Cristina has had the pleasure to work with guest artists such as Trebien Pollard of Pilobolus, Christal Brown of Urban Bush Women, Jon Rodriguez director of the Dayton Ohio Ballet, Coco Loupe of Coco Loupe Dance, Karola Luttringhaus of Alban Elved Dance Company, Danial Shapiro and Joanie Smith of Shapiro and Smith Dance Company, and many more.
Cristina performed professionally with Caroline Calouche & Co. as well as with Martha Connerton/Kinetic Works Dance Company from 2007-2009. She has performed in many different venues and concerts and has been a featured dancer of Opera Carolina's Romeo & Juliet and Aida. In between performances, Cristina was a Teaching Artist for the Charlotte Dance Festival and Martha Connerton/Kinetic Works spreading dance to children ages 2-18 years old. In 2014, Cristina was invited to join the Hot Foot Honeys, the first and only professional tap company in Memphis, TN. She performed in their 2015 & 2017 Spring Concert.
After getting married in 2009, Mrs. Cristina moved back to her home town, Southaven, MS, and taught various dance classes ranging from ballet, tap, modern/contemporary, jazz, hiphop, and competitive pom. With a vision to bring a higher level of dance to DeSoto County, Mrs. Cristina opened CK Dance Theatre in the summer of 2013. Since then CK has grown immensely!
