Kristen has loved to dance since she was a little girl, and started developing a passion for health and fitness in high school. She graduated from Sonoma State University with degrees in Dance and Psychology, and went on to teach dance to children and adults at Creation Station dance studio. While she was teaching, Kristen started taking barre classes as a way to stay in shape, and to improve her dance technique. She fell in love with the way barre gave her a full body workout, cardio, and dance all in an hour! Kristen is now a preschool teacher at Anneliese Schools in Laguna Beach, and is happy that she can bring the joy of dance and movement to her preschool students, as well as her Barrewell clients!
