Kristin Vincent, Owner & Founder
The proud owner and director of Xpress Yourself Dance Studio, Miss Kristin, began dancing at a young age, studying several disciplines including: tap, jazz, ballet, pointe, lyrical, acro and hip-hop. Though she has a love for all dance, Miss Kristin is truly in her element teaching and choreographing tap!
Miss Kristin continued her life-long passion for dance and received a degree in both Performing Arts and Business Administration with a minor in Dance Theater from the University of Tampa. It was during this time that Miss Kristin began choreographing and teaching. She also received many accolades at her alma mater including: Choreographer of the Year and Dance Student of the Year.
A talented teacher and choreographer, Miss Kristin continued to perform as well and was a featured dancer/singer/actor in Rome Saladino's production of "Singin' and Dancin' in the Rain."
While she loves being on the stage, her passion for teaching has always come first and she strives to be a life-long learner by attending events such as the Dance Teacher Summit and Dance Life Teacher Conference.
Every student that walks through the doors earn a special place in Miss Kristin’s heart. From babies to adults, she does all that she can to give her students a quality dance education and a second home to her growing dance family.
