Kataklò Athletic Dance Theatre

Accademia Kataklò Giulia Staccioli is the first professional training and initiation academy dedicated to Athletic Dance Theatre performers.

Internal Teachers & Guests

Specialised Professionals in Technical Creative and Artistic Fields

A team of Specialized Teachers prepares students both technically and creatively and artistically. In addition to various internship and stage introduction opportunities, participation in workshops taught by guest choreographers and dancers from the international artistic scene completes the educational offerings.

Customised Paths

For each one according to physical/gymnastic peculiarities and age

The presence of the Kataklò Company at the same Academy location allows the student to witness the creation of the vast choreographic repertoire up close, to learn about the daily professional reality of a dance company, and to be able to study the company’s repertoire guided by the dancers and the Director.

For each pupil, customization of the course of study is possible according to physical/gymnastic peculiarities and age: both special reduced programs are prepared for younger talents approaching the academic professional path, and advanced program for older pupils with previous professional experience.

Thanks to the many collaborations that Accademia Kataklò has created over the past ten years and renews annually, all students have the opportunity to participate in various performance activities, respecting their level of training. The most deserving talents are involved in extracurricular professional start-up experiences and Kataklò company events.


DanceHaus is an accredited body for Professional Training Services.
