NEW Masterclass Series Curated and Hosted by Gallim
With Catherine Ellis Kirk

Catherine Ellis Kirk of Abraham.In.Motion teaches on November 12th as part of GALLIMasters, our NEW, intensive technique and repertory masterclass series.

For advanced and professional dancers.
Monday, November 12th | 10-12pm | $20 pre-pay, $25 at the door


Classes taught by A.I.M emphasize four of the company’s core movement values: exploration, musicality, abandonment, and intuition. The opening warm-up sequence focuses on the fluidity of the spine, articulation, and core body strengthening; and then builds up to challenging, creative and invigorating phrase work. Students experience a personalized postmodern movement vocabulary full of intricate gestures and signature A.I.M moves.


CATHERINE ELLIS KIRK is originally from Dallas, Texas. After attending Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, Kirk graduated with a BFA from New York University Tisch School of the Arts and holds a yoga certification through Mind Body DancerTM. Kirk has completed programs with San Francisco Conservatory of Dance, Gaga Intensive in Tel Aviv, and Springboard Danse Montreal, and had the opportunity to perform works by Fernando Melo, Ohad Naharin, Sharon Eyal, Peter Chu, Andrea Miller, Robert Battle, and Alex Ketley. Upon graduating, Catherine has had the pleasure of working with Danaka Dance, Chihiro Shimizu and Artists, and apprenticing for Sidra Bell Dance NY. Kirk is currently dancing for UNA-Projects, Helen Simoneau Danse, and is thrilled to continue with A.I.M, which she joined in 2013.
