Christina Carminucci, born and raised in New Jersey, is a New York City based tap dancer. She began her training with the American Tap Dance Foundation's Tap City Youth Ensemble and has studied extensively under the mentorship of Derick K. Grant. Christina is a Cum Laude graduate from Pace University (2016) with a BBA in Arts and Entertainment Management and can be seen performing, choreographing and teaching throughout NYC.

She has appeared in works by Brenda Bufalino, Jason Janas, Derick Grant, Felipe Galganni, Leonardo Sandoval, and Tony Waag, to name a few. Additionally, this proud Jacob's Pillow Tap Program alumna has danced with a number of notable companies including Michelle Dorrance's Dorrance Dance, Sarah Reich's Tap Music Project, and Chloe Arnold's Apartment 33. Over the past few years Christina has performed throughout the NYC area both in acclaimed venues, such as the Duke on 42nd, Jazz at Lincoln Center, New Victory Theater, and Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), and on reputable award show stages, including the New York City Capezio A.C.E Awards and the 2016 Bessie Awards.

Most recently, she has worked internationally as an ensemble member of Christopher Erk's Tap Factor performing four original tap dance shows on board the #1 rated cruise ship in the world, the MS Europa 2 of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises.
