Tap Dance and Jazz
Kristen started dance classes when she was six years old at Charmette Academy of Dance in St. Louis. She took tap, ballet, jazz, and lyrical for 12 years and competed in local and national competitions for seven years. In 95 and 96 she performed in Dance St. Louis’ production of The Nutcracker at the Fox Theater, and in high school she was a member of the dance team.
Her university did not have a dance program but she missed it dearly, so she founded a dance organization on campus and choreographed and danced in theater productions on campus. She continues her passion for dance through teaching.
