The next pole files interview is with the current Miss Pole Dance Victoria, Kristy Sellars. Kristy is an amazing performer, I had the privilege to watch her perform at Miss Pole Dance Victoria competition. Kristy has the ability to capture the audience with her amazing choreography and theatre mixes.
Her Miss Pole Dance Victoria video is a must to watch, Kristy transforms into a air hostess and finishes the performance with a show stopping light up bra!!!!
So lets hear all about Kristy…………
Kristy Sellars started her professional dance career in 2003, she has since then worked in Australia and overseas choreographing and dancing in live shows, music videos and TV series such as So You Think You Can Dance.
She started pole dancing in 2007 and quickly became addicted. In 2009 she competed in her first ever professional competition Miss Pole Dance Victoria. She then went on to place second runner up the following year and receive a wild card entry to Miss Pole Dance Australia where she wowed the crowd with her creative Pirates of the Carribean performance.
After taking a year off competing to have a baby, Kristy returned to perform at Encore Sydney Pole Show with unique pole interpretation of a psychotic mental patient. Later that month she competed once again in Miss Pole Dance Victoria and took out the title!
She then choreographed 4 pieces, and performed in 2 of them for Encore 2013 including ‘Train’, which showcased the talents of some of the top pole performers in the co
untry in a unique and fun routine.
Kristy is thrilled to be running the Victorian Pole Championships this year in May, and in June she will tour the US to teach, and will be performing at ‘Girl Next Door’ and the ‘International Pole Convention 2013’.
How long have you been doing pole dancing?
Almost 6 years but was not really training properly for a year around the time I had my baby Rylie She’s 18 months old now.
The moment you realised you love pole dancing?
After the very first class I did! I got in the car and put my drink bottle between my legs because the skin was so sore, and all I could think was ‘this is so painful but I’m so coming back next week’! haha
Describe your style
My background is in all types of dance so I guess that’s what I do on the pole. I like to do as many different types of performances as I can… keep surprising people
That’s a ‘tricky’ question I guess the move I’ve always loved training and creating different variations of is the shoulder mount. There’s so much you can do with it ie: The Sellars Bomb! and the walk down!
Tools of the trade, what can’t you live without when pole dancing?
I use tite grip and then a little bit of itac, as well as jogging on the spot and holding a plank right before I go on stage so I’m just a little bit warm/sweaty so I can grip to the pole easier.
Any hobbies or passions outside of pole dancing?
Family love watching my little girl grow every day.
I love movies/shopping/girly catch ups too
