Hi, I’m Christina. 

Most days you can find me in the dance studio or at church.

It is my purpose in life to serve the community and the world through teaching dance, leading worship, and speaking engagements. I aim to live by, “Take the seed you have been given and sow it.” 

I am proud to teach our students from my experiences as a professional for Norwegian Cruise Line, Crystal Cruises, the Siegfried & Roy Show in Las Vegas, and 20 years as owner and director of Christina’s Dance World. With this, our production shows move beyond a stereotypical dance recital setting, and offer an experience of professional shows. Christina’s Dance World performs at the Ritz Theatre, Disney Springs, and local events and community centers. In the past we have provided entertainment at Epcot Center, the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and The Cloister at Sea Island.

 

Meet our Teachers!

Ellie Moser – Classical Ballet and Lyrical Teacher

2015-Today Ballet Teacher at Christina’s Dance World

2004-2007 Ballet Major at Friends University in Wichita, Kansas

1992-2004 Student at Edye Cook’s School of Dance in Marion, Ohio

 

 

Hi, I’m Ellie. 

I began dancing at the age of 7 at Edye Cook’s School of Dance in Marion, Ohio. While there, I trained in ballet, tap, jazz, and partnering, and assisted teaching tap and jazz classes. As a company member, I had the privilege of learning choreography from Jeff Shade and Thommie Walsh.

After graduating high school, I attended Friends University to study ballet for 3 years under Stan Rogers and Sharon Rogers. My training included learning numerous classical works and variations, music theory, choreographing, and performing original works by Stan Rogers, Shawn Stevens, and fellow students.

I love ballet because of its artistry, discipline, and storytelling, but I teach ballet to build confidence in my students. When I teach, I want all my students to know they are strong and can accomplish the seemingly impossible. 

When I’m not at the studio, I spend time with my husband, two sons, and two cats. As a family we love to read, visit the library, build LEGO creations, bowl, watch movies, and be silly!

Heather Clark-Classical Ballet and Lyrical Teacher

2016- Today Classical Ballet/Lyrical/Ballet Fitness Teacher at Christina’s Dance World

1994-1997 Studied with The Ballet School of Chapel Hill

1994-1997 Three summer workshops with Ballet Magnificat!

Hi, I’m Heather. 

I started dancing at the age of five in my hometown of Danville, VA in ballet and jazz. By the age of ten, I was living in NC where I trained with John Walker of Walkerdance and performed various roles in The Nutcracker for three years.

My passion for ballet grew around age 13 while dancing under the instruction of M’liss Dorrance, Katie Wakeford, Diane Eilber, and Jennifer Potts at The Ballet School of Chapel Hill in Chapel Hill, NC.

I participated in Summer Intensive programs at The Virginia School of the Arts in Lynchburg, VA and Ballet Magnificat in Jackson, MS under Kathy Thibodeau and Jiri Voborsky. I was an original member of Rejoice Dance Ministries from 1993-1997 and a member of The Chapel Hill Ballet Company 1996-1997.

After graduating high school, I joined Youth With a Mission in Tyler, TX as a missionary through the Arts. During this time I traveled to different countries showing God’s love through dance. Because of this training I am able to teach the discipline of ballet and the understanding of worship through dance and movement.

When I am not in the studio, I volunteer at Skylark, but most of my leisure time is spent with my husband, our three children, and our Bernese Mountain dog. This house of introverts loves to watch movies, read, and laugh together.
