Ms. Crystal Joy

Crystal J. Draper, Founder and President of Purpose Performing Arts Foundation is originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, and began her studies in dance at the young age of two at the Anneliese Von Ottengin School of Ballet (AVO), one of the first European ballet schools formed in the Midwest. She graduated high school as a dance major from the School for Creative and Performing Arts in 1999 and went on to attain her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Dance Performance from Shenandoah University and Conservatory in Winchester, Virginia. After College, Ms. Crystal moved to Florida and she began Kinetic Expressions Dance Academy (KEDA) in Daytona Beach where she has been teaching and directing for the past 17 years. Ms. Crystal performed professionally and internationally with the Surfscape Contemporary Dance theater from 2015- 2018 as a principle dancer, and she's been the Artistic director and choreographer for the Expressions Company, a children’s production company producing over 50 main stage productions from 2004 to present. Ms. Crystals heart is the community and giving back through her passion in the arts. She has been performing in the community with KEDA for 17 years and would like Purpose to provide even more opportunities to be a part of enriching this area. Ms. Crystal created Purpose Performing Arts Foundation to bring the community together through the arts and provide an environment for all students and teachers to thrive, express their art, and give back to the community.
