    Biography:

    Kristalyn Gill, a North Carolina native, graduated from East Carolina University’s Honors College on full academic scholarship with dual degrees in Dance Performance (BFA) and Interpersonal/Organizational Communication (BS). She is a professional dancer, slam poet, published author, choreographer, communication specialist, and educator.

    Upon graduation, Kristalyn joined Shaun Keylock Company and 11:Dance Company in Portland, OR. There, she also created and nationally toured her own choreographic work, which was featured in Koresh Dance Company’s 2018 Come Together Festival in Philadelphia, PA.

    As a dancer, Kristalyn has performed in original works by Yin Yue, Menghan Lou, Joseph Hernandez, Kaloyan Boyadjiev, Kristen Céré, Mark Haim, Franco Nieto, Andrea Ward, Sarah Richman, and Shaun Keylock. Additionally, she has trained with Victor Quijada, Diana Matos, Galen Hooks, Micaela Taylor, Sarah Slipper, Glen Edgerton, Andrea Miller, Yin Yue, Sidra Bell, Bo Park, Hélène Blackburn, Olivier Wevers, Lillian Barbeito, Cat Rendic, Theresa Stone, Caetlyn Watson, and Candace Brown.

    In 2019, Kristalyn moved to New York City where she is currently a company artist with Yin Yue Dance Company (Yin Yue), SHINSA the Collective (Bo Park), cloude.nyc (Emily Greenwell), Channel:Dig (Sarah Richman), and Open_Space (Franco Nieto). She is also grateful to have worked with creators such as Andrea Ward, Hayden Frederick, Cat Cogliandro, Alex Mitchell, and Ellen Sickenberger.

    Kristalyn’s published poetry books include "she was familiar with wars" and "The Breakup Club: A Collection of Mishaps and Falling Aparts." She was honored to be the 2021 Fall Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts Poetry Fellow. Her newest poetry collection, "The Shape of You," will be released for international distribution in June 2022 by Free Lines Press.
