The Breakthrough with Kristina Knapp
Updated: Nov 3
I’m so excited to have my friend and coach, Kristina Knapp, back on the show. In last week’s episode, I mentioned my new show, 'The Breakthrough,' which premieres on October 30th. Kristina is featured in the pilot episode. Today, I connect with Kristina, and we discuss the show, her experience, and her breakthroughs.
Kristina is very confident. However, being confident enough to learn and present a dance performance was a challenge she chose to work through. We talk about the challenges that arise from last-minute changes. We also share some behind-the-scenes experiences and discuss what having a true breakthrough feels like.
[02:21] We talk about why Kristina said yes to being on the show.
[04:30] Kristina always wanted to sing and dance. She loves watching dance videos. Dancing is cool. She wanted that confidence that was connected to her body.
[07:10] Kristina is confident in most aspects of her life. She struggled with serious performance.
[09:21] Kristina was going to learn salsa and give a performance. The instructor/partner canceled at the very last minute.
[11:29] We learn how Kristina felt when her dance was changed from Salsa to Hip Hop, and her male instructor is now a female.
[14:00] Did I want to hide or really show up as my highest self and go for it? Kristina wanted it to be the best day of her life.
[15:17] Kristina had to learn a dance in 45 minutes.
[16:01] Kristina shares her reaction when she met her new dance instructor.
[17:35] There were hundreds of people and a few surprises thrown in.
[18:42] This was a very challenging opportunity for her to stay in her power.
[19:07] After she was done, it was no big deal. Which is an accurate description of how it feels after you face your fears.
[19:20] Fear is now a green flag for Kristina.
[20:01] She's now being pitched for a show. She's writing a book, and launching a podcast. Feeling the fear means you better go for it.
[22:26] She also discovered a huge appreciation for her body.
