Miss Krystal


Krystal came to us from Buffalo where she started dancing at the age of 3! Starting off her dance life with tap and continuing on to pursue jazz, lyrical, ballet, pointe & hip-hop. She also performed solos, duets and trios as she got older and qualified through training many years in ballet & pointe. Krystal began assisting 'tot' classes as a young teenager and then went on to teach older classes from there. 

Krystal has performed in a concert at First Niagara Center where the Buffalo Sabres play & has tried out for a  professional cheerleading team where she successfully made it through two rounds. 

Dancing has been an important part in Krystals life and although she has tried many activities along the way she has never given up on dance! 

Krystal was part of competition classes in tap, jazz, ballet & hip-hop & is happy to have found a studio to reignite her love of dance both on the stage and off!
