Katerina Soldatou started taking dance lessons at a very young age, after her return from England, where she was born and spent her early years.
While in Greece, she was for some time a field and track athlete, but soon she fell back to her favourites, classical and modern dance. She holds diplomas of the RAD system (Royal Academy of Dancing) in the fields of Modern Dance and Jazz and she is a certified Aerial Yoga instructor. She also holds a BSc in Marketing from the American College of Greece, where she studied for four years.
Katerina is the founder and Director of “Beyond Aerial” (Aerial ever after), the first Aerial Dance School in Greece, located in the Indoor Olympic Swimming Pool of the Olympic Athletic Centre of Athens (OAKA).
In 2014 she starred dancing in the air in the short film “Games of Trust”, which ranked among the ten best films of the “Onassis Foundation Competition”, organised by the Onassis Cultural Centre. She also starred in “The End of War film that was nominated as an Official Movie for the School of Fine Arts of the University of Athens. A few years earlier, Katerina Soldatou qualified to take part in a specialised seminar for aerial dance teachers (Aerial Master Class) taught by Ana Prada and organised by “Les Recontres De Dance Aerienne” (LRDA) in France.
Today, she is the initiator and producer of “Greece has Soul”, a project inspired from her strong desire to remind everyone the natural beauty that surrounds us, which we usually take for granted. The idea of the project is to create environmental awareness in Greece and abroad and raise interest in Greek history and natural beauty.
