has been dancing since the tender age of three. Her training began at the Marcia Hyland Dance Center studying under Linda Polvere, Gerry Barney, Nicole Lewandowski, Norma Jean Frumento and Barbara Deal. Adding to her dance background, she has also attended hip-hop classes in New York City with Leslie Feliciano. Her skills of performance have been learned through our annual recitals, where she was often selected to lead pre-school level performers. She has taken her place in the Marcia Hyland Dance Company as well as becoming a dedicated member of our faculty.
Kristen is quite proud of her accomplishments in
pageantry, having been crowned “Pure International Miss America.” Along with many national talent wins, she has choreographed and served as
Assistant Director of the America’s Miss Scholarship Organization. In demand as a Choreographer, Kristen had the responsibility of choreographing Lenape High School’s musical production of “Anything Goes” and “Grease.” She was also a featured dancer and Choreographer for “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum” and “Man Of La Mancha” at BCC.
With her warmth and charm, she captivates the attention of her aspiring students. They respond to her caring approach with enthusiasm and determination to please their teacher. Thank you, Kristen, for sparking the imaginations of our young dancers!
