Christina (Marshall) Wladimirov received a BPA Degree in Dance Performance, from Ann Lacy’s School of American Dance and Arts Management, at Oklahoma City University. Hard work, and devotion enable her consistent employment opportunity instructing and performing internationally. She’s had the pleasure of working for producer, Neil Goldberg in Cirque Productions, “Imaginique,” played characters Wendy & Snow White, in “Once Upon a Mouse” & “One Man’s Dream II” in Tokyo Japan’s Disneyland and cruised the high seas for Stiletto Entertainment as cast company manager and featured dancer onboard several Holland America Line vessels. Some other performance jobs include assistant for US World Champion of Magic, Jason Latimer, in his show, “Imagineer,” Weird Al Yankovich’s tour, “Running With Scissors,” industrial promotions for Mercedes Benz, and upon relocating to Seattle, she performed in Village Theatre’s, MARY POPPINS. Her greatest accomplishment this past year was on June 27th, when she became a mother for the first time to her sweet baby girl, Abrielle Skye. Christina is so very excited to share her love of dance and passion with all of the lovely Duvall Performing Arts dancers.
