Chrissy Rubino has been dancing since the age of three and is excited to further her dance career by teaching and inspiring the youth of dance. Chrissy grew up competing on Stage Door Dance Academy’s performance company in the southwest suburbs of Chicago; training in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, hip-hop, and contemporary. Chrissy graduated from the University of Illinois in 2011 with a major in communication studies. She competed nationally with the Illini Dance Team placing in the top 10 in the nation. She was also part of Dance 2XS hip-hop company. Chrissy has trained and assisted extensively with Tremaine Dance Conventions; she traveled across the nation with the dance company under the direction of Joe Tremaine and Desiree Robbins. Chrissy has also performed at the Carnival Choreographers Ball in L.A. at the Key Club under Kerri and Paula, and has performed multiple times in the Chicago Choreographers Ball. Chrissy was an extra dancer for the music video “Baby Get Down” by Tomi, and part of the opening act for TI/ T Pain with local artists Justice and JSterling. Chrissy has also spent multiple summers training at the E.D.G.E. performing arts center and Millennium Dance Complex on scholarship. In 2013 Chrissy was selected for the Professional Semester Program at Broadway Dance Center where she trained with world-renowned choreographers. Chrissy feels so lucky to give these kids the gift and love of dance that she had when she was a student.
