Christy Cote started dancing when she was thirteen years of age. After five years of ballet lessons, Christy went on to study jazz dance. She studied at the Institute of Contemporary Dance in Boston while she was going to college. She also loved dancing Disco and the Hustle in Boston clubs. When Christy was twenty she moved to San Francisco where her parents were living. She went to an Arthur Murray Studio to inquire about classes. The next day she ended up teaching there. She says laughingly that it wasn't because she was so talented as a ballroom instructor, but more because they were desperate for teachers. When she got her first student she said she was very afraid that he would find out she only knew one more Foxtrot step than he did. She ended up working at Arthur Murray for five years during which time she learned ballroom and social dance from the staff and visiting instructors. She also got to teach Latin, Swing, and Hustle at a professional level. Christy says that Argentine Tango has been the biggest thing in her life and it's the thing for which she has the most passion. For her, it is all encompassing, it has become her social and professional environment. It is also her creative outlet and now her life style. When she dances the Tango with someone with whom she enjoys dancing, she says she goes into a trance and only comes out of it when the music stops or when the applause begins. She says anyone can experience that feeling but it requires more than just learning steps. One must be enveloped by the whole experience of Argentine Tango.
