Katia on Middle Eastern Dance

"My passion for performance and teaching is equal. My passion for the dance and the thrill of a good performance never leaves me. Great performance is the goal of our study."

"I love the classical Oriental dance for its elegance where one can be a queen on stage, and for its dynamic range of Middle Eastern movements. I love the folkloric dance (regional dance) as one can tell stories through this style and reach the people. I love and respect both styles of the dance, the ethereal and the earthy. To me, they are two sides or personalities of the dance, two different characters which are both part of the culture, part of the dancer, part of the woman.

"Performing and teaching are, in a way, the same; sharing who you are, what you know, what you can do with an audience or students. The difference is that you must motivate the students and give them what they need. You must care about what the students do with what you teach them when they leave the classroom. That is why I always try to give them more than just steps or choreography. I give them Dance!..... something they can apply to all their choreographies and improvisational dance."
