Cristin Chabot began her dance education at the age of three-years-old. After studying with Boston Ballet and other local studios in the Boston and Cambridge areas, Chabot attended the National Academy of the Arts in Champaign, Illinois, under the direction of Petrus Bosman. She then moved on to attend North Carolina School of the Arts (NCSA). Upon graduation from NCSA, Chabot auditioned for professional ballet companies. She landed her first job with Ballet West as a member of the corps de ballet where she performed in many repertory pieces, as well as numerous classical ballets such as Giselle, Swan Lake, Romeo and Juliet, The Dream, and The Nutcracker. After performing with Ballet West, Chabot took a job performing as a principal dancer and teaching for Northwest Florida Ballet in Pensacola, Florida, where she eventually became the assistant director and choreographer.
Since then, Chabot has accumulated over twenty-five years of teaching dance. She teaches all levels of ballet technique and pointe. Additionally, she choreographed many pieces for Phillips Exeter Academy, Donna Coco’s Performance Plus, and Corpus Christi Ballet Academy.
Chabot attended UMASS Boston on a full scholarship for excellence in the arts and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BA. She also holds a master’s degree in education from Lesley University. She has worked as a public-school teacher for eleven years.
