Kris Olson

Kris joined the VeroFitness team in April 2023, immediately after completing her Partyfit instructor certification. Kris is no stranger to the VeroFitness community, as she has been dancing and exercising virtually with the community since its beginning in 2020. Kris loved dancing from a very young age. Despite her love of dance, Kris was told she didn’t have “the right body” for ballet. While this discouraged her from future dance training, she shifted her efforts toward athletics and music. Kris later played on Team Canada for softball and toured internationally with the Canadian Youth Orchestra.

Kris has always been drawn to the collective energy of group fitness classes and was excited to discover Partyfit in 2019. She adores the inclusive, body-positive community of folks who show up to dance, sweat, and have fun while building strength, flexibility, and stamina.

Kris is an HR Specialist with the BC Public Service by day, and in her free time, she loves to bring her passion for dance fitness to others and demonstrate that EVERYONE has a body for dance!
