The class starts with a Gyrokinesis based warm-up that works on connecting the body through breathing and sustained movement. This warm up allows every kind of physicality to develop flexibility, muscle strength, and stamina. After those first 25 minutes, we will start moving our body through some exercises based on coordination, balance, and musicality, followed by a task based on improvisation where movements and physicality will be explored and challenged. This will lead to a set choreography, which will be different according to the kind of style you are looking to learn and develop!
Caterina is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
Hi everybody, my name is Caterina originally from Italy and currently based in London. I'm almost 25 years old and I am a passionate dancer and choreographer, who has been in the dance industry for the last 5 years. I have been teaching dance since I was really young, as I grew up in a little school directed by my mother, where I started working at the age of 16! I hold a Master in Fine Arts in Choreography, and I am a passionate and expert dance teacher, specialized in Contemporary, Modern, Ballet & Pilates. During the last years, I had the pleasure to be featured in a variety of music videos and I'm here to help you learn how to get commercial jobs and what kind of movement palette is now popular in the industry. In fact, both as a dancer and model, I am signed by major agencies in London and I am here to expand your knowledge on how to perform in front of cameras. Finally, I am very passionate about helping my students on how to develop their own style, while developing their movement precision, musicality, and extract their personal uniqueness as movers!

Perfect! I had a blast doing the first session with Caterina. She is obviously very talented, but also very open to adapting the lesson to the student. Highly recommend
Perfect! I really enjoy Catrina’s lessons they’re very fun and enjoyable and she makes sure I understand everything clearly
Lovely human, Vicky is a natural mover.. she can easily immerse herself into contemporary dance. Very committed and focused, simply lovely to work with!
Caterina's classes are insightful and inspiring. She is friendly and approachable. Her perspective towards improvisation makes you think about your body, environment as well as your state. Her feedback has helped me with engaging my whole body while moving and break out of my movement habits.
Caterina is a great teacher. She is extremely passionate and devoted; she makes you feel strong sensation and is able to share and transmit all the passion she has for what she is doing. I highly recommend her classes!
Caterina is a fantastic teacher, she's incredibly understanding, patient and very much gears her teaching to your own pace. Having said that he’s also really good and gradually pushing you forwards. It was really amazing experience.
Caterina and I met during my first dance experience as dance companions. Her talent grown and she quickly became my dance teacher. She is extremely creative and her final aim is always to bring out the best from her students both as dancers and persons. I really recommend Caterina, because her passion and her talent are precious and contagious.
