Christin Call
           

Christin is an assemblage artist and lives an active lifestyle as a contemporary dancemaker. She is Co-artistic Director of the Seattle-based company Coriolis Dance and is an originator of Postballet Technique, a method of movement that utilizes embodiment, imagery, and contemporary practices to inform the classical ballet vocabulary. She began practicing classical Pilates in her teens with Aliesa George and Mei Wong of Centerworks Pilates in Wichita, KS. With Pilates’ unique method of developing long, lean muscles, it was an excellent way to cross-train and further develop her athleticism. When a severe back injury sidelined her dance career for 4 years, she discovered how the modular nature and low impact of Pilates also allowed her to be physically active without pain, rehabilitating her injury and resulting in her eventual return to the stage. She received her certification from Master Teacher Dorothee VandeWalle at Metropolitan Pilates in 2010 and has taught Pilates and dance at Redmond Pilates Center, Lifestyle Pilates, and several dance studios over the years. As an instructor, Christin is very hands-on and gives generous feedback. Her approach is to collaborate with clients in order to address issues of alignment, muscle imbalances, and body awareness, molding each session to the specific needs in a way that will help each client stand taller, move with greater ease, and feel better not just in the Pilates studio but in everyday life.
