Our team at Sydney Dance Rhythms is made of passionate and friendly dance instructors who pour their whole soul and energy into the dance lessons so students can get the best and most enjoyable experience and dance instructions in a class. Our dance instructors have been carefully chosen to inspire and motivate our young and adult students, and help them achieve great results in a dance competition (if they compete), on a stage (if they perform), in understanding body movements and rhythm.



Cristina started developing her dancing skills in Ballroom, Latin and Street Latin in 1998 in her homeland of Romania where she also competed and performed.

Cristina continued improving her dancing skills under many of the top Ballroom and Latin instructors in Australia and during this time she volunteered to teach so she may share her passion and love of dance with others.

Whilst volunteering, Cristina decided to establish her own school - SDR was founded on this dream. Today she continues her quest for self-improvement whilst sharing her knowledge and her love of dance with her students.

Cristina was a highly-qualified school teacher in Romania, and is highly proficient at the delivery of instructions. Furthermore, being a highly competent dancer, she is able to effectively communicate and instruct any combination of Ballroom and Latin Dances.

Cristina teaches:
- Latin and Salsa Dance Classes (level 1 and 2) on Wednesdays in Summer Hill
- Zumba Classes on Saturday mornings in Summer Hill
- Romanian Folk Dance Classes
- Ballroom and Latin Dance Workshops
- Bridal Dance Lessons for bridal couples, father-daughter, bridal party in Summer Hill
- Private Dance Lessons in Latin and Ballroom dancing for self-improvement, competitions and performances
