This episode I got to talk with international Pole star Gracie Buntine. I absolutely loved this interview! Gracie is a true dancer through & through, and it was wonderful to hear about her transition of being a commercial dancer, fighting her way to the front to be seen, to becoming a solo pole sensation! She talks about the ups and downs of creating a soloist career, in particular the isolation and having to ‘bare your soul’ all the time, but how it is ultimately the most rewarding career. Gracie talks about her first pole competition, her process now, and her newest venture into coaching the next generation of pole superstars! I hope you enjoy this episode. Please see links below to learn more about Gracie & to get in touch about coaching!
It was so great to sit down with Anthony De Masi (and Brian the bunny!!) to learn all about what it’s like being a full time magician!
Anthony talks all about what it takes to make it as a full time performer; the sacrifices involved, maximizing your skillset and the importance of building a strong network. We also spoke about creating and owning your own business, and passing on your skills to the next generation. Some wonderful insights of what it really takes to keep growing as an artist!
I got to sit down with the absolutely gorgeous Poppy Cherry of Maison Burlesque.
We got to talk all about the rise of the Burlesque scene in Melbourne, her personal transformations as a performer, and the ups & downs of owning your own business (hint – it’s not all sequins and feather boas!).
One of my favourite parts of this interview is Poppy’s honest overview about the realities of turning your creative passion into your career and the hard work it takes to build something sustainable. Enjoy!
Welcome to the ‘Kate sits down with…’ series! This is the first of fortnightly of interviews with amazing creative professionals from so many different fields.
First up is the gorgeous Kate Lister, an inspiring multi-passionate creative whose message about NEVER GIVING UP is something that almost every artist can relate to. Kate is an actor, dancer, model, singer and DJ.
What I loved about this interview was talking about how important it is to continue to invest in yourself as an artist. Kate is a professional DJ by trade, to ensure a flexible career that supports her acting! She utilizes her income from being a DJ and consistently re-invests this into local classes, international workshops and even funding her own film! This lady is not afraid of hard work, but it is her passion and personality that keeps her going strong! Enjoy this first interview.
