Dance with Kathy
Kathy’s interest in diversity and expression of the contemporary dance form — sharing it with her audience and her students in the evolution of dance expression — makes her a highly sought-after dancer in the B.C. dance community. Kathy is an intuitive, experienced teacher who brings energy, humour and compassion to her classes.
Trained in both RAD and ISTD Ballet, Kathy holds contemporary dance foundations in Limón, Horton, and Graham technique, as well as a diversity towards a European style of contemporary dance evolution.
In 2006, together with Lynda Raino, she launched “Rust,“ a contemporary movement class for the 60+ dancer. We move, create, explore — and laugh!
Elev8 Youth Dance Projects* is a pre-professional contemporary dance group in Victoria offered to the advanced youth dancer. Elev8 offers high-level training and performance opportunities for students living at home with their families. Dancers explore advanced dance mentorship, training that supports their regular studio training, masterclasses with touring companies (Alvin Ailey, Cuban National Ballet) and perform choreographic work with renowned Canadian professionals (Justine Chambers, Monica Proenca, Darryl Tracy). Kathy’s strengths as a mentor and teacher have led many dancers in Western Canada to successful and healthy professional careers.
*Elev8 Youth Dance Projects is currently on hiatus.
