Krista Duncan started off as a competitive gymnast but when she took her first dance class at the age of 13 she knew this was where she belonged. She started training more seriously and upon graduating high school, she made the move to the big city to attend George Brown College’s dance program, where she broaden her knowledge in jazz, ballet, pointe, lyrical/contemporary, modern, acrobatics and hip-hop.
Krista soon after got the opportunity to perform at the 2008 Grey Cup and Casino Rama’s Superbowl party. Some other performance credits include Canadian Children’s Aid Foundation Gala, The Chocolate Ball Fundraiser and Hennessy’s Black Seduction promotional party. Krista has worked with Much Music choreographing and dancing in the Doritos “Name the flavour” award show, Shawn Desman’s “Night Like This” music video and the Toronto Marlies Dance Pak.
Being apart of LRD has given Krista wonderful support as a dancer, choreographer, and teacher. She has performed in many LR Production shows like Woman in Dance, MuchMusic Best Dance Crew, The Bazaar, and Dance Ontario.
