Kristi Davar is eminently qualified to not only teach dance classes, but also to administer a dance facility. Not only has Kristi been a dance instructor for many years, she is a former professional dancer, as well. Having danced in productions throughout all corners of the globe from Europe and Las Vegas to Japan, Kristi has opened and performed for some of the most celebrated names in show business. More importantly, she understands how to reach her dance students. With patience, care and a passion for dance, Kristi pulls the best out of her dance students and their abilities. Kristi teaches jazz, musical theater and tap as well as lyrical and jazz to our adult students.
Like Kristi, our dance instructors are professionals who have the passion for their art and craft that permeates not only their lives, but also the way they impart their instruction. Some of our dance instructors are former students of Kristi. They are all technicians who are proficient at their respective dance/art disciplines. They care about the successes and pains of their students. They are not just dance teachers; they are empathic counselors, instructors, friends and fellow dancers.
The focus of Center Stage Dance and Performing Arts is that in and of itself dance is not just an art form and means of expression, but clearly part of something larger…the performing arts. Dance is certainly technique and talent, but it is also a performance that includes acting, music, stage and many other elements that all converge in the expression and art form we know as Dance. So, although here at Center Stage Dance and Performing Arts we pay attention to the craft that is Dance, we also encourage our students to embrace the broader part that dance plays in the performing arts.
