Illustrious Alumni


Kristi Grachen

(14 year student)

Our recent 2001 Plum High School graduate is living on the wild side. Kristi was offered a position from Walt Disney World Entertainment last April but due to previous commitments to the Maryen Lorrain Dance Studio had to tell them , NO. Kindly, the folks at Disney Casting respected her integrity and called again in July to hire Kristi to perform in the “Tarzan Rocks” Show at The Animal Kingdom! Kristi is making the most of her own apartment complete with pool, sauna, work out room, etc. She has also made a great connection though some of our other alumni, working on three industrials this month. On her days off she has traveled to Tampa, Sacramento and Dallas to perform!

Update: After 911, many Disney Dancers were cut, but not Kristi! She was offered another contract to continue in “Tarzan Rocks” Show at The Animal Kingdom! She loves working for Mickey Mouse, loves performing every day and loves her new two bedroom condo! Disney keeps Kristi busy on her days off – she does industrial shows for Beuna Vista Conventions!

Update: Miss Grachen called on Saturday, May 10th with great news… she will be joining Rachel and Ira in Tokyo to work for TokyoDisneyland! Her contract is even better – 10 months (that’s like $48,000) Kristi is doing well with her Education from The Maryen Lorrain Dance Studio!

Update: This busy dancer stopped home just long enough to do some laundry. She is back in Orlando and back at her Job in the Mouse House.
