Crystal Castruita, a Colorado native, studied dance as a child and continued in the performing arts as she grew up. In 2012, while in Oregon, feeling drained by her day job she longed and searched for something new to give her a better purpose in life. She went on a blind date with pole dance expecting to like it, but not expecting the healthy long-term committed relationship it has become. She performed with and choreographed pieces for the Ecdysiast Pole Dance Company for five seasons and has won titles in professional pole competitions. Her love affair with aerial arts continues to flourish since moving to Las Vegas in 2016, performing in shows and expanding her aerial exploration to include additional apparatuses.
