Kristen Corbo has been training as a dancer for 19 years and has become an award winning choreographer since joining the Take A Bow staff as a teacher as well as Company Director. From a very young age she pursued interests in theater, singing and dance while being apart of local productions. After several years Kristen concentrated on training as a dancer while becoming a part of a regional winning team as well as a regional winning soloist. After competing and performing for over 12 years her love for dance made her want to carry that passion over to students. Kristen graduated from Hunter College where she received a BA in Dance and an MA in Dance Education from the Arnhold Dance Education Program. Through this program she also obtained certification for dance education grades K-12. At Hunter College, she was awarded the "Award of Excellence in Choreography for Grades K-12." Since graduating she has started her own dance program in an NYCDOE school for grades 3-8 as well as becoming the dance instructor at a large summer camp where movement is incorporated to the camper’s everyday activities. Specializing in ballet, jazz, lyrical and contemporary, she hopes to enlighten students with her passion and love for dance while being able to give them a space that they can express themselves and have fun.
