Kristi Johnson, a member of the 2016 EdD in Kinesiology cohort, recently led her non-profit organization, the Triangle Dance Project to successful performance. The Triangle Dance Project, a community building nonprofit arts organization, offers local choreographers and performers opportunities showcase their talents as they emerge onto the regional dance scene. Byron Woods, an award winning theater and dance critic, wrote a laudatory review of the recent local professional premiere by the Triangle Dance Project.

Kristi is not just the founder of the Triangle Dance Project, but she herself has been performing, choreographing, and teaching dance for over 20 years. Kristi is presently the Director of Dance at North Carolina Central University. She brings a wealth of experience after serving on the dance faculties of Louisiana State University, Texas Christian University, Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, and Jacksonville University. Committed to teaching excellence, she was named the AAHPERD College/University Dance Educator of the Year in 2013.

We look forward to hearing about future accomplishments of The Triangle Dance Project.
