Krisenna’s formal dance training began at the tender age of 3. She wowed audiences with her enthusiasm for performance as a product of the Talent Factory. Years of gymnastics, tap, jazz,hip-hop, ballet and ballroom classes built a strong foundation for her career path as a professional choreographer/performer and dance/gymnastics instructor. Krisenna’s vocal training and piano lessons also helped to shape her understanding and love of music as a creative outlet.
Krisenna’s passion for music and art flourished early on, but it wasn’t until after college that she became a formal student of bellydance. Discovering the tribal fusion style presented Krisenna with a new focus which she has studied with ignited zeal by traveling all over the nation to attend workshops, intensives, and classes from some of the most highly acclaimed dancers in the world. She has completed the Level 4 Hot Pot ITS intensive training and was honored to study with Zoe Jakes, Kami Liddle, Amy Sigil, Sharon Kihara, Lady Fred & Mira Betz in the advanced/professional track at Tribal Massive in Las Vegas. Krisenna is especially grateful for her mentors, Christina Gonzales and Jenna Harder( of Shimmy Shakti Studios), Connie Jones and Amy Sigil of Unmata. In addition, she has recently completed Rachel Brice’s 8 Elements [Initiation] Program.
