Catherine Walker

Catherine has been involved with dance for more than 30 years. She danced professionally with FestivalBallet in Banff, Alberta, Les Grandes Ballets Canadiens, and Calgary City Ballet.  Catherine performed in the ballets Serenade, and Symphony in C by George Balanchine. She danced in some of the great classics such as Giselle, Les Sylphides, Carmina Burana and Nutcracker. Catherine was fortunate to have original pieces choreographed on her by Serge Benneton, Howard Richard, Lambros Lambrou and Jean Leger.

Catherine retired from her professional career in dance 18 years ago. She uses her expertise to train and coach pre-professional and professional dancers. Catherine brings enthusiasm, a love of movement and a profound respect for the body to her sessions. Catherine enjoys the privilege of working with Mocean Dance as their Ballet Coach, Rehearsal Mistress and as an Artistic Advisor. The 4 years she has worked with Mocean has been exciting and fulfilling. Mocean Dance is an important part of Halifax's artistic community and Catherine is proud to be working with these wonderful dancers.
