Patricia (she/her) is a freelance dancer, model and movement director based in L.A.
Trained at the Kirov Academy in Washington D.C., Patricia became a Prix de Lausanne prizewinner
in just four years of training. Patricia danced at The Royal Ballet, Staatsballett-Berlin, and L.A.
Dance Project, before becoming a freelance dancer in 2019 to pursue creating her own work.
Though Patricia comes from a ballet background, she applies a contemporary view to classical
technique. She has worked with choreographers such as Ohad Naharin, Nacho Duato, Benjamin
Millepied, Hofesh Schecter, Charm LaDonna, Jacob Jonas and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui amongst many
others. This has allowed her to work and dance in many different styles, which she believes is
complimentary to her ballet experience.
Patricia has done choreography as well as direction for dance films of her own. She hopes to
bring dance and joy of movement to a bigger audience through her teaching platform (launched
in 2020) and grow awareness of dance as a story-telling medium through her films.
Patricia has taught internationally for over 10 years in cities including Hong Kong, Arles, Beijing,
Wuhan, Detroit, Los Angeles and Singapore.
ABOUT THE CLASS:
”My class is a mixture of different things that I’ve learned over the years dancing around the
world. You can expect a European-style ballet class influenced by Vaganova épaulement and just
a touch of Balanchine with an emphasis on “dancing.” The goal is to come away with simple
things you can focus on during your future practice to help you continually improve with or

without a physical teacher.”
