My Story

My name is Kristin Howard and I am currently a second year student at Indiana University majoring in ballet from the Jacobs School of Music with an outside field in business. I began dancing when I was 3 years old, joining Capitol Ballet Center at age 8 and continuing my training there until I graduated from Granite Bay High School in 2014. At IU, I have gotten the opportunity to expand my education, performing in numerous Balanchine ballet’s including Concerto Barocco, Elegie, Swan Lake, Serenade, and of course The Nutcracker. The 10 years I spent training from Mr. Carroll and Ms. Newton were nothing but amazing; they gave me so much as a dancer and I can’t thank them enough for their continued support, inspiration, and helping me get to where I am today.
