The People Party

Who are we? The People Party. We want to make a difference. We’re not too far off from some of our outstanding peers. As a team we have much to offer with several perspectives to aid our direction. We’ve decided to plan networking events that would bring more forward-thinking people together. As we prepared for our 1st annual event, “Work Hard, Play Harder”, we came together to discuss the details of our first endeavor. Words were thrown around, but being the group of people we are, there were many off-topic, deep, and enlightening conversations in between sessions. Specific words came up during these intermission periods that stood out dramatically. I wrote these down, looked them up, and later decided these terms were descriptive of the energies, spirits, and positivity we wanted to shoot into the world.

I researched “UBUNTU” and this term refers to the general sense of human kindness to the extent that they believe in the universal bond of sharing that connects humanity. This touches aspects of socialism as they aim to redistribute wealth.

“MBONGI” touches educational aspects as this term comes from an African village, translating from the Congolese language as “learning place”. Literally, mbongi is a circle of learning where people gather to learn how to effectively contribute to the community. Mbongi simultaneously acts as the name of an organization founded by Titus Sompa in 1988. He provided artistic and educational programs throughout the U.S. and abroad. Their vision is “to create ‘villages’ within communities so that people can come together and celebrate their gifts, (embrace) the joy of being connected to body, spirit, and each other.”

“EMPIRE BUILDING” has both a political science and a business definition. The first deals with acquiring resources, land, and influence over economies outside their own borders to expand in size, power, and wealth. The latter deals with individuals or small groups attempting to maximize job security and promotability by aiming to control key projects and initiatives.

Aside from the short-lived political party, the “Populists” who were also known as The People Party, we were unaware of any other similar names for a progressive group. We soon all learned of a community activist organization named The People’s Party II (the Houston chapter of the Black Panthers) who initially formed to address police brutality and corruption towards black and brown people. However, they later collaborated with The MAYO (Mexican community activists) and The John Brown Revolutionary League (White community activists) to bring about positive changes in their working class communities by supporting each other’s survival programs.

We, The People Party LLC, consist of a unique team driven to encourage and develop the artistic community, starting in the Greater Houston Area, through artist promotion, entrepreneur marketing, and networking events. As a representation of our generation, we focus on entertainment and education, penetrating industries by the degree and/ or experience. We are an alliance of family and close friends, with a variety of talents to offer and a similar dream to work toward. Believing we were chosen to help our people, we aspire to build businesses and leaders alike. Branching from our parent company, The People Party LLC, will be smaller businesses, managed and marketed by We, The People. We have plans to inspire the youth through open mics and entrepreneur fairs, bring together business and artistic minds, make black-owned businesses the place to be, and educate our people as we continue to educate ourselves. Once we get people to understand, become aware, and ready for change, we will build OUR wealth and bless our future generations in mind, body, and spirit.

Tavarus “Retro Hendrix” Durgin was born and raised in Mobile, AL. This Army Veteran currently resides in Houston, TX. After serving his country on a Combat Tour in Afghanistan, Taxfree Global was created. Retro Hendrix now handles marketing and promotions, and is also a Hip Hop Artist.

After a year long combat in Afganistan, Retro Hendrix and Co-Founder, Gai Taxfree decided that they did not want to work for anyone anymore; so they put everything they had into making good quality music. They now operate a Black Army Veteran Owned Business.

Retro Hendrix utilizes social media and word of mouth advertising to market the business. “We are in the age of Technology. I can sit in the comforts of my home and reach out to my clients all over the world,” says Hendrix.

After returning to society from the Army, adapting back to civilian life was one of the hardest things for Hendrix; who still deals with this today. “Its hard to get people to understand why you acting a certain way, says Hendrix “I’ve seen a lot of things the average human will never see in there lifetime.”

Hendrix loves the fact that he can get up and do what he wants to do, but getting people to believe in you and your brand can be one of the most challenging things in starting your own business. “Believe it or not, family members are the worst,” says Hendrix.

Over the coming months, Hendrix plans to continually grow the company and never look back. Over the next five years, Hendrix plans to employ 10 to fifteen individuals to help build the TaxFreeGlobal Brand. For someone looking to start their own business, Hendrix says, “Give it all you have and never look back; Never give up on what you believe in”

Catch Retro Hendrix each and every Friday at Avani Lounge, 5711 Hillcroft. For tickets: RSVP

“Pole dance, Chair dance, Belly dance, and Stretching”

These days it seem like the new hangout spot is where you can go to watch pole dances. Females are visiting these establishments as “Ladies Nigh Out” events and they do not seem to be taboo locations for guys to take their female companion out for a drink. For those of you interested in taking the more applied approach to experiencing pole dance, the fine people at Verticality Pole Fitness are here to give you the information that you need. And don’t worry if you don’t have prior experience they offer small classes and a fun friendly exercise environment

Verticality Pole Fitness, which first opened its doors in June 2011, is located at 554 Waugh Drive in the River Oaks area of Houston Texas. Their classes are focused on fun as they workout to different kinds of music in the many classes they offer in addition to pole dance. Although their most popular classes are the pole classes, which combine dance, gymnastics, strength and flexibility, you might find one of the other classes they offer interesting. They also offer pole conditioning, chair dance, belly dance and stretching, lower body and core toning. These classes are held 7 days a week and each class lasts 55 minutes. They also offer longer workshop sessions as well as private parties. What make their classes different from other aerobics classes are their approach to drop dress sizes and gaining a sense of confidence. Doesn’t this sound too good to be true?

So what are the pros and cons of the classes? Well, one thing someone can appreciate from the class structure is that classes are small and cap attendance at one student per pole, 20 on non-pole classes, so students get personal attention. While most students love this, with a small class, you cannot hide. So, this is something students can love and hate. In the pole dance classes, the main emphasis is on the upper body and core but they also address lower body toning in our Abs, Booty, Core class.

One of the challenges that Verticality Pole Fitness instructors face is putting together a class each week that pleases our customers. Their goal is to offer a class that is fun, challenging, and safe but this can be quite a balancing act and student input is a motivation. This is great because students have the opportunity to make the class their own and that increases individual motivation to achieve fitness goals.

Speaking of goals, Verticality Pole Fitness trainer, Christine who has been pole dancing for almost 6 years wants, to continue to grow by satisfying the needs of her current customers. Like many women, I struggled with finding a workout that I enjoyed and would continue long term. I was curious about pole dancing, but couldn’t find anyone who would try a class with me. Then, I broke a couch on my birthday. It was not a feel good moment. After that happened, I decided to be brave and try a class on my own. It was the most challenging – and fun – workout I had ever done, and I still love it today!” She says, “We have a points program that encourages referrals, and we also participate in trade shows. My goal is to outgrow the current location – we still have a way to go!”
