Broadway star, voice of Belle in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast
"I love this book! A highlight of my career was performing with the Rockettes! I was constantly amazed and awed by their total perfection!! They made me improve my performance out of sheer admiration. No one has ever captured that drive, with all of the behind-the-scenes humor and angst, like Kristi Davis. Her story shows the heartfelt and funny life journey of a dancer. I laughed and I cried and I couldn’t put it down. A must read!!!"
Former Stage Manager, Las Vegas Radio City Rockettes
"WOW can you write! [The book] is fascinating and delightful and relatable and inspiring and surprising...and you have some wonderful little quotes about rehearsing and classes and passion and commitment that I hope every dancer/actor reads. I am truly jealous of your natural ability to put words and mental pictures together and bring your reader into the story. Thank you for sharing this true work of love with me. I always loved a woman who can kick, smile, bevel, and write. "

"High kicks of praise for this behind-the-scenes memoir by the star who inspired me to follow my dreams! A page turner from beginning to end. A must-read for anyone with show business aspirations or a dancing career in the making, as well as those curious about the life of a professional entertainer. I didn’t want it to end."
Hello, fellow friends of sequins and sparkle, feathers and fishnets!
I am the voice (and the legs) behind the book Long Legs and Tall Tales. Why did I write it? Having spent over 12 years strutting my stuff as a professional performer, I was bursting with secrets and shenanigans to spill. Mainly, I was so amused and amazed by my showbiz adventures, I simply had to share them. Let’s be honest…it also broke my heart to retire, and writing my memoir was highly therapeutic!
These days, I thrive in the beautiful state of Michigan with my wacky, sexy husband and two spectacular children. In addition to being an author and entertainer, I am a speaker, choreographer, and Registered Drama Therapist. Please visit me at kristilynndavis.com for the not-so-dirty details or just to say hi.
Thanks a bunch for stopping by. I hope you get as much of a kick out of reading my Tall Tales as I did living them. And may you be inspired to discover your dreams, dance with fear, and become the star you truly are.
Kick high! Be spectacular!
