Professional ballet dancer and teacher with 10 years experience offering private lessons

Methodology

I trained in both the UK (Birmingham Royal Ballet) and France (Ecole Superieure de Danse a Cannes) and I like to combine the precision and attention to detail found in the English technique with the passion and expression typical of French approaches. I usually explain which muscle groups are being worked in each exercise and how we can use them to refine our technique. As I get to know a student I will try to adapt the exercises to strengthen their individual weaknesses and strengths and to understand how to prevent recurring injuries or bad habits.
I am naturally quite relaxed and upbeat, passionate about health and fitness, but I also come from a strict dance background and expect to work hard with my students and make steady progress.

Experience

I am a professional ballet dancer and teacher based in Central London with 10 years experience. I have worked at The English National Ballet, Ballet Zurich, Ballet Tivoli and The Royal Opera House, among others. I currently teach children at The Ballet School in West London and adults at Princeps Dance Academy in Fulham. I am happy to offer private classes in your home, or in a studio if you are able to arrange one.
I have experience teaching beginners all the way up to professionals and I will offer exercises and training tailored to your needs and goals.
As well as teaching I also continue to perform and choreograph for shows, adverts, music videos and workshops, which can be viewed on my instagram account: @katebyrnedancer

Perfect! She is so lovely and a wonderful teacher - I am loving our lessons!

Kate's response

Samina is a lovely student with a sunny and hard working character and a lot of natural talent. We will work on strength, flexibility, technique and more complex combinations in the coming weeks.

Ella

Perfect! Kate is an excellent tutor and I throughly enjoyed our session. During our first session, Kate took me through basic steps; dissecting them bit by bit which helped me hugely. I found her approachability as well as her professionalism very reassuring. I continue to enjoy these sessions hugely and I would highly recommend her as a ballet tutor.

Kate's response

Ella is a lovely student and I thoroughly enjoyed our ballet class!

Anne

Perfect! Kate is an excellent ballet teacher. She is enthusiastic and is able to capture my 6 year old's imagination and keep her focussed for a whole hour, despite having to do this online. She is patient and blends fun with serious ballet technique such that my daughter looks forward to each session with her. She has sparked my daughter's interest in ballet again and I cannot recommend her enough. She is also very approachable with any questions that either of us have. She is punctual and quick to reply to messages.

Kate's response

Kathryn is a lovely, hardworking and talented student and I thoroughly enjoy our ballet classes together!
