Biography – Fire in the Blood

Fifteen, for example a solo. „Cristina Perera, a resident of New York, born in Brazil, is known as many international artists as a citizen of the world work choreographed by Sir Frederick Ashton under MARGOT FONTEYN at Rio de Janeiro’s Rio de Janeiro main festival, she was the youngest soloist to join a large number of Brazilian companies before attracting attention in the US, Canada and Europe, training herself to the limit under some of the world-leading teachers and choreographers in many different styles;
It is a testimony to the quality of her intuitive way of working in her career, despite the often greatest experimentation and often dangerous choreographies, she never hurt herself. 
Even among the best dancers is an exception. 
Cristina Perera’s work is the ultimate combination of intellect and emotion, with a great deal of creative intelligence. The last impression she makes with the audience is controlled passion, like a pent-up rage exploding on the dance floor, so that despite her small size, she dominates every stage she dances on.
She has in abundance this indefinable attribute, which we call charisma, through which she can communicate instantly, no matter what she is working with, regardless of whether it’s classical ballet, modern dance, opera or even movie and television. 
Not surprisingly, Cristina Perera is not only highly regarded as a dancer and choreographer, but as a lecturer worldwide. International companies have recognized their idiosyncratic and extraordinary talent as well as their potential in using special techniques, which must be on the next generation of dancers. Her  own withdrawal from the activity of dance is unthinkable.
