Hi Friends! Welcome!

My name’s Kristin. I’m a Quebec artist, writer, and storyteller living with cerebral palsy.

I want to build a space where people can come together, create, learn, produce, and share their stories on and off the stage. And at the same time, help promote disability awareness in an inclusive environment.

The Awkward Ballerina

“The Awkward Ballerina” is a true story about growing up with cerebral palsy and wanting to become a ballet dancer but ultimately having to reimagine that dream.

Kristin revisits memories of her childhood and adolescence in her solo play about overcoming obstacles, facing fears, and reinventing dreams. From childhood bullies, high school crushes, her first singing audition, and soccer game, she navigates through her past and present, sharing her experiences, and challenges growing up with a disability.

“Incredibly gifted storyteller. A fantastic show. It’ll leave you tearing up and then crying with laughter.”

– Cat Preston

"She is inspiring and motivational in describing her perseverant pursuit of her dreams, all the while remaining honest and vulnerable about the unique trials she has overcome.”

– Ishini Fernando, Inspirations News

“Kristin Govers delivers such a vulnerable and courageous performance.”

– Erin Farmer Perrine

“The Awkward Ballerina” is a beautiful, moving theatrical experience. As someone with cerebral palsy, I found myself hanging on Kristin’s every word-reliving the pains, joys, sorrows, and triumphs of growing up with a disability. I wanted to laugh and cry all at once!”

– Michael Murray

"With her medical condition, a career in professional dancing was not in the cards. But Govers has found a different — and better — purpose on the stage.”

– Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel
