The show has a literary theme, featuring stunts and costumes relating to fiction, such as Harry Potter and The Hunger Games.

Kelly McNab, who runs 44 classes a week from her studio in Unit 7, Lynx House, Brinwell Road, Blackpool, said: “Every year we do a show to keep our students motivated and give them something to work towards. It pushes them out of their comfort zones and allows them to show off their hobby to family and friends, so people can understand what we do.

“The show is a story, like a book and has songs relating to books like Harry Potter and the Hunger Games.

“We have solo and groups acts, silks, pole and hoop routines performed by our instructors and members. It is not to be missed.”

Kelly, from Kirkham, has been running the fitness studio since September 2016, coaching 80 members, from children to adults.

The 28-year-old said: “I run fitness classes and aerial silk and hoop. I got into pole fitness initially as that was quite a big thing a few years ago. Aerial hoop and silks are quite a niche thing so not many places offer it. But as I started doing pole fitness, I found out more about aerial hoop and silks.

“They work the same muscle groups and it is good to flip between the three: pole, hoop and silks. If people struggle with one, they can try another and increase their strength.

“It offers many benefits, including helping people increase their strength and keeps them toned and fit.

“It is not an easy sport to do so people feel like they have achieved something as it is a challenge.

“Classes are also a lot of fun and people enjoy it.

“I do classes for children too. It is mainly women - we have one or two men but that is it.”
