Christina grew up in NJ where she began dancing at the age of 3. She loved it then and carried that love for ballet through her entire childhood and teen years. She was trained at a regional ballet school/company in NJ. She did summer programs at the School of American Ballet in NYC as well as at Claremont College in California. When she was 17 she got accepted to the University of the Arts in Philadelphia on scholarship. After receiving her BFA and the premier ballerina award for her year, she moved on to be in the first cast of dancers in the Koresh Dance Co. During that time she was also teaching and choreographing.
Christina then decided to begin her travels. She began dancing in NY with Zawaki Dance Co. and then moved to Atlantic City on and off for several years to perform at various casinos and resorts. She performed for Donald Trump’s Birthday parties for three years while in Atlantic City. She danced and lived in Biloxi, Mississippi, Oahu, Hawaii, and Reno, Nevada. She then took a turn at Cruise ships. Christina performed on Silversea Cruise line for a year then Crystal Cruises for 3 years which allowed her to step foot on every continent. Las Vegas was the next stop. She spent seven years as a magician’s assistant for Rick Thomas and a showgirl on the strip. After getting married and having her first baby she decided to move to Celebration, Florida where she resides with her husband and two children. Christina performs with Metropolis Entertainment and has taught at several studios including the Russian Academy of Ballet in Orlando, Performing Arts Conservatory in Ocala and currently at In Motion Dance Project in Orlando. She is very excited to begin this new venture of private lessons, classes for home schooled children and summer dance camps here in Celebration with your children.
