Miss Kristy's School of Dance was established in 2005. Our studio focuses on introducing our students to a variety of dance forms through structure yet in a fun environment. During the school year, we hold programs in studio where family and friends can observe their dancer in an informal setting. We also hold a year-end recital where dancers experience the stage, lights and costumes that goes along with performing in front of an audience. All of us at Miss Kristy's take pride in our job, enjoy our job and enjoy sharing our knowledge and talents to all of our students.
