“You have a graceful walk and a determined step. You always walk as though you know exactly where you’re going.”
– Lucky Lady Fortunes, Las Vegas

Christina Pitts started dancing at the age of 3, but according to her mother, has always demanded an audience. But it was when she was featured on TV’s “Tiny Talent Time” at the ripe age of 5, that she she truly felt her passion to perform.

Upon graduating Ryerson University in Toronto she was chosen by Bengt Jorgen to perform the principal role in Ballet Jorgen’s piece entitled “L’Aita”. This demanding role gave here the confidence she needed to enter the professional world of dance. She then auditioned for The Ontario Ballet Theatre and joined them for a season, touring with Vladimir Lavlokov’s “the Nutcracker”. In turn she was bitten by the travel bug, so she accepted the position of Dance Captain on board the MS Sunbird for it’s inaugural sail. It was only after two short contracts that she caught the eye of Martin Lily, Head of Entertainment for Airtours/Sunquest Cruises and was offered a position as Resident Choreographer in the UK. Christina moved to London England never thinking she would love working off stage as much as she did on.

With a great eye for detail, Christina assisted choreographers both on and off the ships. Some of the greats were West End’s Alan Harding, Adrian Allsopp, Tony Hosier and Roger Hannah just to name a few. Again proving herself to be a consummate professional Christina was given more and more responsibilities. Now on the panel for casting, working with costumers and the creative team, over just 3 short years Christina knew more than a hundred tracks, staged over 50 shows and traveled the world repeatedly. It was hard to decide to leave a job she loved and was so respected in… but it was time for a change. Reconnecting with her voice, she auditioned for Lead Vocalist for one of the very ships she had been in charge of. She won the job. This contract proved life changing, because she fell in love with now husband Dani Jazzar and decided to move back to Canada to start a family.

Since settling in Toronto, Christina has kept busy working as both performer and assistant for the likes of Carol Forest, Trudy Moffatt, Janet Wagner and of course husband Dani in numerous industrials. She always enjoys working with Dani but the highlight was being in the cast of the Citadel Theatre’s production of West Side Story where she was the only cast member to be both Shark and Jet.

Presently Christina continues to work with Hubby in both the Entertainment industry, as well as raising their 2 boys, Eddie 3 and newborn Leo. She is gradually making a name for herself as Costumer/Stylist, most recently having the pleasure of working with Melissa Williams, dressing her dancers to perform with Susie McNeil.
