Madame Christine Dill graduated from the Hartford Conservatory of Music and Dance
under the tutelage of Dame Margarita Froman, Prima Ballerina with the renowned
Bolshoi Ballet Company. Classical Ballet is Christine's passion; she has danced
such roles as "The Doll Fairy”, "The Plain Princess”, "Little
Red Cap” and the original Choreography from "The Dying Swan”, as taught to
Anna Pavlova. She currently dances at the Konservatoriet directed by Lynn
Penn Davidson and we joyfully welcome her back for her second year as an instructor at SonDance.
Joy Chase has been taking dance
classes since she was 14! Joy graduated from Living Waters Christian School in
2009, and is currently pursuing her BA at York County Community College. At the age of 13, Joy became a student leader
at her church's youth group, and she continues to work there. Joy said,
"To me, dance is such an awesome way to glorify God, and really speak a
loud message! I’m excited to see what God has in store for SonDance this
year!" We are thrilled to have Joy joining us for her third year teaching
at SonDance, and we know that the SonDance students will benefit both from her
dancing ability as well as her great love for the Lord.from
Albert has been a talented gymnast and dancer for the past eight years. She is
noted for her flexibility and expressive dancing style and she has been a
member of many successful dancing competition teams. For the past four years,
Annie has been the receptionist and personal assistant to Dr. Johnson at
Goodhall Hospital. She has been married to Tyler, who is a phenomenal hip hop
dancer, since 2010. Annie is the Worship Coordinator for Kid’s Church at
Curtis Lake Church in Sanford. We are happy to welcome Annie to SonDance and
will enjoy her beautiful gift of dance as well as her dedication to Jesus.
Brie Sampson has
been dancing since she was five! Brie began dancing with Ballet New England at
age 11 and, at age 12, entered their pre-professional program. At age 14, she
joined their professional company and then at age 16, joined the Boston Ballet
Summer program and Portland Ballet CORPS program. She was offered her first
professional contract with the Portland Ballet shortly after graduation from
high school. Working with producers and directors from New York, she is
currently the choreographer for a new ballet called, "Jack and
Jill.” Brie is also training to become a ballroom dancing teacher. She
enjoys ballroom because it teaches etiquette and demands respect and honor, two
qualities she feels guys and girls today need to embrace. Her passion is to work
with high school age students because during this confusing time of transition
they need the confidence that Jesus and dance can give them. With great joy, we
welcome Brie to SonDance this year and look forward to what the Lord will do
Colleen Allen-Maynes took on a leadership role in the
adult lyrical class last year and, this year, it is with great joy that we announce
that she will be the lead instructor for that class. Colleen has been dancing
for the past 7 years. Her interest in dance was not realized during childhood,
but as an adult, Colleen has found a natural ability to move with grace and
purpose. She is an occupational therapist specializing in hand and lymphedema
therapy and her heart is to see people restored to full health. She and her
husband, Scott, have two daughters, both of whom dance at SonDance, and they
have been attending Messiah for over ten years. The adult class is blessed to
have Colleen's graceful and caring leadership.
We are thrilled
to have these teachers join the SonDance staff this year.
