Teachers at the Old Town School

Christine Betsill

Modern Dance

Christine Betsill is a Carolina-bred, internationally working dancer, singer, and Alexander Technique Teacher.

Christine believes that the dance studio is a place for students to realize the power of the body. It is a self-discovery on all fronts. Her goal is to have each student develop a deeper awareness of their own individual body through somatic warm ups, experiential hand-on feedback, and juicy movement phrases. Christine’s studies in the Alexander Technique, Body-Mind Centering, and Laban-Bartenieff Fundamentals are incorporated into her technique class.

Christine was the co-founder and Artistic Director of Thread Meddle Outfit from 2005-2010. She received a Bachelors Degree in Vocal Performance and a MFA in Choreography from the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign. She received her Alexander Technique training at LCATT in London UK and ATTiC in Chicago, Illinois, completing her certificate in 2014. She has taught classes at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign, Columbia College Chicago, New Trier High School, DUOC University of Chile, and Dovetail Studios among others.

Started at the Old Town School in June of 2019
