Crystal Song

“I started seeing Christine when I first had a very bad back injury. She did not only help me to recover, but even trained me into a better condition for my competitive performance. Since training with her, my dance has improved to another level. Even my dance coach was amazed by what she has turned me into.”

Maggie Sheng

“I’m so glad I started working with Christine. I’ve tried many different trainers before, but none really understood the unique strength, balance and mobility needs for ballroom dancers. As a dancer herself, Christine has been able to create unique and effective programs for me and my partner. I look forward to continuing to develop with her!”
