started dance at the young age of 3, and her passion for dancing became an ultimate career goal. For many years, Cristina took classes at various studios and conventions, ultimately falling in love with tap dancing. After high school, Cristina continued her dance education and in 2007, she received her BFA with Honors in Dance Performance and Choreography with an emphasis in Ballet & Modern, a Minor in Business Administration from the University of Southern Mississippi. She also holds an Elementary Certification in Labanotation from the Dance Notation Bureau in NY. Cristina has had the pleasure of working with professional dance companies like Pilobolus, Urban Bush Women, Dayton Ohio Ballet, Caroline Calouche & Co. and many more. After getting married in 2009, Cristina decided to move back to her hometown, Southaven, MS. With the vision of bringing a higher level of dance education to DeSoto County, she opened CK Dance Theatre, a Christian-Based dance & gymnastic studio located in Olive Branch, MS. Cristina is very excited to be performing again, especially with the Hot Foot Honeys who specialize in tap, Cristina’s first passion in dance.
