Bournemouth and Portsmouth dancers are embracing the ‘girly’ dance style to promote women’s freedom of expression.
The ‘Female Empowerment Movement’ has hit dance classes across the UK in a bid to educate women on self-confidence.
I want to promote that its ok to be unapologetically you, regardless of side, age, gender, income or dreams
Dorset and Hampshire teachers: Charlene Crack and Carly-Ann Purcell, have embraced this up-and-coming style with a fierce attitude on its importance.
These two teachers are activists in highlighting how important the ‘Female Empowerment Movement’ is to women of today.
Carly-Ann Purcell, teacher of Neptune Girls – Portsmouth, felt inspired by her training in LA and her idol Britney Spears to broaden the feminine dance style.
Ms Purcell explains “In our culture there are a lot of pressures on women to conform and be a certain cooker cutter version of what we see in the media. A lot of which is unobtainable and unrealistic. I want to promote that its ok to be unapologetically you, regardless of side, age, gender, income or dreams”.
This movement promotes the idea that women should embrace themselves, every curve and feature, showing anyone can express themselves through dance.
Charlene Crack, a Bournemouth based dancer of 14 years, highlights how “We all know as women when we put our hair up and our makeup off and we put on the Whitney’s and the Beyonce’s we feel like we could take on anything”.
Both ‘Neptune Girls’ and ‘Fierce!’ offer classes to women of any age and any ability in Dorset and Hampshire, aiming to expand women’s knowledge on self-importance and also offering hard working girls a chance to let go.
