Country: Canada – Edmonton, Alberta
Kristiann found her love of dance at the age of 5. Through competitive dance she explored a variety of dance styles. When she was 16, she fell in love with Casino salsa and began training throughout Canada, the United States, and Cuba. This opened her up to the joy of partner dancing and the complexities of Latin music, both of which changed her life completely. From there, she found Kizomba and has never looked back. She began teaching in 2014, building the Edmonton Kizomba scene with her dance partner and helping grow Kizomba across Canada. She has trained across Canada, the United States, Portugal, the UK and France and has taught at festivals throughout Canada. Her love of the music and connection keep her addicted to this dance.
