Donny Girls Do It On Chairs!

August 18, 2011

Stop the press! Burlesque Chair Dancing has finally come to Doncaster!!

What is Burlesque Chair Dancing?

Burlesque Chair Dance is a brand new form of dance fitness available to all ladies in the Doncaster area. A blend of burlesque, cabaret and modern dancing, the moves are cheeky & sexy and designed to boost confidence and self esteem in women whilst at the same time getting that essential weekly workout that we all dread!

Cleverly disguised within the routines as cheeky dance moves are a variety of resistance and toning exercises to build muscular strength and endurance and develop the cardiovascular system. The average lady can burn up to 500 calories per class whilst losing weight, having fun and making new friends.

Alongside our weekly classes we also have our Cabaret Team who perform our routines at local events, fundraisers and private parties. We support a local band Saint Harlot and have recently performed with them at a Harley Davidson rally. We also have our annual shows where all of our dancers perform routines for friends and families at a twice a year ticket only event. Every dancer has the opportunity to join our Cabaret Team at any time, but of course this is purely optional.

We regularly organise out of class activities for our members such as photo shoots, evenings out and organised events to promote the group. Many of our ladies have benefited highly from our range of services and below are just a few examples from some of our members;

  • Rosie joined the group in July 2010 suffering from acute anxiety and depression, to begin with even leaving the house and coming to one class a week was a challenge as meeting new people in a new environment was very stressful for her. Rosie took to class incredibly well and enjoyed herself and her new friends so much that she soon signed up to two classes a week. After six months she joined our Cabaret Team and began performing with us at a variety of shows, events and parties. Rosie is currently being trained up as an Assistant Instructor, she has started a part time college course and dropped a dress size. Rosie is now a confident, approachable and much more out-going lady who is also now looking forward to returning to the workplace in the near future – watch out employers here comes Rosie!
  • Kim was a size 22 and started coming to class with the pure intention of losing weight for her trip to Florida this year. She participated in all our classes alongside a healthy diet and left Manchester airport a size 14! Kim hates exercise but loves to chair dance, saying she doesn’t even class it as exercise its so much fun.
  • Dorothy is in her 50’s and a member of our Cabaret Team, she enjoys dressing up for photo shoots and performing at dance events – she tells her husband she’s at the garden centre!

We have been offering our cheeky workout for exactly one year now and have very quickly expanded from one to four classes a week across the Doncaster area.

Tuesday 7.30 – 8.30pm – Woodfield Social Club, Woodfield Road, Balby, DN4 8HL

Wednesday 6.30 – 7.30pm & 7.45 – 8.45pm Benefit Pole Fitness Studios, King Avenue, Rossington DN11 0PF

Thursday 7.15 – 8.15pm Bentley Pavilion, Askern Road, Bentley, DN5 0HU

We want to offer our classes to every woman in Doncaster, so if you are above the age of 16 and looking to add some excitement into your life come on down and join us. We dance barefoot and on a normal class night leggings and a t-shirt are just fine……………………fishnets are optional!

Can your business meet the “Star Business Challenge” in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support?

August 11, 2011

Happy 100th Birthday!!

Our South Yorkshire What’s On 4 Me region are proud to report that supporters of across South Yorkshire have been celebrating the charities 100th Birthday by arranging a series of events across the city.

Two major local fundraisers include Fancie and Nabarro have joined the challenge! Nabarro are one of the companies who signed up to the Star Business Challenge which aims to find 100 companies to raise at least £100,000 to support Macmillan. Forty-two firms have signed up so far raising more than £45,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support – with a further £48,000 pledged.

Any firms interested in signing up for the Business Challenge should call 01246 810 301 or email

Sheffield-based law firm, Nabarro marked Macmillan’s milestone birthday by handing over a cheque of nearly £12,000!!  The company has raised over £20,000 in 2011 so far, Chris Chambers, a partner from the firm, explains, “Our main fundraising event was our annual charity ball and we also entered a large team to run for Macmillan in the Sheffield Half Marathon.
We will also support Macmillan events throughout the year such as the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and Go Green for Halloween.”

Fancie joined in the celebrations by creating a giant cupcake mosaic which measured 6ft x 10.5ft.  The team arranged for cupcakes to be decorated by customers to create the mosaic!  For making a donation to Macmillan each person was shown how to decorate a cupcake and placed it on the Mosaic, they were also treated to a delicious mini cupcakes created especially for the  charity.

The Sheffield-based company which has three stores across the city has already raised over £2000 for Macmillan Cancer Support by selling a special cupcake in aid of Macmillan for 100 days.

But Macmillan is keen for more local businesses to get involved. Area Manger, Steve Loane said, “Figures show that four in ten people will now be affected by cancer which means the support of companies like Nabarro has never been more important to Macmillan.”

Anyone for Rocktails?!

August 9, 2011

Guest Blog by Diane Francis

Bristol & Somerset What’s On 4 Me

There is nothing we at What’s On 4 Me like more than sampling new products and letting you know what we think!! This month we were delighted to be invited to try Rocktails, the new cocktails that have been launched in Cardiff and Bristol this summer, before being rolled out to the rest of the UK later this year. So I rounded up a few girlfriends for a tasting session!

Rocktail range

Rocktails are available in three fruity flavours: Frostberry, Arctic Passion and Coolcumber. They are a fusion of refreshing fruits and vodka that have been expertly blended to create a spectacular frozen cocktail that looks and tastes amazing!

Frostberry flavour RocktailRocktails come in a handy double serve pouch, which you simply pop into the freezer and leave for around 4 hours, then take it out and leave at room temperature for 20 minutes, give it a squeeze to awaken the frost and then pour.

We were expecting a normal fruity vodka-based cocktail, but we were being unfair to Rocktails! Firstly the fabulous frost-effect you get on your glass makes these cocktails look as if they have been expertly mixed and served by your very own bartender. Then you taste them – refreshing, smooth, sophisticated, elegant – these are for discerning adults who know a thing or two about a decent cocktail! We spent the next hour debating the relative merits of the three flavours and trying to decide which was our favourite, which was, it turned out, an impossible task!

We are all now huge Rocktails fans and will be hot-footing it to those bars that have joined the Rocktails revolution! But fear not if you’re not near Bristol or Cardiff, Rocktails are available NOW to buy online throughout the UK!!

Nottinghamshire What’s On 4 Me is here!!

What’s On 4 Me introduces our latest region and owner, Heather Carroll

“Hi, I’m Heather, the What’s On 4 Me NOTTINGHAMSHIRE Franchisee and it is my mission to bring you all of the local activities, classes and events that are happening around the region.

I’m a single mum, with a beautiful (and headstrong!) 8 year old daughter. When I’m not operating “mum’s taxi” to ferry her to her many clubs and activities, or running three businesses from home, I still try to find some “me” time to meet new people and do the things I enjoy. I love the theatre and am involved in amateur dramatics and I have recently rediscovered Modern Jive dancing, which is very addictive!

Finding local activities and events you would like to take part in can often be difficult and time consuming and this is what inspired me to take on the Nottinghamshire What’s On 4 Me site.

This brand new website from the What’s On 4 family is dedicated to adults of all ages, from all walks of life, with interests as diverse as you can imagine. The website quickly shows the classes, groups, activities and events in NOTTINGHAMSHIRE that YOU can be involved with. Now there’s no excuse not to have a fantastic social life!!

So, why not do a search and find out what you can join in with! You may be very surprised to see What’s On 4 You!

I really hope you enjoy using the site as much as we do and if like me you would like to work from home, have a strong Telesales background and want to create a better work / life balance, then please email me for our list of work-from-home Telesales opportunities.”
