Kitty is just about as slinky, sleek and beautiful as any kitty cat out there. It doesn't get much sexier than this. Every movement, every expression, pure sex, pure kink. This girl describes herself as a "wild child", and whilst this is very very true, her demeanor, as she goes about her wildness, is almost demure and sweet in its nature. Kitty is a sweet heart. 

She tailors her workshop to each group, progressing as slowly or as fast as each class needs, ensuring there is enough to challenge everyone. For me personally; I came away with only a few new movements to work on, but let me be clear, I got a lot of out watching Kitty and seeing her movements in the flesh. From her own mouth: "When I was creating my workshop I really wanted it to be the essence of who I was as a dancer. And I think people remember my movement because of HOW I do things rather than the actual moves, so I wanted to focus on that." And in all honesty, we all attend workshops with our favourite pole dancers, not just to learn their signature moves, but to bask in their style, their personality and feel a step closer to greatness. 

The workshop began with a fast paced floor based warm up and moved on to a mixture of pole and floor based individual moves, and short combinations; each time explaining little tricks of the trade for engaging the audience. Throughout Kitty provides little snippets of information regarding the history and conventions of stripping. The class ended with some panty removing and throwing, which happened to coincide, embarrassingly, with my dad popping his head around the door to say hello (I'm usually packing up at that time). He enjoyed it, to say the least. Note to self; remember to lock the door!

Kitty receives a 4 out of 5 stars for instructor ability solely because she has only been teaching her workshop for a short time and I feel she has HUGE potential. I know from my own teaching that things naturally evolve the more you teach them; this is only going to get better. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and believed her to be a great instructor, but I know this girl is going to bring some intensely awesome shit in the future. Plus, I can't keep giving y'all 5 stars for everything ;).

If you get the chance to attend this workshop, do! It's definitely worth it.
