Cristina Benedetti

Cristina Benedetti is an outstanding, versatile performer that can navigate from choreography to freestyle with more than 30 years of experience — from stages to live performances, theater to concerts to TV shows. She strives to always create an experience through movement both for the audience and the artists involved in the performance.

Cristina Benedetti was born in Verona, Italy. She moved to Paris at a young age for her passion of dance, where she had an intensive training in the dance art forms of locking, popping, house dancing, hip hop, and freestyle. Nevertheless, Cristina knew she had to take it a step further if she were to learn even more about the various dance styles. Los Angeles became her new home in 2006. 


For more than 2 decades, Cristina has been an active presence in the most renowned clubs and community events involving the above art forms throughout both Europe and the United States.

In 2014 she created, directed and choreographed the “It’s House Music” video featuring Pop icon Toni Basil which went viral with over 10M viewers and articles on Inside Edition.
