Christopher trained at the Australian Ballet School and enjoyed an 18-year international dance career. He danced with the Australian Ballet from 2001-2005, then joined the Royal Ballet of Flanders, Belgium, in 2006 and was promoted to soloist in 2008. He joined West Australian Ballet in 2014 and performed with the company for four years. Throughout his career, he has danced leading roles in the classical and contemporary repertoire and has worked first-hand with numerous choreographic masters of this generation. Commencing his choreographic career in 2014, he has created 12 original choreographic works for the West Australian Ballet which have been performed in Perth at His Majesty’s Theatre, Perth Festival in 2017 and 2018, and in Jakarta on tour with West Australian Ballet in 2016 and 2017. Christopher continues to work with the West Australian Ballet as a Professional Teaching Artist where he develops and delivers dance-based educational programs to primary and secondary school students in Perth and throughout regional Western Australia, as well as choreographer for the West Australian Ballet Youth ensembles in Western Australia and Jakarta. Since retiring from the stage, Christopher has completed his Bachelor of Performing Arts at Edith Cowan University/Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts in 2019, and will complete his Master of Business, Arts, and Cultural Management at Deakin University in late 2021. Christopher is a regular Dance Tutor at John Curtin College of the Arts in Fremantle, WA, where he teaches classical ballet and choregraphs for the senior school students. Additionally, he is a freelance dance teacher and choreographer at numerous pre-professional dance institutions in Perth where he shares his experience and knowledge with the next generation of emerging dancers.Future creative projects include a ten-day residency at the Ukaria Cultural Centre in the Adelaide hills in late 2021 where he will collaborate with his sister, Fiona Hill, who will compose a new score for a dance film project with dance film maker Sue Healey. The aim of the project is to investigate the collaborative process between composer, film maker, and choreographer and is devised as a reaction to the current challenges of presenting live performing arts in a traditional theatre setting due to Covid-19. The residency and resulting new work will act as a springboard for future collaborations that harness film as the medium to present new Australian work that reaches a global audience. Christopher is currently working towards becoming a leader of an Australian performing arts organisation to continue his mission to discover and develop new Australian creative voices, and to provide a platform for collaboration and production of new Australian dance works. He will develop a new project-based dance company in 2022 that unites leading Australian choreographic and compositional voices in the endeavour of promoting the future of the performing arts.
