Episode 9 :: Alethea Austin



On this episode, we have the one and only Alethea Austin. Alethea is regarded as one of the foremost pole dancers in the world, known for her sensual movement, her raw, gritty, powerful performances, and for her creative vision, both as a showgirl and a business woman. On this episode, we talk about how she’s built her career in pole through diverse channels, how she’s transitioned from competing and touring into opening her own studio and creating high-caliber pole dance productions, and how important it is to follow your own path in order to be relevant and avoid burn out. We also delve into the importance of investing in education as a business owner and the realities of pulling off her large-scale pole dance competition, Miss Pole Dance America.
