Some of the most impressive names in dance have started young, and Kristin Clark, age 13, is no exception. Kristin has been dancing since she was only five years old, and has received numerous awards. She has danced on award-winning teams at both Carla’s Dance Factory and Dance Makers of Atlanta, and has attended intensives under some of the world’s most esteemed dancers, including Debbie Allen, Chloe Arnold, Taja Riley, Twitch, Travis Wall, and Andrew Winghart. She’s also personally choreographed two numbers, which other students performed as auditions. Most recently, Kristin was chosen to participate in Debbie Allen’s Summer Intensive Dance Program in Los Angeles.
Kristin, whose grandparents live in Fayette County, attends M.D. Roberts Magnet School, where she runs track and is a member of the National Honor Society for Dance Arts. She’s also very active in her Fayette County church.

In addition to dancing and running track, Kristin loves to act. She plans to attend college at UGA and to become an orthodontist, but has big dreams of spending all her spare time traveling with her family.
