Miss Christy was raised in Los Angeles and started out in gymnastics as a child.  She moved to Southern Oregon and became a member of the Grants Pass High school Royals and Royalettes state championship dance team.

She has worked with kids of all ages, taught preschool, and worked at a school for kids with special needs.  She taught at "Miss Kimbers" dance studio until its closing in 2021. 

Besides dance and teaching kids, her true passion lies with her husband, son, and their pets.  She enjoys traveling and seeing new sights!


Cora McMullen  "Miss Cora"

Instructor-ballet/jazz/r.&Sr. Performance group

My name is Cora McMullan. I’m 18 years old and I’ve been dancing since I was 3. I recently graduated high school, but I'm also going into my junior year of college. I am currently enrolled at COCC. This upcoming fall will be my third year teaching dance and I couldn’t be more excited! Dance has been a constant for me throughout my life, and a way to artistically express myself while staying in shape. My goal while teaching is to give kids the same love and passion for dance that my lovely teachers gave me. I can’t wait for this year, and I hope we can all have an incredible season together :)
