Christina Coleman has been working this past year with The Kosovo National Ballet.  Her performance, Transitional Justice premiered last February.  As a result of this performance’s success, UN women commissioned a new piece, Një Ditë highlighting the lives of women in Kosovo. Her newest endeavor is starting a dance department within RIT Kosovo’s summer program on Peace & Conflict. Christina is  also the director of Illuminations Dance Company: Dancing For Global Awareness, a modern dance company, which has had its repertoire performed worldwide including theatres in Nairobi, Kenya, NY, NY, Philadelphia, PA, Fredericksburg, VA, Lyndon VT, Ga’Aton, Israel and Mitrovica, Kosovo. Christina created several evening length works including Transitional Justice and The Sahel A Crack In The Heart alongside speakers from the United Nations and the International Center For Transitional Justice. Christina produced numerous dance benefits to sold out theaters raising several thousand dollars for various non-profits including For Malala, American Parkinson’s Disease Association, Esther’s Aid and Make A Wish Foundation. She teaches and choreographs in several locations including The Coleman School of Dance, Sacred Heart University and New Rochelle High school.   Christina received her dance training at Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company in Israel, NYU, Avery Ballet Company, University of Mary Washington, and Coleman School of Dance, New Rochelle. Christina holds a Masters in Dance Education from New York University.  She’s very excited to be working in Wales with the Monmouthshire Youth Dance Company & Groundworks!
