Christine "Cricket" Foster



Christine “Cricket” Foster started her dance training at 8 years old. She danced with the Eastern Shore Ballet Theatre in Maryland. Cricket has many Nutcracker memories as she grew up in her studio. One of her most memorable roles as a child was Small Alice in Alice in Wonderland in The Baltimore Ballet (Professional). She continued her professional dance career with Elsa Pardo Dance Center in Florida and the ballet company Bravo. There she had solos of Blue Bird/Blue Fairy in Cinderella, Water in Treasures of the Sea, and Courtesan in Copelia and Don Quixote.

Cricket’s Musical Theater credits include Snow Queen (Off Broadway) in Clara’s Christmas Dreams, Lucy in Jekyll &Hyde (regional), Louisa and Leisl in Sound of Music, Annie (understudy) and orphan in Annie, and Up with People. She studied at American Musical and Dramatic Academy in NYC and opera major/dance minor at Salisbury University in Maryland.

Cricket is also well known in our community as a singer and member of Bounce Party Band. Cricket also is a yoga and Pilates instructor at Zenitry. We are so grateful to have her at Burlington Dance Center with her expertise and strong teaching skills.
