San Ramon LogoDance Program with Miss Christie Tomlinson


Miss Christie

Better known around San Ramon as Miss Christie, has been studying dance (all types) since the age of 3. She has danced in three, very different, dance companies and performed in shows such as Once Upon A Mattress, Anything Goes, Music Man and The Boyfriend. She has also done various choreography for professional singers, dancers, bodybuilders, cheerleaders and for two Olympics (which they won 2 gold medals)! She's been teaching ballet, tap and jazz for 38 years! The last 26 years for the City of San Ramon.



Classes build upon the previous years’ experience and prepare children for the next level. Children are expected to continue in the same class level for the school year. Miss Christie’s Annual Dance Recital is held in June at The Dougherty Valley Performing Arts Center and requires students to be enrolled in the full Winter/Spring session.

For a full list of classes, descriptions and pricing please see The Activity Guide.

Please do not wear skirts or a tutu in class. They can get in the way when I am checking for proper body alignment and younger students tend to be distracted by them

Overall my girls have been attending ballet with Miss Christie for 2 yrs & they still look forward to every class as if it were their first day! We love Miss Christie!


We love Ms. Christie for her talents, humor and care. We want our girls to be introduced to dance in a caring manner and she's definitely shown that. Thank you Ms. Christie!


Ms. Christie is a wonderful dance teacher and has always worked well with the girls. Very sweet, real, and encouraging, we LOVE Ms. Christie!


My daughter has danced with Miss Christie for 15 years she truly loves to teach and inspire other dancers. She has taken classes with other studios and always came back to Miss Christie, because of her passion for her art. Thank you for 15 wonderful years.


We have loved having Miss Christie for a dance teacher!! When we moved here my daughter tried different dance studios but never liked the teachers. She still missed her old teacher. But as soon as she met Miss Christie she loved her!! I'm so happy we found her!
