guest blog - Hysterica dancer Stephanie Kim

Hi! My name is Stephanie and I've been living and dancing in LA for the last 6 years. I performed with a (Hysterica) dancer who told me I should definitely go to Kitty's class! A year later, I finally got my butt in there and was challenged while still being able to dance my heart out. So I kept going back. I just finished performing in the latest run of the LA Opera's La Traviata, choreographed by Kitty. This is one of many times I've been lucky to work with her. Every time we create in class or rehearsal I always learn a little more about myself. I'm very classically trained and I feel Kitty's class enables me to color outside the lines and hear music differently than before. But most importantly, her class has helped me find my story. I am grateful that Kitty has stressed that lesson. It has helped every thought, breath, and movement have a purpose. I've flourished in my performance and mind-set in the studio. Get in her class, you will learn treasures!

training beautiful dancers

i've been fortunate to have had some amazing dancers come through my class and my rehearsals over the years...this is what i see in the best of them:

  • bravery-they are willing to take risks. 
  • passion-their love for dance shines through the pain and sweat.
  • persistence-their passion drives them through the challenging times-never give up.
  • rebellion-the strength to challenge convention separates the great from the good.
  • individuality-my favorite quality! you'll need both bravery and rebellion for this one!

Amoureux "Lost the Plot"

kitty's choreography beautifully compliments the hazy, indie pop sound of Holiday J and Nicole Turley's musical duo, Amoureux. Entertainment Weekly calls the video for their latest release, "gorgeously choreographed". check it out!
