Sisters Kristen and Kelly Munro grew up in Brantford and both currently live in downtown Toronto, Ontario. As if overnight, Kristen had a vision of a dance competition that not only recognized the winning competitors but also celebrated the effort and progress of all of those participating in a fun, encouraging and professional environment. After sharing her ideas with Kelly, without hesitation, they began forming Simply The Best! Dance Competition.
Kristen is a professionally trained dancer, actor and singer. She is a graduate of the Randolph Academy for the Performing Arts. Since the age of seven, she has been an active part of the competitive dance world, as a competitor for twelve years and also as an adjudicator. Dancing has taken Kristen across Canada, the U.S. and Europe; her experience includes a variety of live performances, as well as TV and film. She has danced for the Toronto Raptors Dance Pak (Maple Leaf Sports &Entertainment) and has toured the Mediterranean, Scandinavia and the Caribbean as a dancer on Celebrity Cruise Lines. Kristen was dance captain and understudy to Dee Dee on “The Doodlebops Live! – Together Forever Tour,” which travelled across Canada. She can also be seen in feature films such as “Hairspray” starring John Travolta, as a member of the Ta Da show choir in “Spectacular!” (Alloy Productions), and in “Amelia” starring Hilary Swank. You may also recognize Kristen from several TV commercials throughout the last decade.
Kelly has 10 years of dance background and a fantastic understanding of the competitive dance industry. Her professional path has led her into business management, where she excels at guiding and inspiring teams of people, planning and executing major events and actively participating in charity event planning. With over 15 years of customer service and management experience, Kelly will ensure that your expectations will be met – and surpassed.
Together with our passion for dance and years of exposure to the competitive world, we have culminated into an outstanding partnership. Between Kristen’s extensive hands-on experience and Kelly’s sharp business acumen, we are very excited to present Simply The Best! Dance Competition.
