Dance is on the rise in television and film, and as the West Coast Correspondent for Dance Network, The Emmys is one of the many scenes where she goes to report on the ever-evolving commercial dance world.
For Kristyn, dance has come full circle. Her first true love was ballet. As a dancer, the discipline and hard work involved in ballet carried into her academics through college. After graduating from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts dance program, she danced professionally doing several national tours with dance companies and tours. This led to an unexpected spin of opportunity in her dance career. She was hired to host a children’s dance video.
“I might not be a contestant on ‘So You Think You Can Dance,’ but I love that I get to experience it from behind the scenes,” Kristyn affirmed.
Kristyn also hosts a one-hour dance interview show called, ‘To The Pointe.’ Recently, she sat down with legendary director and choreographer, Vincent Paterson, to discuss his career, the evolution of dance and the importance of being a well-rounded performer.
