Owner & Program Director

Kristen began her dance journey at a young age at Orange County Performing Arts Academy (OCPAA) in Yorba Linda, CA. She began competing at the age of six, and have the opportunity to train throughout Orange and Los Angeles counties with many titans of the industry. Following a successful competitive career, including multiple solo titles, she went on to earn her BFA in Dance Performance from Chapman University in Orange, CA, while also beginning her teaching career.

Beginning at age 18, Kristen had the opportunity to begin working with dancers of multiple levels in studios and high school dance teams across Southern California. Some of her past students have gone on to head their own dance programs, be award winning choreographers, perform in professional companies, compete in World of Dance and SYTYCD, and even be founding members of Online Dance Education sites, such as Steezy.  Even more have gone on to do great things in the world outside of dance. She is most proud of the relationships she has formed with her students over the years and seeing the role that dance education has played in making each of them successful in their own paths.
