    Kristalyn Gill

    Kristalyn Gill



    Kristalyn Gill, a North Carolina native, graduated from East Carolina University’s Honors College with dual degrees in Dance Performance (BFA) and Interpersonal/Organizational Communication (BS). She is a dancer, choreographer, slam poet, author, communication specialist, and educator. Above all else, she considers creativity as a conduit for an empathetic community, ignited curiosity, and earnest conversation.

    Kristalyn is currently a performing artist with Yue Yin Dance Company, SHINSA the Collective (Bo Park), and Open_Space (Franco Nieto). Her dance credits include Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Fire Island Dance Festival, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 92NY, American Dance Guild's Performance Festival, and "Before the End" directed by Bram VanderMark to name a few. 

    She has performed in original works by creators including Joseph Hernandez, Menghan Lou, Kristen Céré, Yue Yin, Theresa Stone, Mark Haim, Akira Uchida, Andrea Ward, Shaun Keylock, Hayden Frederick, and Cat Cogliandro. Additionally, Kristalyn holds immense gratitude for training under the direct leadership of artists such as Diana Matos (MOTUS the Company), Victor Quijada, Galen Hooks, Micaela Taylor, Andrea Miller, Glen Edgerton, Sidra Bell, Olivier Wevers, Cat Rendic, Jon Rua, and Candace Brown.

    Her interdisciplinary choreographic works have toured nationally at Koresh Dance Company’s Come Together Festival (Philadelphia, PA) and the Harmony Music and Dance Festival (Chicago, IL) among others. She has taught at facilities such as NW Dance Project, BodyVox, Steps PDX, Floor Dance Center, and East Carolina University.

    As a writer, Kristalyn has authored three poetry books and was the 2021 Fall Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts Poetry Fellow. Her newest collection titled THE SHAPE OF YOU was released for international distribution by Free Lines Press in June 2022 and has been celebrated for taking "shape and movement viscerally across each page in the throes of grief, trauma, and triumph of girlhood (Maya Williams)." Her poetry credits include Bowery Poetry Club, Dancegeist, Port Veritas, "While We Wait: A Tale of Fallen Fruit" by Soul Project Dance Company, and "B_TTERLAND" by SHINSA the Collective.
