Technique. Artistry. Mindset. Mentorship.




After retiring as Artistic Director of the beloved ballet school that I founded and directed over twelve years, I am pleased to present my new, personalised coaching service.

Why Coaching? 

Each dancer’s journey is as unique as they are.  Different backgrounds, bodies, minds and motivations means that no two dancers are alike and each will benefit from supplementary training in various areas to help achieve & maintain the high standards expected of dancers today.  Through personalised coaching, dancers can work on all sorts of personal goals such as exam preparation, toning the physique, perfecting technique, gaining flexibility, improving musicality, preparing for pointe-work etc.  They also benefit enormously from having the watchful eye of an experienced teacher focusing 100% on them.  No matter where you’re at with your dance journey, personal classical coaching can help you to reach new heights.  

Why choose Developing Dancers? 

Developing Dancers is recommended for dedicated students who are committed to improving their dancing.  Kate’s breadth of teaching experience and continued passion for dance comes across to her students, inspiring and motivating them to achieve new heights. Having lived & breathed ballet most of her life, Kate brings a wealth of personal & professional experience to her coaching.  Moving from Australia to train under the Russians in Germany at age 16, she soon developed a deep respect and appreciation for world-renowned Vaganova method of ballet teaching and a determination to make this method accessible to her future students.  Kate has now trained a great number of students from beginner through pre-professional level, seeing many accepted into professional academies in Australia, Europe, Canada & USA and still mentoring several today.  She takes a highly intuitive approach based on over fourteen years of teaching, closely monitoring her students’ progress and adjusting course as necessary.  With genuine care, technical expertise and an inspirational manner, you can be assured that your child will be in capable & caring hands.
