Cristina Espaillat began her study of dance at the Rock School of the Pennsylvania Ballet, at five years of age. She continued her study there for the next fourteen years, concentrating on classical ballet. During this time, Cristina had the great privilege of performing with the company at the esteemed Academy of Music. Upon graduation she was accepted to the Performing Arts program at Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana where she majored in dance and continued her training in classical ballet, modern dance and jazz. Cristina realized her lifelong dream of becoming a professional dancer when she was accepted to the City Ballet of San Diego in 2003. Rigorous training and performing was the single priority in Cristina's life until she broke her foot during rehearsals in 2005. During rehabilitation from her injury, Cristina found herself drawn to yoga and pilates. She found these disciplines to be a challenging workout that also brought great mental rewards. The culmination of Cristina's experience led her to develop "Sculpere." From the Latin-Sculpere, means literally to "sculpt." Ballet practice, a rigorous and disciplined study, creates a great sense of fitness, body awareness and artistry. Yoga and pilates are a deep and spiritual study that teaches one to fuse mental health into a physical practice. Through "braiding" both of these timeless practices, students can "sculpt" both body and mind. Although primarily a physical workout, Sculpere is designed as an all-encompassing approach to health and well-being.
