Alexandra Katsarou

Alexandra is a psychologist with training in dance rhythm therapy. She completes her bachelor studies in Psychology from Panteion University of Social and Political Sciences in Athens and in Ballet Teaching Studies from Royal Academy of Dance. Soon as she was looking for the connection between the two paths, she meets the afro american technique of Dance Therapy through Primitive Expression in Paris. As an assistant coordinator of the french psychoanalyst France Schott-Billmann, she completes the training and she actively participates in the coordination of educational seminars and experiential classes in France and in Greece from the International Association Danse, Rythme, Lien Social et Thérapie [DRLST]. Her practice is based in coordinating dance therapy sessions in France Parkinson Association, in the Institut Medico-Educatif Arc en Ciel with kids in special needs and in the Association ENDAT. As she returns back to Greece, she continues her research in the therapeutic function of dance for the classical ballet dancers, she is teaching classical ballet to kids from the preschool age till adults and organises weekly sessions, workshops and events in dance therapy. Her interest in dance anthropology drives her soon on a trip to Africa. She is working as a head RAD ballet teacher in The Academy of Dance and Art in Nairobi, Kenya and she is teaching dance to preschoolers and primary kids to the international private schools of Nairobi, as The Banda School, Braeburn School, St Christopher’s School, Montessori Learning Centre. She has the great opportunity to meet and connect with the rich cultural inheritance from the traditional rituals and dances of the kenyan tribes and she empowers herself as a teacher as well. She teaches more than 100 students from the age of 2,5 years old till adults, they are entering in RAD exams with 100% success and she participates in production of dance performances in the National Nairobi Theatre. In 2016, she is coming back to her home country and she feels the need in founding a dance cultural centre in collaboration with the Kenyan choreographer Sammy Gian, a meeting point where the aerial and structural nature of classical ballet creates a dialogue with the dynamics of African culture.Alexandra is a psychologist with training in dance rhythm therapy.
