Catherine Florentine

Catherine Florentine began dancing at The Dance Corner when she was two years old and was a Dance Corner dancer for 15 years. She competed with both the TDC Company and the Mulkerin School of Irish Dance and went to Ireland to perform Irish Step as an Emerald Dancer in 2011. Catherine began her training in acrobatics with Naja Muller while at TDC and taught Acrobatics at Broadway Kids and Company before coming back to The Dance Corner in 2017.  Catherine is a Tumbling Effect certified instructor and continues to further her studies in acrobatics, tumbling, strength and flexibility by attending workshops and professional training events whenever she can.  Catherine graduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Connecticut College in New London, CT, with a B.A. in Biochemistry, Cellular and Molecular Biology.  While at Conn she studied modern and ballet dance with noteworthy choreographers Heidi Henderson, David Dorfman, and Derrick Yanford. Catherine went on to purse dentistry at the University of Connecticut, and is currently an oral surgery resident. Catherine is a very dedicated dentist and is eager to become an oral surgeon!

Outside of The Dance Corner, she enjoys conducting research in a chemistry lab, working out, and studying to become a certified personal trainer. Catherine couldn’t be more excited to be teaching at The Dance Corner while sharing her love and passion for dance, tumbling, and acrobatics!
