Kat Wildish is a high-caliber dance instructor currently teaching multi-level ballet and pointe technique for children and adults. She trains teachers for the Dance Educators of America, and her performing credits include New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, and numerous international companies. Kat is a two-time recipient of the prestigious Ford Foundation Scholarship under which she attended the School of American Ballet.
Kat’s classes are very danceable, with a classic sense of line, musicality, placement, and style. The barre exercises are not just a warm-up series, but are anatomically sound and designed to improve the body. All parts of the dancer are exercised to promote harmony of movement according to each individual’s level of training and ability in a non-competitive atmosphere.
Kat Wildish teaches an integrative, fundamental maintenance syllabus for all types of dancers.
