“A pint-sized powerhouse (she’s just shy of 5’3”), she dances with attack, precision and confidence. She’s equally at home doing Rhoden’s challenging off-center pointe work and strutting across the stage in stilettos…” – Dance Spirit Magazine.
Christina Dooling began her dance education at the age of three under the direction of Isobel Johnson, Kim Johnson-Spolitino, and Sandra Moore (Stewart-Johnson Dance Academy.) Christina was given the opportunity to train and compete nationally, working with choreographers such as Mia Michaels, Dee Caspary, and Tice Diorio. In 2003 Ms. Dooling was accepted to New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. There she studied with dance legends such as Gus Solomons, Jr., Kathy Grant, Deborah Jowitt and Linda Tarnay. In 2006 Christina became a member of Tisch’s Second Avenue Dance Company. It was here she crossed paths with Mr. Rhoden where he created her featured role in “Phoenix Variations.”
That summer Ms. Dooling began her professional dance career with Complexions. Since then Christina has traveled and performed extensively. Christina has been a guest artist for dance companies featuring classical ballet to Broadway styles.
Today Dooling and Rhoden are working together on the production of THE GREAT GATSBY BALLET in Kiev, embodying the creative and technical potential with Ukrainian dancers.
