Hi I'm Christopher
I am a retired professional ballet dancer and ballet master. I teach ballet to young aspiring dancers. I guest as a professional dancer in other professional ballet companies around the country and world. I am married to a beautiful strong woman with two beautiful children here with us and one that has already made it home to our Heavenly Father. It is truly a blessing to have the gospel of Jesus Christ in my life especially having lost a child. I know I'll see him again.
Why I am a Mormon
I was raised in the church with great faithful parents. I did stray away from the church for a little while. My testimony was still weak and I thought my life would be better without religion. I soon came to realize that without the presence of God in my life, my life felt empty and left me wanting and pleading for more. I returned to church one Sunday on a whim and was welcomed with open arms of love, not only by my parents but by practically the whole congregation. What a great return. I was able to serve a mission, where I truly gained an even stronger testimony. I now have an unshakable testimony. I know that the gospel has blessed my life. I have a firm testimony that the gospel of Jesus Christ is for everyone who is willing to accept Christ name upon themselves and as their personal savior. The gospel is true and know this without a shadow of a doubt.
How I live my faith
Everyday. My students and I perform around the community at children's hospitals and children's homes throughout the year. I really enjoy giving back and sharing the gift of dance with those who may not otherwise have the opportunity of enjoying it. I have had the wonderful opportunity of working with young men from ages 12-18/19 for many years. I enjoy visiting families and one of the widows in my congregation a couple times each month. I now have the opportunity and blessing to serve with our dear Bishop. I strive each and every day to try to emulate Christ in my actions and interactions with those around me.
