KRISTA GROTTE SAXON
Stripping Hollywood and Perceptions Naked©
By Florida Night Train
Until about 2017, I have spent years involved in churches leading studies, events, music, etc… I rubbed shoulders with pastors, leaders alike and what I now like to call “pew-warmers”. I can tell you friends that just as in churches not every so-called pastor or christian is of genuine faith, you would be well advised to consider that not everyone who practices pole dancing is to be painted with the same paint brush as the majority of all other “users” of poles and their “dancing-lifestyle”. I know this to be a fact because in all the years I have collaborated with Krista Grotte Saxon, her outlet and art form being pole dancing has revealed to be quite the healing and expressive form to her. Unconventional healing practice, yes, but that’s Krista. Nothing about her is conventional.
Krista marches to the beat of her own drum, that is a well-known fact. She has been through hell and back in her personal life and also in the last 20 years of her career as an award-winning actress in Hollywood. Her pole stunt-dancing has become a giant middle finger to the Hollywood elite where she subtly exposes Hollywood’s vices through her art. Pole stunting began for Krista as a healing outlet from her, then, broken heart. Every bit of her story is being told through each Hollywood music video she creates. You can see it all on her new YouTube channel www.youtube.com/@polestuntinwithkrista.
As Krista states, “Perceptions and projections are fascinating concepts. I am a ballet dancer in the sky and I dance above slandering whispers. What began as a learning process for a movie role, quickly became the healthiest and strongest both spiritually and physically that I have ever been in my whole life”.
After a devastating experience as an Executive Producer among Oscar winners in Hollywood, Krista learned great lessons. She made it her mission to change the game for independent filmmakers who deserve better for the greatness they provide the world through their art. Currently in discussions with key Hollywood stakeholders representing and on behalf of producers, this ballerina is pretty much set to change some critical part of the Hollywood landscape. I guess we can say, “Hallelujah Jehovah”?
“Pole is brutal and painful” Saxon says and “just like life, we perform with a smile and show no pain”. Pole Tricks & Action Flicks!, Saxon’s channel is a Hollywood kind of exotic pole show. A sport that requires superhuman strength, finesse, and talent. Combine pole stunts, action movie scenes, and music to give you a mini movie experience with each video. In these clips, Saxon showcases the fundamental aerial tricks.
Krista Grotte Saxon is an award-winning actress (Full Moon Film Fest & Florida Motion Picture Crystal Reel Awards), Executive Producer of Nation’s Fire, a movie starring two-time Academy Award nominee Bruce Dern. This movie, Saxon thought would be her greatest accomplishment turned out to be her greatest tragedy. Now she performs on her terms. Each video is a message to Hollywood and sexy fun for you!
Pole Stunting with Krista is music videos of dangerous and action sequences set to your favorite movies and music. It is not pretty when training. There are ups and downs, there is nausea, vomiting even on spins. Krista is well aware there is hatred and great misunderstanding related to her art form. She pushes harder regardless.
“To me, these are my mini movies. I share what I must express. I believe that if we bottle up, suppress and neglect our emotions and negative experiences, this will manifest physically down the road in terms of illness—terminal illness. I’m not allowing anyone from Hollywood nor anywhere to rent space in my heart or my soul. I speak truth. The brutal truth. Truth that others are afraid to share, but also truth that is changing the game for so many brilliant creatives who deserve a chance. So I am creating a roller coaster of beauty and pain and leave that self-expression for others to relate to and release through my performances.”
When all is said and done, you can look, say, or think whatever it is you wish. It will, I assure you, not phase Saxon in the slightest way. Krista has proven herself. She is extremely grateful for the support she has received in her years of performance. She has nothing else to prove now. To celebrate her path and truly paint a picture of this ballerina who victoriously performs sky high above murmurs of slander, we took her on a rooftop downtown Tampa, Florida. Her assignment? Pole dance on said rooftop while I did a burnout next to her. The temp of that brisk morning was 3 degrees. Riding to the location meant 60 minutes on two wheels. It felt like my neck was being slit with a machete and my fingers were about to burn from freezing. It was tempting to turn around but there was no way I would let my friend down. With the windshield high above ground Krista proceeded, determined to perform in the most adverse conditions. The results were artistically stunning. Krista has a heart of gold and she is a loyal friend. The biker community has been extremely supportive of her, which she wholeheartedly and gratefully acknowledges.
