Meet the instructor, Kristen Dasto:
A six year Rockette Summer Intensive alumni, originally from Southaven, Mississippi, Kristen began dancing at the young age of two years old and hasn’t stopped! She moved to New York in October of 2015 to attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) where she trained with industry professionals in dance, voice, and acting. After her first year, Kristen transferred to begin her training at Broadway Dance Center (BDC) in their Training Program where she graduated with a Certificate of Completion in April, 2017.
Shortly after graduating from BDC, Kristen received her a certification in Classical Pilates through PowerPilates.
Kristen is currently working as the Head Dance Team Coach for Branson High School’s Dance Team, The Sweethearts. Along with choreographing all routines for the team to perform at special occasions and sporting events, she is getting her team ready for competitions with the hope of qualifying for the State Championships in the spring of 2020.
When she is not performing, she continues her own training in dance, voice, and acting as she knows always more to learn and room to grow in the arts industry.
Kristen loves helping others learn the essentials that she has learned and watching them grow to become the best they can possibly be.
