Khrystia St. Lucia Co FounderKhrystia St. Lucia

Known for her grace and fluidity, Khrystia has performed on the floors of over forty venues across Arizona. She started as a swing dancer performing for the local band The Swingtips. She later moved her focus to belly dancing, becoming a master of mixing fluidity with articulated hip motions. During this time she fine-tuned her style by studying Hula and Tahitian dance with Kaimikahu Hale O’ Hula of Tempe, Arizona, whom she performed and competed with for eight years. Over the course of her multi-cultural dances, including Bollywood, Khrystia has performed over 1800 shows. She presently performs belly dance and Bollywood dance at Tandoori Times Indian Bistro.

seven years ago Khrystia moved into the air by learning aerial acrobatics. She is predominantly trained through Circus School of Arizona, in addition to Frequent Flyers of Boulder Colorado, and Elsie Smith of New England Center for Circus Arts. She regularly performs aerial acrobatics at numerous venues and corporate events throughout the Southwest. Khrystia’s apparatuses  include aerial silks, sling/hammock, rope, trapeze, and lyra.  An entertainer at heart, she enjoys sharing  knowledge of aerial by teaching regularly.
