Christy Gilbert began dancing at the age of three and has loved every minute of her constantly evolving career.

She has been granted opportunities to dance and study with many great artists, which include Laura Young, Suki Schorer, Tatiana Gennadievna, and Mikhail Baryshnikov. After dancing and performing for a decade with Boston Ballet, Christy changed paths to attend college, however, quickly found herself using her ballet expertise to teach technique classes for Springfield college and local competitive studios. Since 1999, Christy has taught students of all ages and levels in California and Massachusetts. She feels deeply about sharing her years of knowledge and experience with her students.
