Kristin Wagner is a movement enthusiast living, learning and growing in Boston, MA. Since 2012, Kristin has been performing with a number of local contemporary dance theater companies and freelance choreographers, most notably: Peter DiMuro/Public Displays of Motion and KAIROS Dance Theater, for whom she serves as Rehearsal Director and Principal Dancer. As “Decent Dance”, Kristin - with partner Tony Guglietti - creates accessible contemporary performance works that dabble in comedy, dramedy, and all things silly, sweet and true. Kristin also creates work independently and as part of “The Click,” a contemporary dance exchange comprised of Boston-based dance artists.
For three years, Kristin served as the Creative Director of the self-founded and now disbanded Lady BOS Productions, through which she supported the development and sustainability of local, independent dance and performance art through fundraising consultation, production planning and performance opportunities. She has also implemented educational programming and structural administrative systems for a number of established and influential community dance institutions, most notably The Dance Complex. In her administrative work, Kristin is motivated by the mission to make the experience of movement more financially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically accessible for students, performers, and audiences alike.
With a passion for supportive, rigorous, and eclectic dance education, Kristin has shared these philosophies and more with students ranging from youth to adult in competitive, pre-professional, and collegiate environments across Massachusetts. Kristin is a certified artist in the City of Boston, an RYT-200 yoga teacher, holds a B.A. in Hospitality Administration with a minor in dance from Boston University (2012, summa cum laude), and has been awarded support for her work as a maker and producer from the New England Foundation for the Arts, the City of Boston, the Somerville Arts Council, the Brookline Commission for the Arts, and MASS MoCA’s Assets for Artists program.
In all that she does, Kristin is guided by the belief that authentic, uncensored movement can be a pathway for personal growth, authenticity, and healing. She is fiercely femme-focused, painfully Type A, and deeply in love with her cat Lilah and her niece Jamie.
