Kristin is a recent graduate of Sacred Heart Academy in West Hempstead, NY. While choreography is one of her strengths, she also excels in vocals, acting and piano. She has interned as a light operator, front of house, choreographer, dance instructor and performer with theatre and dance companies.

Kristin will be attending Boston Conservatory at Berklee in Boston, MA this fall. She will enter as a Musical Theater student and a candidate for the BFA in Musical Theater. She hopes to one day share her passion for theatre through performing and teaching children. Congratulations, Kristin!
