Christine began dancing at the age of 4 at a small dance school which ran by the CSTD syllabus. There, she was exposed to ballet, jazz and tap exams. Once she reached high-school, she became heavily involved in her high-school dance program. Through this program she was given many opportunities to perform. Following this love of dance, she was a member of the school’s Rock Eisteddfod team in 2012. Her first experience in creating a dance number was during her VCE studies where she had to perform two solo performances.
Christine joined Flare in 2013, her third year of University, excited to push herself to choreograph a contemporary group number for the production. This very crazy decision proved to be very stressful and overwhelming, but ultimately, extremely rewarding. Not only did she get support from Flare, she developed many friendships with others who share her passion. Due to these friendships, Christine choreographed again in 2014, experimenting with a lively Jazz number instead.
When teaching, Christine is always inspired by the dancers who take her class, truly believing that training and technique may shape a good dancer, but it is commitment and passion that shape a great performer. As a member of the committee in 2017, Christine hopes to help Flare grow to be able to reach and inspire more dancers.
