Hi! I’m Kristen Vierthaler, owner and primary instructor of First Dance AK. I started dancing at age 4 studying Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Broadway and Ballroom dance. I danced professionally in New York, Las Vegas, Seattle, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and on cruise ships. I’ve taught dance in Alaska for over 18 years (including at UAA)and choreographed upwards of 75 different performances and events including weddings. I love to teach and find that working with beginners is incredibly rewarding and enjoyable. It amazes me to see you uncover skills and talents you never knew you had and watch those abilities bloom over the course of our time together.
I can’t wait to dance with you and assist you in uncovering your hidden dance talent as you perform the Wedding Dance you’ve always wanted to do. It may be a classy swirl around the floor or something packing a bit more punch but whatever the style you’d like to see we can help you get there.
