Our Staff

Kristin Johnson (Owner) -- Kristin began Jewelry Box Dancer in 2008. She has a degree in dance from UWEC, over 30 years of dance training including two years of performing for Minnesota's Junior Miss Title and three years of high school coaching. Kristin's best training, however, has been as being a mom. Being a mom helps Kristin to recognize your child's inner spirit and help them love themselves as they are; while also recognizing that as a parent you need to have shorter time commitments, affordable classes, and costumes.

Becky coached the Elk Mound High School Dance Team for three years, helped with the Elk Mound Dance Clinic and is also a 3rd Grade teacher for the Elk Mound School District.


Amber Fox -- Amber started dancing in second grade and hasn't stopped since! She is trained in ballet, pointe, tap, and most recently hip hop.
