Here at Youth Fed, we’re proud of the support we provide to thousands of young people all across the north-west. But we couldn’t maintain our excellent commitment levels without the generous donations we receive from a combination of organisations and individuals. With this in mind, I would like to introduce you to Apsara Dance based in Chester.
This is a business that’s going places and has been promoting fitness and health alongside the empowerment of women since 2009. Apsara Dance is proud to be Chester’s busiest pole dance school and offers classes that combine gymnastics, dancing and performance art.
Pole fitness is a body-positive activity that helps to build the upper body, leg strength and that all-important core. Apart from seeming to defy gravity at times, the exercise is of medium to high intensity, targets large and small muscle groups and can dramatically improve flexibility, cardiovascular health and overall wellbeing.
Apsara Dance is run by a dedicated team that is creating a positive experience in the community. Leading the challenge is founder Lisa Marie Williams who is also head instructor, choreographer and multi-award-winning pole dancer.
As well as teaching and running the business, Lisa and her team put on Apsara Dance Showcases to enable students to perform before audiences and family and friends. She is also involved in charitable work as Chair of Tony’s Big Bottle Society, an awareness campaign in memory of her late brother that looks to raise the profile of oesophageal cancer.
Forward thinking practitioners like Apsara Dance are making great progress in promoting the benefits to health that pole fitness brings. Their tailored programmes bring out the best improvements possible.
Here at Youth Fed, we’re very proud of our partnership with Apsara Dance and we wish them continued success in the future. They possess the right levels of tenacity and creativity to continue their upward trajectory. Of course, their continuing success is good for the Youth Fed and our ambitions to bring together young people in need with organisations and individuals that are prepared to help.
