Kristen began her dance training at the age of seven, studying with LaRae Thackeray at LaRae’ Dance Unlimited in Layton, Utah where she studied ballet, tap, and jazz for eleven years. During this time, she performed in Ballet West’s annual production of “The Nutcracker,” attended summer intensive programs at Brigham Young University, and gained valuable student teaching experience. She attended Southern Utah University, graduating in 2016, where she minored in dance performance. In college she performed with the Cedar City Junior Ballet for five seasons, and was a member of SUU’s modern dance club, Orchesis. Since moving back to Salt Lake City Kristen has stayed active in the local dance community, teaching ballet, tap, and jazz at Starz Unlimited Dance Studio and Wasatch Arts Center, and recently at Ballet West Academy. When she isn’t dancing, she enjoys hiking, knitting, and reading.
