“Working with Kristie is inspiring! Her genuine positivity and determination has a powerful presence. Kristie will accept any challenge and takes nothing for granted.…that’s what I love about her most!”
– Roberta Bierman, Choreographer

In the small town of Sechelt, Sunshine Coast, Kristie began dancing at the early age of 5 where she swiftly developed the inspiration to pursue dance. Kristie’s intense training in the styles of contemporary, tap, jazz funk, jazz, ballet, and hip hop led her to the world stage on Team Canada at the age of 15.

Unfortunately, at 16, she was faced with the ultimate trial of her faith and passion after surviving a life threatening boating accident that resulted in the loss of her left hand. Kristie now pursues the industry as the only single handed professional dancer across Canada. Overcoming each obstacle that has followed the amputation is what makes Kristie who she is today: a courageous, driven, passionate and inspiration to anyone she may meet on her path.

After moving to Vancouver in 2015, Kristie received a placement in Harbour Dance Centre’s Intensive Training Program where she continued to train in all styles under the direction of Moe Brody as well as acting workshops with Nadine Wright. Following ITP, Kristie’s love for dance flourished into a deeper love for hip hop. She became a member of TwoFourSeven Company under the direction of Carlo Atienza and Roberta Bierman, and they took home 1st place, representing Canada at the at WORLD OF DANCE competition in Los Angeles, California.

Kristie’s dedication has graciously given her opportunities in Vancouver’s booming film and television scene. A highlight was working closely with renowned director Kenny Ortega and legendary choreographer Jamal Sims on Disney’s Descendants 3 and Tony Testa on Disney’s Descendants 2 original movies. Kristie’s work on the Descendants franchise has resulted in exclusive interviews with Disney Channel, J-14 Magazine, and Teen Vogue. Other recent credits include Missy D’s music video “XX” and a commercial for Toyota’s Paralympic campaign featuring 6X gold medalist Lauren Woodcraft.

Other stage credits include Vancouver’s Spring Show, where Kristie received acknowledgment from The Province Of British Columbia for her powerful and inspiring role in the show as the featured soloist and choreographer of the 2017 production. Opportunities following the performance lead to traveling on full scholarship across the globe to train at the internationally renowned Institution of Higher Education of Dance in China, The Beijing Dance Academy.

Kristie is proud to work as a Physical Disability Consultant on film sets as well. Her specialty is working 1-1 with actors who are portraying a physically disabled character, coaching both the mental process and physical conditions of the disability, and helping to bring genuine honesty and connection between the actor and character. She recently spent 5 months working on the first season of Sacred Lies with Raelle Tucker (writer), Scott Winant (director) and Maja Aro (stunt coordinator) coaching lead actress Elena Kampouris on portraying a double amputee. Her work included exploring the physical aspects of her amputation and training the use of prosthetics, special affects and stunts. Kristie’s work has now been printed online in articles for The Emmys, Entertainment Weekly, Seat42D, Starry Magazine and multiple interviews from Comic Con 2018.

Aside from Kristie’s passion for dance, she also has the love for health and fitness. Kristie trains intensely in both strength training and endurance training. After recently graduating from The National Academy of Sports and Medicine with her Personal Training Certification and Performance Enhancement Specialization, she created her own company SITAFITT, educating and cross-training dancers internationally.

Powerful, inspiring, driven and determined, Kristie continues on her path with pure optimism and dedication; exploring and conquering every opportunity that is presented.
