Kristen Hockley

Kristen has loved to dance since she put on her first pair of ballet shoes at the age of four. She started in Year 7 at The McDonald College and during these six years was a member of the ballet and dance streams. Kristen then discovered a love of musical theatre, teaching and choreography and has since turned that passion into her career.

Kristen is currently the Dance Development Officer for Sports Tots, a program she has developed, providing dance education to early childhood centres. Along with this, she is a trained READY SET DANCE and READY SET BALLET teacher and assistant choreographer for City Kids Theatre. Kristen has choreographed Miranda Musical Society’s Beautiful, The Carole King Musical and Engadine Musical Society’s Jersey Boys. She is furthering her teaching qualifications by studying a Certificate IV in Dance Teaching and Management.

Kristen’s performance credits include featured dancer roles in Priscilla to Moulin Rouge, Folies Bergere and Grease Fever with Davin Griffith-Jones Productions. Other highlights include roles in Beauty and the Beast, High School Musical, Aladdin and Lion King with City Kids Theatre, Footloose with Loud Theatre Company and Wizard of Oz with Spot on Productions.

Kristen loves engaging with the students of The McDonald College and is thrilled to be a part of the teaching faculty.
