Welcome to The Dancing Curtain®! I am SO glad you are here!!!
Welcome, Lovelies! My name is Khristee Rich and I am The Dancing Queen™. I started this business from a place of joy and my business has evolved to places I could never have dreamed of. With my background as an actress, writer, standup comedienne, Reiki Practitioner, big world traveler, and entrepreneur, I have grown in unimaginable ways.
You wouldn’t think that an introvert would become an actress or a standup comedienne or a bustling entrepreneur who does public speaking and Facebook Lives, but it’s true, I am an INFJ and proud to say that I overcame my debilitating shyness and became an outgoing introvert. Today I LOVE being in the spotlight. Being onstage and at the beach are where I am happiest. This may be where most people feel naked/exposed, but this is where I SHINE.
I coach ambitious, introverted, creative entrepreneurs to break out of their shells, to trust their intuitions, and make a huge impact on the world by living a life beyond their amazing dreams.
What is your dream?
My mission is to spread joy, to empower women,
and to encourage everyone to live a life beyond their wildest dreams.
My background is as a professional actress, writer, standup comedienne, and Reiki Practitioner.
Growing up I was incredibly shy. In truth, I never spoke in school; I was terribly self-conscious. Yearning to fit in and to be liked I enrolled in an acting workshop with a girl who I wished to befriend. My new friend was a jock and only stayed for the duration of the workshop (a couple of months), but once I got onstage I was reborn. I found my calling! No longer was I scared, shy Khristee! I was whoever I wanted to be! I was FREE!
Through acting, I found my self-expression, creativity, and self-confidence and broke out of my shell.
In college, I became a BFA theatre performance major. I studied acting at the British American Drama Academy in London, England and later performed onstage in New York City, London, San Francisco and Los Angeles, CA.
After college, I attended Mary Dimino’s standup comedy class and then began performing standup in New York City, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, CA.
Once I moved to Los Angeles, I created my own monthly variety show at Second City Hollywood called Khristee’s Fresh Squeezed Comedy Show. It was well-received!
For about fourteen years, I have been a Reiki Practitioner. I studied with a Russian shaman and a Reiki Master and perform a unique Reiki/shamanism blend. Since I have been practicing it for so long, my energy is very strong. From the beginning my specialty has been helping those with chronic illness, chronic pain, and those who have tried everything to no avail until they met me.
Today I help my clients to overcome their blocks, fears and to live a life beyond their wildest dreams. Not only do I see and feel energy, (I am an empath, clairvoyant, and intuitive) but I can see into your childhood and sometimes into past lives too. I receive messages from spirits, angels, and loved ones who have passed on. I receive many messages (visual and auditory) which guide me to advise you, inspire and enlighten you. At the end, I give you helpful action steps so that you can overcome your habitual patterns, improve your mindset, and transform. (My messages are channeled. It is recommended to take notes or ask for a recording.)

From the time I was a little girl, I had dreams of becoming a famous actress. As a young girl, I was incredibly shy but when I was onstage it was clear to all that that was my calling; I could transform into any character so believably. I felt bigger than life onstage. I could express myself. I was happy and free.
However, during my junior year of college in London, England, I suddenly became very ill and developed a debilitating, unexplainable illness. Unfortunately, my illness was misdiagnosed for fifteen years and my doctors gave up on trying to help me, labeling me as depressed, stressed, and a hypochondriac which thankfully lead me to seek alternative health and wellness to help me.
During that time I discovered many alternative healing modalities such as Reiki. I researched alternative health and wellness extensively. I learned how the human body works, how helpful vitamins, supplements, and herbs are for optimal health, and how our minds can create anything we desire.
Finally after fifteen years of chronic illness, a specialist properly diagnosed me. I had extremely high levels of heavy metal toxicity in my blood. The levels were the highest my doctors had ever seen of mercury and lead. I was told it would take a full year of chelation therapy, but at the time I didn’t have health insurance and chelation therapy was costly, painful, and could be deadly, so I declined and decided to heal myself in one month.
With a clear diagnosis, I had a clear direction. Through my research, I discovered natural food and supplements that removed the heavy metals without symptoms. I took them daily. I meditated twice a day for 20 minutes daily. I went for daily walks short walks, and told myself every day that in one month I would be well. I believed it with my full heart. At the end of the month, my blood levels were tested and the heavy metals were completely removed. My health was restored!
With my renewed health, I moved to California to live a life of fun and adventure and pursued my writing, standup comedy, modeling, and acting. I was so thrilled to have my life back again and to be happier and healthier than ever before. I was living a life beyond my wildest dreams!
Since I started to share my inspiring health story, I realized that I am a storyteller. Now, in my free time, I write plays, children’s stories, and articles for magazines based on inspirational personal stories from my life.
Today I am a clairvoyant/intuitive. I am a healer. I am a storyteller. I am a coach. I am a cheerleader.
For my clients, I boost their confidence gently with my special Reiki/Shamanism blend which includes intuitive coaching. When my clients are ready to break out of their shells and make a bigger impact, I help them to create engaging online videos to showcase their passions and talents to the world.
My focus is helping women who are shy, intuitive, empathetic business owners who yearn to feel more free in their business and in their lives instead of paralyzed by their fears, disappointments, and regrets.
It’s time for you to step out from behind the curtain and let your business shine!
Are you ready to shine? Are you ready to become an outgoing introvert? Let me help you to feel free and joyful too!
