Artist Bio

Christina Montoya is an international Brazilian Zouk instructor based out of Orange County, CA. Dancing has always been a part of her life but she did not begin any training until she was 12 years old. Her passion for dance at a young age lead her to experiment in different styles beginning with Hip-hop, Jazz, Competitive Cheerleading, and Tahitian prior to training in Latin styles like Salsa and Bachata. She has trained and performed in partner dancing since the age of 18 with various companies in Los Angeles.  

Once Christina found Brazilian Zouk she dedicated her life to this dance. She began her training with Igor Fraga who partnered with her to compete at the US Zouk Open in 2015 where they received 1st place in the Semi-Pro division. Since then, she has trained with many international artists and sought to deepen her knowledge through taking several Brazilian Zouk Teachers Courses throughout the world. She holds 1st place in various BZDC Intermediate and Advanced Jack & Jill competitions including Prague Zouk Congress 2016, Rio Zouk Congress 2018, LA Zouk Festival 2018, Zouk MX 2022, Canada Zouk Congress 2022 and she is the first person in the US to enter the Advanced division. Christina has taught Brazilian Zouk for 7 years all over the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Brazil, and Australia. She also holds the 1st place title with her partner Alisson Sandi for the "Mixed Latin Cabaret Couples Division" from the World Salsa Solo in 2018 where they also received the highest scores for the overall competition.
