Kristina started dancing since she was 4 years old. First it was Ballroom Dancing and after training 5 times a week, frequenting competitions became a huge part of her life during the next 10 years. She has won many junior tournaments at her age category, making Kristina very noticeable on the dance floor. At the age of 14 Kristina decides to explore other dances and she takes a completely different path - street styles like Hip Hop & House. She was part of a highly rated pop-dance group in her city, again competing in various tournaments.
In 2012 she takes her first Salsa lesson in Rostov-on-Don, Russia, where she was born. And until now she is still absolutely in love with this dance. Here she found a great harmony when you feel feminine, free and natural with your movements, where you don't have to compete or impress anybody.
