Krysten has cultivated a passion for contra dancing for the past eight years, and in the past two years has dived into teaching and calling contra dances. A recent transplant to Colorado, she comes from mid-coast Maine, bringing with her a distinct enthusiasm and joy for calling and dancing alike. Her favorite part of calling is getting to see a whole room of dancers fall into joyful synchronicity, when the dance seems to dance itself. She tries to always bring a balance of new and interesting figures and comfortable flow, so that dancers new and experienced alike are having fun! When she's not on the dance floor or behind the mic, she's usually on the farm, in the garden, or somewhere deep in the back country.
