Celina Nightengale



Celina Nightengale was born and raised in Denver, Colorado where she started dancing at a very young age. She trained at prestigious studios such as Cleo Parker Robinson, Colorado Ballet and Hill Academy of Dance and Dramatics. Celina obtained a B.A. in Communications and Marketing from the University of Denver and while there was a member, co-captain, and choreographer of the DU Dance Team. While attending school she also danced professionally for the Colorado Mammoth Wild Bunch, where she served as captain for two years, and had the opportunity to work with and assist Denver Nuggets Dancer coach Sarah Schachterle.  Upon graduation she accepted a full dance scholarship to the Edge Performing Arts Center in Hollywood, CA where she continued her rigorous dance training.

After graduating from the Edge program she began to audition and work in LA and actually landed one of her biggest jobs as a direct booking dancing for Janet Jackson in her video “Rock with You”. Some of her credits also include dancing for and working with:, Alicia Keys, Adam Lambert, Jason Derulo, Disney’s Aladdin A musical Spectacular, Redken 5th Avenue, Boardwalk Empire, ABC’s Wicked City, and most recently Rock of Ages in Las Vegas.  

She can’t thank her family enough for always being her inspiration to follow her dreams and find new adventures, and the teachers and friends along the way that have kept her honest and growing.  When she’s not performing Celina loves teaching and taking Pure Barre, and exploring whatever city she is in for great fashion finds.
