My name is Krista Pearson and I am in my 15th year teaching dance at both the secondary and postsecondary level. I currently teach beginning, intermediate, advanced and company. I was born and raised in Phoenix Az! I grew up dancing competitively and performing at various venues including Disneyland, Disney World, Costa Rica, Bahamas, and Premier and Celebration Cruise Line.

I received by AAFA from Chandler-Gilbert Community College. I went ASU and received my BA in Dance Education and then to Grand Canyon University for my Masters in Educational Leadership. I began teaching in Higley in 2008 and was in the district for 3 years before moving on to Chandler- Gilbert Community College. There, I taught tap, jazz, ballet and their company. I was there 9 years before returning to Higley in 2018. I also teach at a local dance studio.

I love being a Higley knight and sharing my love of dance education. When I'm not teaching, I'm spending time with my husband, two girls and two dogs. I also love to travel, snowboard, watch movies and bake.
