Christine danced before she could walk!
I am from Teaneck, NJ and grew up dancing in NJ and NYC. When I stood up, I apparently immediately started standing and walking around on demi-pointe. Neither of my parents are dancers nor do they have any background in dance, and I am the first and only child, so they thought that was normal. I never sat still and loved crawling and running around however, whenever I would hear music, I would stop and start bopping about. When I was 2, my mother took me to mommy and me dance class. I was having so much fun that I left my poor mother by herself in the back "being a butterfly" while I danced up to the front next to the teacher. I guess that was when I knew that I wanted to dance. And I never turned back.
