The Latest interview is Marion Crampe from France. She has been a amazing dancer all her life, so she picked up pole dancing so easily. She has performed at some amazing places and I have attached my favourite video of her on the beach. This is what Marion has to say.

How long have you been doing pole dancing? The moment you realized you love it?
The year 2006 was a revelation for me since I took my first pole dance class. I felt in love instantly with this art, train everyday and started teaching six months later.
Describe your style
My pole style is very similar to a dancer because I aim at moving fluidly with lightness on and of the pole with precision and beautiful lines.
“The eagle” (also called Bielman) and “Rainbow Marchenko”.
I, normally, prefer to focus on combos instead of single moves. I really think this is where we can be the most creative.
Tools of the trade, what can’t you live without when pole dancing?
I actually don’t need anything, I am a 100% natural. LOL.
Any hobbies or passion outside of pole dancing?
I love travelling and meeting people from all around the world, laugh to tear with my girls, cappuccino and my physiotherapist which I could not live without.
Can’t live without?
Capuccino, poledance, sparkles… and LOVE.
