Christopher Page-Sanders


Christopher Page-Sanders, originally from St. Louis, Missouri, received his formal dance training from the Center of Creative Arts (COCA) and from the University of Missouri- Kansas City (Conservatory of Music and Dance). He currently serves as co-founder and co-artistic director of the Nu-World Contemporary Danse Theatre which he founded with Bashir Page-Sanders. For the past seven years he danced as a member of the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble (Denver, CO), serving as both choreographic assistant to Ms. Cleo Parker Robinson and as the assistant rehearsal director. In the past he has been fortunate to dance with such companies as Wylliams\Henry Contemporary Dance Company, Owen\Cox Dance Group, Kansas City Friends of Alvin Ailey as well as other theatre companies such as The St. Louis Black Repertory and the Muny to name a few. He has served as resident choreographer to COCA’s Summer Musical Program since it’s inception. He has been very blessed to have had the opportunity to teach dance and lead various dance focused community workshops on an international and national level. His choreography has been presented on a national level twice at the International Associations of Blacks In Dance Conference. In 2013 and 2014, he was recognized and given the Leni Wylliams Award for choreography and innovation for the work that he has produced for Cleo Parker Robinson Dance. To his mentors and to his ancestors on their shoulders I dance! Peace and Blessings; Love, Light and Art!
