Kristen Gillette, originally from Allentown, PA, came to Philadelphia to study journalism at Temple University and stayed because of the wide variety of arts located in the city. Kristen has written for a wide variety of publications, including Philly2Night.com, two.one.five. Magazine, and Cred Magazine, working to expand her knowledge of music and the arts. Other publications she’s written for include Technically Philly and MetroKids Magazine.
She looks to learn more about arts criticism and writing, driven by her new passion for dance. After taking dance lessons as a child, Kristen returned to ballet as an adult by taking a wide variety of classes offered throughout the city of Philadelphia. She blogs about her experience at Adultballerinaproject.com.
