Topaz Davis, Professional Ballerina and Yoga Instructor

AZYB 2010-2012

The training that I received from Christina Hampton is not only vital for a healthy and injury-preventive career, but also for a successful and intelligent one. Her technical base has provided a solid foundation that I’m able to utilize in all forms of dance and has helped separate and highlight my strengths as a dancer and an artist. Her knowledge of proper alignment, correct muscle development, and artistic coordination is imperative for a professional career and has proved to be invaluable and relevant for years to come. The performing and rehearsing opportunities that she provides, through Arizona Youth Ballet, have taught me many skills and tools necessary to survive in this profession. I wouldn’t be where I am today or have the opportunities of tomorrow, without all of the beautiful work that has been generously shared and carefully taught from Christina Hampton.
