She assisted choreographer Richard Jackson for several projects including artists Priyanko Chopra, Will I Am, JoJo and Matisse. Christina has also been assistant choreographer on countless TV shows such as ABC’s Castle, MTV’s ABDC, ABC’s Cristella, NBC’S THE SING OFF, award shows, commercials, and Disney Channel.

Christina has a passion for teaching and spreading her knowledge of the entertainment industry and “What it Takes” to maintain a successful career. She feels passionate about bringing back what it “really” means to dance, the benefits knowing the history of dance brings, and what “true” performing as an individual entails. After working with Christina, you will be left with a better understanding of performing with individuality and confidence. She conveys this not only through teaching but through working as a judge at competitions as well.

Christina looks forward to spreading her knowledge of the entertainment industry to both the existing and upcoming generations!
