A Bay Area native, Christina stepped into her first ballet class at age 6. She studied classical ballet for 12 years, and received her most rigorous training at Professional Ballet School in Belmont, CA under the direction of Zoltan and Carmella Peter. Christina enjoyed performing with Peninsula Ballet Theatre, Young Artists Ballet Theatre, and Western Ballet, where she had the opportunity to work with choreographers including Carlos Carvajal, Michael Lowe, Brete Martin, and Tanya Bello. Upon accepting the Dance Scholarship to Saint Mary's College of CA, Christina went on to earn a degree in Performing Arts, Dance. As a member of the SMC Dance Company, she explored modern/contemporary styles of dance, choreography methods, and production development.

With over a decade of experience working with children, Christina is thrilled to join the Ace family this year. She hopes that by sharing her passion for dance with emerging young artists, she'll nurture their love for dance as they continue to learn and flourish.

To dance is to be out of yourself.
Larger, more beautiful, more powerful.
