Caitlin Christopher is from Atlanta Georgia where she first fell in love with ballet at the age of twelve. After studying pre-professionally through high school at North Atlanta Dance Academy and attending such summer programs as Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, North Carolina School of the Arts, and Boston Ballet, she pursued a degree in Dance at the University of Georgia.
While studying at UGA she was a member of the University of Georgia Ballet Ensemble, becoming president of the group by her senior year. She also performed guest work including Hubbard Street Dance Theatre’s piece “The 40s” and was a soloist in Kennett Oberly’s “Within/Without”.
While at UGA, she also discovered her love of creating choreography. Some of her notable achievements in creation are her solo piece “Intoxicating Misery” that received an honorable mention at the Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities (CURO), the trio “Unquiet Divide” that was nominated for and shown at American College Dance Festival Association, and “NYC-SYR: Seat 24” the 10 dancer ensemble piece that was nominated to be shown at ACDFA.
Caitlin is now in her first season with the contemporary ballet company Ballet Fantastique in Eugene Oregon, performing soloist roles in the sold out Cirque de Lune, Casanova, and Pride and Prejudice: A Parisian Jazz Ballet.
