Christie Kamanarof

Christie’s love for dance began as a gymnast at the age of 4; her early ballet lessons turned into a life long passion, and at 7 she began dancing with Indiana Ballet Theater. Christie performed with Indiana Ballet Theatre in all of their full length ballets including The Nutcracker, Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Coppelia, Sean Lake, and Firebird, in Kaliedoscope, and later toured with IBT to Disney World in France, as well as Germany, England, and both Cancun and Cozumel in Mexico. Christie received her BA in Dance from Columbia College, Chicago in 2005, and has been one of two keynote modern dance program faculty members with IBT for almost 20 years. She is trained in RPM and ISTD training methods, and choreographs for Company 1, 2 and the Trainees.
