How does it work?

Catherine Palmier


Assists individuals to unleash one's own authentic movement offering guided explorations to refine one's dance using grounded organic movement, effortless power and fluid grace.


With over 10 years of professional dance experience, academic dance training in Paris, the Guinea, Conakry, Senegal, Burkina Faso, U.S.A and knowledge of multiple styles of dance, Catherine skillfully and with a keen movement sensibility helps dancers discover the origin and understanding of their own personal movement. She draws from performance concepts, emotions, visualizations, memories, body mechanics, sensations and alignment to support a constantly flourishing understanding of dance for her students.

Catherine hopes her students receive insight, playfulness and enthusiasm from her work enabling them to develop their own signature style within their dance.


Because of Catherine's ability to interpret various dance styles coupled with her proficiency in revealing the unlimited nature of African dance an body mechanics, this makes her appealing to dancers of any genre or experience level.


My body is a tongue and all it wants is speak. It speaks many languages and has different accents. At time it is quite as it is also a good listener.
