Christopher Anderson began his training in Colorado at the Arvada center for the Arts with Howard Kanobe and Lynelle Mossholder. He went on to train with Internationally renown teacher/ pedagogue Marika Besobrasova in Monaco before training at North Carolina School of the Arts under the Guidance of Duncan Noble. There he was taught by Melissa Hayden, Robert Lindgren, Gyula Pandi, Gina Vidal, as well as guest faculty. He completed his training at San Francisco Ballet School Directed by Richard Cammack. His teachers were Henry Berg, Christine Berring, Richard Cammack, Lew Christensen, Zola Dishong, David Howard, Gabriel Septienne, Michael Smuin, Larissa Sklyanskaya and his mentor Anatole Vilzak.
Upon completion Christopher was engaged by the San Francisco Ballet and danced there for 16 years. During his time with SFB he danced numerous roles and worked with many internationally acclaimed choreographers and artists through the ranks of SFB's star system (Corps/ Soloist/ Principal). Christopher performed the works of George Balanchine David Bintley, Christopher Bruce, Val Caniparoli, William Forsythe, Jacques Garnier, James Kudelka, Jiri Kylian, Anna Laerkesen, Peter Martins, Mark Morris, Jerome Robbins Deitmar Seyferrt, Paul Taylor, Glen Tetley, Helgi Tomasson and Stanton Welch. He also danced in many of the classics such as Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Romeo & Juliet, Giselle, La Sylphide, Chopinyana and The Nutcracker.
After his time with SFB Christopher danced internationally in Europe as a guest artist. He joined Alberta Ballet, then Directed by Mikko Nissinen, and danced there as a Principal for 3 years. There he danced the works of George Balanchine, Jorma Elo, Jean Grande-Maitre, Emily Molnar, Rudi Van Danzig, Edmund Stripe, Helgi Tomasson and Christopher Wheeldon.
Christopher has taught in many dance programs and seminars for the past 12 years and is currently a faculty member of Boston Ballet School. He believes that students and professionals alike can understand that dance as an art form is born out of love (meaning dedication, hard work, commitment and follow-through) for the art, allowing the experience to be one that is both fun, rewarding and may be applied in life as well as in ballet.
