She began training with Theresa Lungaro Mifsud at 'The Dance Workshop' where she obtained her advanced 2 Cecchetti Classical Ballet with Distinction as well as her DDI Teachers Qualification -Diploma in Dance Instruction.

She then decided to further her dance studies at 'London Contemporary Dance School' In 2013 where she obtained her Diploma in Contemporary dance from the University of Kent.

Utilising the training and knowledge gained from her travels, she joined 'ZfinMalta', the National Dance company of Malta in 2015. As a full time company dancer, she had the privilege of performing in Malta as well as Palestine and Jerusalem, as part of the Ramallah Dance Festival.

Her curiosity for movement and travels eventually led her to India in 2016, where she attended the ‘Vinyasa Yoga School’ in Rishikesh, the world capital of Yoga, obtaining her Yoga Instructor certification.

Currently, Christina is teaching Ballet and Dance at ‘School Of Performing Arts’ by Drama Troupe. Her fascination and curiosity in movement and teaching is an ever-growing passion that she intends to continuously learn more about and is extremely excited to see where her search will lead her to next !

Gaby Davies

Gaby is a freelance dance artist, and certified yoga and pilates instructor who trained in Malta, the UK and India. Since a young age she has always had a passion for movement and finding means of challenging the body from an internal perspective by giving importance to anatomy and bodily sensations. When pursuing a profession in dance, she felt the necessity to engage to yoga and pilates as means to help her challenge her physicality through other movement disciplines. She immediately saw an improvement in her physical strength and body awareness that she began to devote more time in these practices and eventually also became a yoga and pilates instructor. Gaby has a passion to find a link between all three disciplines and to help people open their bodies both physically and energetically. In fact, her classes are considered both physical and engaging while adapting to the level of the students in front of her.
This unique class combines mindfulness of Yoga with self expression of Dance.
These fun, creative classes encourage a child's curiosity for knowledge and creativity. Our dancing yogis will combine simple yoga and dance poses with imaginative stories that exercise social, sensory and motor skills, whilst increasing flexibility, body awareness and coordination.
Children will be encouraged to focus and center themselves with various breathing and visualization techniques. We'll bark in downward dog, hiss in cobra pose and flutter our wings in butterfly!
Children will experience flowing combinations, and calming restorative time in a playful, welcoming environment. One that will nurture their growing minds and bodies !
We kindly ask parents to wait outside during class.
