Catherine Young

Catherine’s classes are highly physical and technical and incorporate much somatic, contemporary dance and yoga training to enable the dancer to experience the full body in motion. Catherine's contemporary classes are influenced by her yoga and African dance training and are highly physical in nature. Class begins with a strong floor based warm up that works to standing and her style focuses on floorwork, breath, release, rhythm, balance and the full body in motion.

DanceHouse Protocols

Please note the following measures have been put in place for the well being of all who use DanceHouse.
Collectively, we will find a new rhythm for interacting while ensuring we follow best practice in keeping ourselves and others safe as we move in the studio space.

  • Please come changed for class as changing rooms and showers are closed. (Toilet rooms are open.)
  • Each group or class entering DanceHouse has a specific time to do so. 
    Morning Class participants can enter the building between 9.45am and 10am only. Classes will start at 10am sharp. 
    This is done to minimise crossover between groups entering and leaving, keep the flow in the building and to prevent clusters of people in the foyer and stairs.   
    Unfortunately, you cannot come earlier than above to keep the number of people at the safest level.
    All participants must leave the studio promptly at 11.30am – time for cool down will be part of the class and there will not be additional time in the studio after class for this.
    These times are scheduled to limit the crossover of people entering and leaving.
