About Us


Miss Kristin has been teaching on Long Island for the majority of her career. Prior to teaching, she trained at the top schools in New York City and was featured in music videos and television shows. Her passion for teaching outweighed the thrill of performing. Her dream has always been to have a studio for young dancers where they are not just learning to dance, but being inspired to be their best. Her teaching career began in the early 90’s and she has always been very popular among her students wherever she taught. Some of her former students have their children enrolled here at THE STUDIO.

THE STUDIO started out in a hair salon in Garden City with just 15 students. In less than 2 years THE STUDIO is one of the fastest growing dance schools in the area. Class sizes are kept small so each student is afforded individual attention in a group setting. No child gets lost in the shuffle ;). Since opening THE STUDIO we have an award winning dance company that competes nationally and will be competing and performing nationally and internationally this season. We welcome all dancers of all ages and levels for our recreational and company classes. This season we are proud to announce our new Special Needs Program. Our staff consists of professionals degree in Special Education, Child Psychology, as well as Dance Education. We are fortunate and excited to be able to bring this program to our community.

A pillar in the creative community, dedicating its resources and efforts to building a positive and engaging environment. For us, at THE STUDIO, the most important thing is to ensure students and faculty make connections with each other and themselves as dancers.
The staff at THE STUDIO share a passion for life and positive attitude for creativity. It is our goal to encourage personal growth through all disciplines of dance. Nothing is more fulfilling than self-expression, especially while promoting self-esteem.
