Introducing Zoe McNulty
Creator and founder of School of Strut, Zoe McNulty, is on a mission to help women find self-love, self-confidence and happiness within their own bodies.
At 5ft2 and a size 14-16, Zoe was always branded slightly ‘too large’ for her height. Although, sat here with us, Zoe looked like the queen of confidence she told us it wasn’t always like this. Zoe has grown up with a dance background and was always surrounded by what she labelled, ‘beautiful, skinny girls’, which took its toll on Zoe’s confidence. She was at university and could no longer afford her gym membership, so offered her dance service as a way to begin teaching dance classes. The gym signed Zoe up as their main dance instructor which is where Zoe excelled.
“I could have been a professional dancer, but I avoided the conventional dance world as I thought I was too big.”
School of Strut
Zoe noticed the positive change she felt within herself when she just let herself go and danced. This is how she first discovered ‘School of Strut’, the unique sexy style of dance that empowers women. Zoe says that her brand is about moving to music, letting go and connecting with your ‘inner diva’. She states, ‘it will increase your confidence, release endorphins and have you smiling all day long!’
The classes are enjoyable burlesque style dance lessons that help you connect with your body, learn to love yourself and have fun with others. It seems Zoe is not the only one who has noticed what a positive effect School of Strut can have on your confidence; she says that the change she sees in the other women who come to the class is just incredible. Zoe helps her participants focus on the positive aspects of themselves rather than the negatives.
Zoe told us that for years she yo-yo dieted, she would starve her body then over feed it due to emotional eating issues. She states that she always had an ‘I’ll be happy when…’ type of attitude. She would tell herself, I’ll only be happy when I’m slimmer or when I’m better, but realises now she was purely convicting herself to a life of unhappiness. What if ‘when’ never happens? She realises now that all of this anxiety she felt wasted so many years of her life as she obsessed about things that might never happen. Years that she will never get back.
Live in the now!
Zoe’s, School of Strut is really about loving and caring about yourself both internally and externally. Zoe is a firm believer that if you take care of yourself food wise your body will love you right back. She says, ‘do as much as you can to accept and love yourself, do not concentrate on what others are portraying. Social media is around us 24/7 and it is hiding reality. Everyone is applying airbrushing or filters or sugar coating things, so live in your life and enjoy it to the full!
