New podcast is live! And this week we have LA turned British-based pole babe, Crystal Gibson. On this episode, we talk about Crystal’s journey from erotic dancer and party girl to professional poler and mum, how she values her well-rounded pole training from sensual to athletic to showgirl styles of pole, her experience transitioning from pole in Los Angeles to England, and we have some insightful discourse about the future of pole, including kids in pole, running her dream studio, and financially supporting the industry as a whole. Check out the full episode here, then find more from Crystal below!
Where did you grow up, and what is your current home town?
I was born in Virginia but raised throughout Washington State, and a brief time lived in Florida, South Carolina and Montana. My mother had 6 kids by the time she was 30 and we lived pretty much a hippy lifestyle. I currently live in the West Midlands, England. Just outside of Birmingham & Coventry. It’s where my husband grew up.
