KRISTIN DOBBY

From Toronto Ontario, Kristin began dancing under the direction of Cheryl and Cathy Coffey. She has advanced training in tap, jazz, ballet, lyrical, modern/ contemporary and hip hop. Kristin has studied with professionals at The Edge in Los Angeles, at Broadway Dance Centre in New York and with Toronto's leading choreographers. She continues to work as a professional dancer, actor, singer, dance instructor, choreographer, certified dance adjudicator and Zumba instructor. Kristin has performed on Celebrity and Princess cruise lines, at theme parks, in music videos and commercials, and as part of a documentary on Canadian tap dance (W Network/Paula Skimmin.) Kristin has disappeared for acclaimed magician Greg Frewin in his world class show, Beyond Belief (Greg Frewin Theatre), and was thrilled to perform as a featured dancer in the 2015 Pan Am Games Closing Ceremonies at Rogers Centre (CBC/ Jeff Dimitriou/Paul Becker.) You can check out Kristin’s work in the upcoming feature film First Round Down (Substance Prod/Brett & Jason Butler) and on the hilarious improv sketch comedy series, The Amazing Gayl Pile (NBC Comedy/Brooks Gray.) Kristin was honoured to perform the lead role in contemporary exploration of death and the meaning of life, Bone Rhythm: Awakened (Stratford Springworks Fest/Robin Calvert.) She recently returned from the North American tour of Saturday Night Fever (NorthCore Prod/Marcia Kash), and has put her flares and platforms away (for the moment!) Kristin has taught and adjudicated all forms of dance for over a decade and is on demand throughout Canada and the U.S. as an innovative choreographer. She loves to share the joy of dance with this next generation of dancers!
