Blush started in Feb 2008 with 6 poles, a few mats and a studio in Fallowfield. Over the past 7 years we have added teachers, new classes such as burlesque and Aerial classes and run sessions at venues in Hazel Grove, City Centre & Cheadle. We have produced 5 student showcases, each time with an increase in performer skills, cast size and audience numbers. 2 years ago we opened the studio in Stockport, growing it from a shell with stinky carpets and a few poles to what it is today, floor, mirrors, poles, hoops, silks, mats, kitchen, toilet (yes there was no toilet!) office and lovely pink walls and grey pillars.
We have invested in training new team members to offer an expertly qualified team who deliver a wide variety of classes with high standards. We also invest in regular team training to ensure we are up to date with knowledge and provide opportunities for students to grow into making a career of what they enjoy doing. Team members have travelled to increase their knowledge and we have been lucky enough to take training with teachers from Cirque Du Soleil, Skills Active, and European, national and international champions in aerial arts, burlesque and pole dance. We have also opened up two successful franchises in Hyde and Sheffield.
Becky, the manager and owner of blush has qualified as a teacher trainer, she has written teacher training courses for burlesque fitness and pole and aerial choreography whilst delivering accredited instructor training for aerial hoop and pole dance to teachers all over the UK and Europe with Spin City. Its been a fun 7 years and however long you have been at Blush we hope you have seen the company grow, classes, services improve and expand along with your own goals and skills.
Over the past 7 years, blush prices have remained the same. The £48 term fee for 6 sessions was introduced 7 years ago and has never changed. We introduced the member fee in 2013, which offered a discount on the £48 term fee and option to budget monthly, along with offers such as free workshops and discounts on drop in classes.
After reviewing the amount of investment in training, equipment and staff over the past 7 years, we can see the business has grown greatly and have decided to increase our termly paid classes by £1 per class.. Our membership prices will remain the same. Therefore you can still pay the same price you are paying now by choosing to pay membership rather than a 6 weekly term price. We believe that by increasing our prices by £1 per termly paid classes we are still offering huge value for money whilst also rewarding our loyal customers who choose to pay monthly membership fees, by not increasing their fees
Price increases will be applied to Aerial Silks, Aerial Hoop & Pole Fitness Classes:
Burlesque and other drop in class prices will remain the same.
4 classes was £40 (£10 per class) will now be £44 (£11 per class)
6 classes was £48 (£8 per class) will now be £54 (£9 per class)
12 classes was £86 (£7 per class) will now be £96 (£8 per class)
Our membership rates are:
£32 per month for one class per week
£56 per month for two classes per week
£114 per month for three classes per week
£114 per month for four classes per week
We ask for a minimum of 3 months of payment for membership, no other commitment is necessary.
For members who are paying the prices set in 2013 – 2014. Your membership rates will remain will remain the same. If you wish to switch type of membership/stop and restart membership. You will switch to the new membership rates listed above.
The prices will go into effect from 1st April 2015. Any terms purchased before this date which start after this date will be charged at the old rate.
We hope you understand the thought which is behind this decision and hope you see the value offered at our classes. We believe it a fair reflection of prices in the industry and reflects the level of service we offer along with remaining good value for money.
