NEW Dates Here:
In this dynamic, contemporary modern class we will explore a wide range of modern dance movements while including a strong ballet base in the warm up.
The class is focused on the joy of dance and the sequences will be gratifying for both beginners and those with years of dance experience as well. The class is taught by Kristen Arnold Bell who has danced professionally in both New York and California after studying ballet at SAB (School of American Ballet linked to The New York City Ballet.) Kristen is a master teacher who fuses the joy of dance with the excitement of a challenge all while remaining warm, positive and filling her class with fun!
Kristen Bell (she/her) grew up in New Jersey and received her early training at the School of American Ballet. She graduated from Princeton University with a degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and a certificate in Dance, and she holds an MFA in Dance from NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
She has performed with TAKEDance, GERALDCASELDANCE, Margaret Jenkins Dance Company, Molissa Fenley, Robert Moses’ Kin, Skybetter + Associates, among others.
Kristen greatly enjoys having the opportunity to share her love of moving with students, and she is thrilled to be on faculty at Lydia Johnson Dance School.
