is so much more than learning a skill. It’s about the confidence you get from The Strut. This is why I connect so much with the Money Supermarket advert (for those of you who didn’t see it, here it is) although I flip the concept slightly. See, Dave get’s his insurance from MS which makes him feel EPIC which in turn makes him strut. In Strutology, we will strut, which will in turn make us feel EPIC and then go out and do epic shizzle!
Incidentally, as you may have realised, with the class being more about The Strut and less about the heels, the whole class can be done in trainers, so please, if the heels are putting you off, still come along!!
Out of My Comfort Zone
I get excited just thinking about it! Thinking about the effect the class has on ladies (not exclusively ladies by the way) and all of the great testimonials I have from women who have discovered things about themselves that they never knew… HOWEVER… I am mega nervous! “Nervous, Zoe? You? But you’re all about the confidence!” I hear you say. Body Confidence, yes! Strutting my shizzle, yes! Dancing, yes! Communicating with my body, yes! But for the first time ever, I will be doing a 30 minute talk on Body Confidence. Eeeeeeek!! Put me on stage in front of 2000 people and ask me prance about, no problem, but ask me to TALK about it, I’m out of my comfort zone.
But that’s the beauty of this, for me… I’m doing what I advise everyone else to do. Like the Baz Luhrmann song I so often refer to says “do one thing a day which scares you”. And I’m really putting myself out of my comfort zone. But I’m also really looking forward to figuring out exactly what i’m going to say and how I’m going to say it and what processes I go through to get the end product. I can see that it will be a major step forward for my business and the direction I want to go in; public speaking seems to be the next step for me and all I can do is put forward my little secrets for success in body confidence and at the same time build up some more secrets for success in my business. Maybe I’ll share those with you one day!!
So I’m hoping that you will come and join me and support me and take away something more than just proficiency in heels, the power of The Strut but also the wonderful vibe of women supporting other women. I know it’s going to be a lovely morning so book you place now.
