Pole Dancer Performer: Marion Crampe
My name is Marion Crampe.
2. Where are you from? Where do you live now?
I'm originally from the South of France in Lourdes. After 6 years without an established "Home" as I was constantly on the road around the world, I'm now based in Girona next to my amazing husband. Yet I spend most of my time still traveling a lot and I love it.
Performer/ Instructor/ Model: Pole Dance -Flexibility- Hair Hanging
4. When did you start pole dancing?
I start pole dancing at the end of 2006 in Paris. And after the first class, I never stopped and until nowadays I'm profoundly passionate about it.
5. What’s your favorite song to pole dance to?
One of them, that is a pretty hard question as I’m truly moved by Music and many create something special and make me fly differently. I would mention few artists I'm into lately: Ry X, Nick Murphy, Fourtet, Bonobo, and FKA Twigs.
6. What is your favorite pole dancing move?
For years I think my appreciation has been for Pole dance in general. Probably moves involving flexibility and lines are pretty significant in my journey. I would say if I have to mention one: it will be "the Eagle".
7. How would you classify your dance style?
My style evolves as I do as a woman and artist. I can see and feel I'm at a different stage of my movement than I was at the beginning of my carrier or even from last year so as from session after session. I feel I am getting, each time, more connected and in harmony with what and who I am. The journey is a never-ending story and I think it is what makes Art and Life in general worth to live.
8. Where did your nickname “‘pole fairy” come from?
I can't really remember. I have always been fascinated by fairies, elves, witches and other magical beings. It might be a mix of many things. And the Pole community is full of amazing fairies, male and female.
9. What’s the best piece of advice you were given?
"Take a moment to reflect where you are, who you are and why you are..."
10. What inspires you?
Other humans with their craft and being, plants, trees and animals... I have to mention for instance I do not "follow" on Instagram (though I watch and observe a lot) much of what I do daily as pole dancing, flexibility, in that way my feed offers to discover outside of the "world" I gravitate. I follow painters, artists from different kinds, people who open my mind and nourish my seeking of discovery and understanding. I truly appreciate medias for this. What an amazing source of inspiration we have in our hands.
11. What’s next for you?
I am traveling for workshops around the world, sharing and receiving. I will be also taking part of several shows such as Kawuum, Impulse and soon more. I keep seeking for exploring and a constant research on myself. Making sure to cultivate and find Peace in what I do and what I am, for me and for the people I’m grateful to have in my life.
12. What’s your motto in life?
Go for what makes you feel alive, to the fullest.
