Class Description

This class is for students that want to grow in their technique, stamina, and use their expressions to strengthen their performances. Musical Theater Jazz is crisp, sharp and clean movements. Jazz grew out of ballet and holds technique to a high standard. Contemporary grew out of both ballet and jazz. It follows musicality, emotional expression of the song, and plays around with tempo. Get ready for the intensity because this class is going to be a great challenge for dancers & non-dancers alike! 


Kristen Downing

Kristen originates from the Chicagoland area and grew up in CYT Chicago. Soon after graduating, she worked at Disney World as a character performer. After the magical adventures in Florida, she went back to Chicago to train in improv at the world-renowned Second City. Kristen took her training to Biola University and began a comedy group on campus that still runs to this day. She earned her B.A. in Communication with an emphasis in Speech/Drama and minor in Biblical & Theological Studies from Biola University in 2013. After graduating, Kristen went back to the Chicagoland area and had the wonderful opportunity to choreograph musicals for a couple high schools. Some of which include the following: How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Xanadu, Mary Poppins, and The Addams Family. Now Kristen is married (to a CYTKC alumnus), and can't wait to meet new students with big dreams!
