Tumbling Instructor

Kristen Kane has been training in competitive gymnastics and tumbling since she was only six years old. She performed in competitive gymnastics through level 8, and has coached gymnastics since 1998 at several Iowa and Des Moines area gymnastics academies. Kristen also understands how gymnastics can add and build skills for dance; she has more than six years of experience as coordinator of tumbling and gymnastics for a dance studio program as well. Kristen is a graduate of William Penn University, where she majored in business management. As a mom, she understands the importance of teaching kids the right way, in a supportive, compassionate, and encouraging program. As a business process specialist, Kristen works to implement and expand improvements in procedures and protocol in a company. She is also just as excited for the opportunity to continue working to expand and improve the gymnastics and tumbling skills of all her students here at Ankeny Dance & Performing Arts Academy, and she loves to bring smiles to the faces of her students as they achieve and grow!
