As an interdisciplinary artist and educator, Krista’s work straddles many forms and techniques bridging the fields of dance and theatre, and she is devoted to interdisciplinary training between these fields as a means to develop the most comprehensive, creative expression in contemporary performance and performers today.
Whether teaching dance technique, choreography, improvisation, composition, dance history, writing for the stage, improvisational theatre, performance presence, original performance making, grant writing, production, arts administration, or mentoring students, she consistently bridges these fields, through my own practice and curriculum.
Krista’s work over the past nineteen years, as a dancer, performer, choreographer, director, writer, interdisciplinary educator and arts administrator offer a great width and breadth of knowledge, experience and perspective for young people in the field today. She especially encourage my students to develop their own dynamic and diverse artistic voices and visions. She believes that one of the most important aspects of contemporary performance today, is the ability of the artist to develop an articulate personal aesthetic, garnered through comprehensive, cross disciplinary learning, techniques, form-making, thinking.
Krista has taught dance, theater, yoga, arts administration, performance creation, and led interdisciplinary initiatives and cross-sector collaborations everywhere from public schools to dance studios, universities to non-profits, and their board rooms. She teaches across a wide range of skill and experience levels, bringing a sense of humor and play that inspire creative engagement and a sense of ensemble, despite differences and no matter the content of the class or workshop.
