Kristin began her dance training at the age of 4 with the London Dance Academy in Nevada under Rosemary Tal-DeHart. In her training she was examined in the Royal Academy of Dance standards for ballet as well as tested in the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dance for tap and jazz.
In 2005 she moved to Sacramento and decided to dedicate herself solely to classical ballet. Her hard work and enthusiasm for the classics have been seen in roles she performed with Pamela Hayes Classical Ballet such as Clara in the Nutcracker, Czardas Lead in Coppeliá, and Corps de Ballet in Cinderella among many others. In 2011 she began teaching dance and has continued to grow in leaps and bounds. With a focus in applying classical technique to individual dancers, Miss Kristin enjoys helping students develop in their dance education.
Various personal dance experiences have added to her love for the athleticism and emotion that can be displayed through ballet among other types of dance. This allowed her to be apart of the Conservatory of Dance's contemporary company Ballet Rejoice as a Senior Company Member and a Soloist and branch out from her classical roots. Recently, Kirstin has been apart of the American River College Honors Dance program directed by Sunny Smith and graduated with her Associates Degree. That experience threw her into a world of dancing tap, jazz, hip-hop, contemporary, and improvisation that she could not have had anywhere else.
Now, she plans on teaching and dancing, while continuing her academic studies at CSUS by pursuing a double major in Marketing and Dance.
