Mrs. Kristin Villanueva
Mrs. Villanueva has been in GPISD since 2005. She has been a Director of Dance at both high school and middle school levels since 2006. As one of the original directors at GPFAA, she began working with the academy program during its pilot year at Reagan Middle School and Grand Prairie High School. Watching the success of the pilot program flourish into what Grand Prairie Fine Arts Academy has become has been an honor, she says.
Mrs. Villanueva began training for her love of dance at the age of six. She has studied many genres under some of the best master teachers in the nation. She commenced teaching and choreographing for competitive companies at sixteen years of age. Her choreography has won numerous awards at both regional and national levels.
Mrs. Villanueva married her high school sweetheart in 2003. They have two adorable sons, Zach and Xander. Both boys happily attend Garner Fine Arts Academy. Mrs. Villanueva loves GPFAA. She loves to inspire the next generation of artists by not only teaching dance technique but by also encouraging the dancers to find their own style.
