Christian Tworzyanski grew up in Lexington, South Carolina, where he discovered his love for dance while attending Calvert Brodie Studios. At the age of fifteen he moved to New York City to study full time at the School of American Ballet. Upon graduating he was engaged as an apprentice with the New York City Ballet, and after a year he joined the company as a member of the corps de ballet.

During his eleven years he danced featured roles in numerous Balanchine and Robbins' ballets. He also had the opportunity of working alongside choreographers including Christopher Wheeldon, Alexei Ratmansky, Benjamin Millepied, Wayne McGregor, Douglas Lee, Mauro Bigonzetti, and Justin Peck.

In the fall of 2013 Christian joined Les Ballets de Monte Carlo, under the direction of Jean-Christophe Maillot, and within a year he was promoted to soloist. During his time with the company he had the privilege of working with renowned choreographers such as Jiří Kylián, Marco Goecke, Nacho Duato, Natalia Horecna, Jeroen Verbruggen, and Jean-Christophe Maillot.

After spending five valuable years with the company, Christian has decided to branch out and explore the world of freelancing. This is also his fourth year to work as a traveling répétiteur for New York City Ballet’s Resident Choreographer, Justin Peck.
