Ugh. Trying to re-vamp and basically overhaul our classes/sessions/scheduling package to make everything simpler for everyone, including me.
Good GOD what a pain in the butt this is! Can't I magically email someone and say, just DO it, have them read my mind, and then magically have the coolest website EVER? Apparently not. Bummer. Anyhooters, that's what I'm working on as I sit here with a nasty cold.
So basically I'm trying to incorporate a Membership thingee, complete with like a punchcard or something like that, and making more single pole, chair, exotic dancing, etc. classes so that you can come more than once a week, or skip a week or whatever. You see, I've found people are afraid of commitment, even to four or five week sessions sooooo...I thought it'd be easier to put a bunch of single classes in and you can come when you want to. Still REALLY small classes for pole classes-five or less per class, which yes, DOES make me more expensive than the competition BUT...remember there are only FIVE or less people per class--so YOU LEARN. And your'e all at the same level, not just shoved into one big room with 15 other people of different levels.
So, if anyone has any input, advice, or suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them because I want to create classes that are easy and fun for you all to come to each week. Doooo email me at Info@GypsyRoseDancing.com with any comments or ideas because the easier everything is for you all, the easier it is for me. And I'm ALLLL ABOUT BEING EASY! (at least that's what it says on the Boys' room wall).
PS-Below is my ranting about getting over the fact that the studio is in Allston
Yes, we're located in Allston. Some people cringe and think "gross" when they hear Allston, but actually...it's a really cool place and we're directly off the Mass PIke, so for those of you Boston chikitas driving home from work Westbound on the Pike...stop in for a class after work and by the time the class is over, you've missed all the traffic and get home around the same time!
We're like 5 minutes away on the Mass Pike from the Copley Plaza onramp, and we're DIRECTLY off the Pike, so you don't have to go through all those crazy sidestreets. Plus you can get there on the B Line Green Train, the Packard's corner stop. Soooooo....if you aren't planning your parties with us because we're in *horror of horrors* ALLSTON...AGAIN I SAY, GET OVER IT. And for the LOVE OF GOD, we have a large PRIVATE parking lot with plenty of FREE PARKING.
Actually, I'll admit...I turned my nose down at Allston when I was looking to move the studio from Boylston Street ($6000/month rent was just getting to be too much after six years there) I was all...ewww....Allston...but you know, honestly, I actually really like it.
Really, and for true.
The shops and bars/restaurants on Harvard Street (directly outside out door) are actually REALLY cool...very INTERESTING restaurants and cute shops with unique stuff. So I've decided I actually really like Allston, or at least the neighborhood we're in (we're right next to Pizzeria Regina, in the Ace Tickets building). The people who own the shops around us are really sweet and people generally just LIKE everybody.
Speaking of "Liking Everybody"...it's the beginning of the school year and I don't know about you all, but I always dreaded the beginning of the school year, thinking I wouldn't have any friends because I was so shy and self-conscious. When I met new people I *instantly* thought I wasn't good enough and that they instantly didn't like me.
I think back about how much more fun I would have had, how many more experiences I could have enjoyed, if I had only had the confidence in myself. Now, of course, I have that confidence. Naturally age has a lot to do with it, I'm 43 now, but (okay seriously...I'm watching "When Ghost Attack" and this ghost thing moved this chick's baby from its crib, and they're STILL in the house! I would be soooo GONE if there was anything negative that threatened or touched my kid. I don't have any kids, hell, I don't even LIKE kids, but if I had one and some ghosty was being a jerk, I'd get that kid out so fast! But I digress...).
Now where was I? Oh yes, I had no confidence. Soooo...because I *have* confidence now...I know I can help those of you in high school AND in college who felt like I did...didn't know who to sit with, would rather sit and eat in your room than by yourself in the cafeteria, etc. Believe me, I'VE BEEN THERE.
Yeah, I teach pole/chair/striptease/lap dancing because i WAS a real stripper back in the day...but if you tell me you need to gain confidence, you don't feel sexy, you feel fat, not pretty, or just not sure of yourself...I can help you with that too. Instead of just being like a motivational speaker or MERELY TELLING you stuff to make you feel better...I teach through the platform of exotic and pole dancing
This of course goes beyond high school or college kids...but even at work, if you feel left out by people in your department (been THERE many times too), or if your boyfriend/husband/significant other/parents/siblings/"friends" etc. don't make you feel very good, come to Gypsy Rose because I honestly *DO* care that you feel good about yourself, and I *DO* know how to help you.
I know, sounds all corny, but it's true.
Really, AND for true!
(Oh MAN there's a skunk in the neighborhood and he just let loose I SWEAR right outside the window. A little FYI...wet tea bags gets rid of skunk smell on a dog or your person, or whatever.
You know...I just had a thought! After a few parties or classes in a row, I get pretty ripe in the 'pits, let's not kid ourselves here. I wonder if applying wet tea bags...instead of spritzing the 'pits with "deodorant" that doesn't work...would do the job.
Hmmm...If tea bags can get rid of skunk smell...and I can certainly outstink a skunk any day (tho I prolly shouldn't brag about that)....I bet it would work great for me! Now, what flavor....Cinnamon, Chai, perhaps some Earl Grey for our 'pits today?)
Oh yeah, what was I yapping on about...our classes! Soooo...come by and check out our One Hit Wonder, Pole on the Go, Chair, Floor, & More, Dance For Your Man, and/or our Rebounding classes or any of the other crazy classes we offer.
Also....we'll be having a recital toward the end of October--those are fun because it gives you something to work toward....you get to dance to two songs of your own choice (not back to back-we go through a lineup), and you collect TIPS from every member of the audience after each song! You keep ALL your money, and the audience is for Family and Friends ONLY. Then you get a totally cheesy certificate proclaiming you're an Official Exotic Dancer AND you get a garter with your stage name engraved in a heart-shaped dog tag.
Because you HAVE to have a stage name by the second class, otherwise you're automatically Chlamydia or Gonorrhea. Seriously.
And the recitals are for EVERYONE--we've had plus-sized girls, super tiny girls, and even a 67 year old woman one time (and she made more in tips than ANYONE!). You can be creative and match your songs with your costumes...and again, dance to whatever song moves YOU!
Okay, going to bed now. Nighty-Nights!
PS--Oh, and if you want a class at a different time during the day, like earlier in the day than what we have posted...EMAIL US and we'll try to make it happen.
(Below is the remainder of my ramblings from a different day-it's good and encouraging and all that go-go rah-rah women power stuff, so I'm keeping it, even tho I was not just speaking of Rebounding, as it states.)
Speaking of Rebounding...they're a great way to get in shape for the summer! (Always have to throw a plug in there), as are the regular weekly Classes. If you join any Weekly Session you get FREE UNLIMITED PRACTICE TIME, as long as I'm there, which is pretty much always.
Anyhooters, A lot of people come to Gypsy Rose specifically for a workout, which is great, but to see results you need to stick with it. Don't diet and do a little bit of exercise, Do a LIFESTYLE change. Diets don't work.
Changing your lifestyle does.
It's hard, believe me. Change is the hardest thing to do when you've got a nice comfycozy bed that beckons, calls, and tempts you like the Siren it is (ah, the drama!).
What's the ONE thing a woman can do to improve her motivation, discipline, and quite frankly her enthusiasm for life when every day seems like the same old thing?
You don't mind what you do every day, but it's just. every. day. So how can you begin to change your lifestyle if you have the same daily routine?
I think the solution may be that you need something to look forward to-something that makes you want to get out of bed and seize the day.
Taking classes is a great thing-such as bouncy Rebounding classes, or Pole or Chair dancing classes where you can dress up in crazy clubwear if you want and have a blast and laugh your butt off for an hour or so.
Well naturally I'm going to suggest that because I want you to take my classes...teeheee....but really, these classes could be something different to look forward to each day, or each week. We offer so many different classes, from Chair Dancing to How to Feel Sexy to Vertical Pole, that there's bound to be a class you'd like to take.
And as always, if you've been feeling down lately because of stooooopid boys, or lack of friends, come to Gypsy Rose and take a class. It's not a bitch session, but the unintentional workout aspect of any class will boost your mind. Along with the fun and laughs.
We welcome EVERYONE at Gypsy Rose and ya know what else?
We Actually LIKE you too!
(If you've done a One Hit Wonder or Pole-on-the-Go! before with us, then let us know and we'll teach you different stuff to keep it interesting.)
So, if anyone actually took the time to read all this...sign up for lessons, mention that you read this whole thing and that the secret word is "Goat", and I'll give you 10% off the class or session you want.
Just seeing if anyone reads all this rambling...teehee. Makes me feel good to write it tho!

I never tried to be a medium, it just started happening a few years ago. I'm still afraid it's my imagination, but I've been wayyyy too accurate in the hundreds and hundreds of readings I've done for clients at the studio for it to be imagination. If you join a session or take any class I'll give you a free reading (provided there's time, or I can do it on the phone).
I don't get the lottery numbers though. I tried.
