Crista began dancing at TDC at the age of 9. She began her dancing career in a recreation tap class and two years later she joined the Competitive Intensive Program and continued until she graduated high school. During her freshman year of high school, Crista realized her truest passion was teaching and working with children as she assisted in both recreational and CIP classes. In addition to teaching classes, Crista has also led several classes for camps, Girl Scout Troops, and VBS groups. Crista loves sharing her passion for dance with TDC’s youngest dancers. Her love for the children and families of TDC continues to grow and she looks forward to another season of inspiring young dancers!
