“A little less conversation, a little more action, please.”
– The King, Elvis Presley

Christina Schell was born and raised in Langley, B.C., where her love for dance began at the age of three. Her dance vocabulary pulls from years of training and experience in ballet, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, jazz funk, heels, cabaret, tap, and musical theatre.

Christina competed in dance competitions across British Columbia for her entire youth. She attended Langley Fine Arts School (LFAS), where she was a member of their “Esprit De Corps” dance company for five years. As a team, they traveled to Miami, Philadelphia and New York to train and perform. Upon graduation with a Dance Major, Christina received scholarships to Coker College, South Carolina, and institutions in Calgary, Alberta.

To further pursue her career in dance, Christina moved to Vancouver to work and train with The Source- a professional dance company under the direction of Joanne Pesusich. Following her season with The Source, Christina accepted a contract with Princess Cruise Lines on a contract throughout the Caribbean. After auditioning for season three of “So You Think You Can Dance Canada” where she made it to the finals in Toronto, Christina continued to travel throughout Canada and internationally to China, London and Los Angeles, training and performing. Television and film highlights include “Center Stage: Turn It Up”, “Rags” (Nickelodeon), “Zapped” (Disney), “The Man in a High Castle” (Amazon Prime), “The Inbetween” (Netflix) and “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” (NBC).

Christina is a lead dancer and choreographer of the 1950’s style group “The Darlings Cabaret”. This intimate and interactive show combines rock, jazz, and indie into their modern cabaret-style show. The group performs sold out shows at Vancouver’s favourite entertainment venue Guilt and Co in Gastown.

Christina is the host of Life in a Schell- an audio version of Christina’s life and mind, bringing well-known creatives that inspire her on to the show for meaningful conversations. Her goal for her podcast is to take it to camera.

She’s got a rockabilly heart, Christina loves all things Elvis.
