Katya Robledo graduated with Distinction from Canada’s National Ballet School’s Teacher Training Program and was honoured with the Betty Oliphant Award, which pays tribute to the most promising graduate in the field of teaching.  She began her career as professional dancer with the National Ballet of Mexico in 1991, where she worked under the direction of such renowned Ballet Masters as Fernando Alonso and David Howard.

Recognised by her distinct approach that emphasizes the dynamics of movement, energy patterns, and musicality, Katya has been teaching young dancers, adult beginners and professional dancers for nearly 25 years. In addition, she holds a Bachelor’s degree in International Management from the University of Ottawa, which has led her to venture into research, cultural promotion and production of spectacles. But, what she enjoys the most is sharing her love of dance and promoting the overall well-being of her students.
