My name is Christine Martha Ling. I am a full time second year student at Deakin University. I am studying a Bachelor of Creative Arts (Dance) with minors in Digital Media and Communications.
I have relocated from Gold Coast, Queensland to Melbourne with a goal to enter the professional contemporary dance industry as a choreographer. I have trained as a dancer for over 10 years at numerous Dance academies and schools whilst completing classical ballet examinations in with the the Royal Academy of Dance.
I am also spent a year training with Griffith University in the field of Acting and Stage Management. Prior to this I have gained teaching experience by collaborating with Special Education Program at Beaudesert State High School for the purpose of creating and performing dance routines at local eisteddfods.
My aim here in Melbourne is to explore and create movement whilst researching and gaining a wider knowledge of the theoretical and practical dimensions of contemporary dance.
