Recently, Kristy's been popping up at gymnastics camps and clinics, where she whips out her 'tissue' and teaches young gymnasts some Cirque tricks.
If the gymnasts have any questions about coaching changes, they should definitely ask Kristy Powell. She and her mother have the dubious distinction of coach hopping more than anyone else in recent memory. Beginner Gym(s)------Karolyi's--Cypress--Colorado Aerials--Cincinnati---Charter Oak Gliders---Colorado Aerials...and that is only from the time she was a level 10 training elite. Kristy also suffered from a similar ailment to Tessa Virtue, where her muscle casing began constricting her actual muscle. After being accepted into Cirque, there were several articles about Kristy's wait to be given a spot in an actual production. She wanted a role just as badly as she obviously wanted to land her Yurchenko 1 1/2 when sprinting down the vault runway with her infamous grimace.
Kristy put on a tissue demonstration at Woodward last month.
