Christina Carminucci

Christina Carminucci, born and raised in New Jersey, is a New York City based tap dancer. In her youth, she trained as a multidisciplinary dancer at a local studio, seeking out further tap dance training at BDC, Steps, and ATDF (Tap City Youth Ensemble). While earning her BBA in Arts and Entertainment Management at Pace University, Christina was fortunate enough to study extensively under the mentorship of Derick K Grant. Recognized as one of Dance Magazine's 2022 "25 to Watch," she dedicates her practice to performing, choreographing, producing and teaching.

The Jacob's Pillow Tap Program alumna has appeared in works by many of today's greats, including Dormeshia, Derick K Grant, and Michelle Dorrance (Dorrance Dance), and has performed regularly throughout the NYC area over the past several years. She is fortunate to have shared the dance in venues like The Joyce Theater, Little Island, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), the Chicago Jazz Showcase, as well as overseas.

Inspired to develop work of her own, Christina co-produced "On That Note" from 2016 to 2018 and then self produced "When the Smoke Clears" in 2019. In 2021, Christina launched "The Solidarity Series", an ongoing live performance series dedicated to both furthering the development and increasing the visibility of tap dance as it relates to jazz music. Passionate about sharing her love and knowledge of the art form, she teaches regularly at Steps on Broadway in NYC and at various workshops around the country and world.
