Adagio Dance Studio
Hi I'm Christina, and I'm a personal dance coach!
I have been teaching dance and choreography for 20+ years! I started dancing at 2, and at 14 I began my own dance company which consisted of 4 girls. The company grew and eventually a studio and traveling stage play was birthed. After 15 years, I decided to retire from the company and train dancers 1 on 1.
I have a 100% success rate, as all students who have followed my personalized dance plan, as well as committed to training under me, have made it into major performing arts programs, high schools, and colleges. Many of my former students now dance professionally.
I recommend a personal dance coach for individuals seeking to take their dancing to a professional level. I recommend a personal dance coach for individuals seeking private sessions. I recommend a personal dance coach for individuals and groups needing choreography. Whatever your dance goal, I will cater to you, and together we will accomplish it!
