Owner/ Dance Instructor
Hey everyone! My Name is Mrs. Christina, and I have been dancing my whole life. I participated in dance classes growing up and was heavily involved in the fine arts throughout my youth and college years. I began teaching dance in a group fitness setting in 2010 and, shortly thereafter, with children. I currently teach toddlers, combo, and little bops. My career originally began as an elementary school teacher. I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Brigham Young University in Idaho in 2005. I love fusing my passion for dance and education on the dance floor!
I am so grateful to be able to share the art of dance with so many children in our community. As the owner of Studio C, I have witnessed hundreds of kids flourish in our program. The skills learned on the dance floor have proven to be beneficial on a daily basis with our students.
On a Personal Note:
I love life with my husband and 4 children. We live on a 100-acre ranch in the middle of nowhere. We have more animals than we can count and enjoy watching our kiddos rodeo when they are not dancing.

Students with excessive absences will not be permitted to perform in our annual recital.
Are parents allowed to stay in class to watch?
“WATCH DAYS” will be the first full week in November and April. This is the lesson parents and visitors are welcome to view in class. Remember, this is your day to see your child’s progress.
Please do not disturb the class by visiting amongst yourselves. Turn the ringer on the phone down. Please keep your little ones seated and quiet. In other lessons, parents are asked to walk their child inside the building and then wait in the waiting room, run a quick errand, or treat themselves to a walk around the block! This enables the dance instructors to keep the attention of the students, as well as helps those who may be a little reluctant to feel more at ease.
