Catherine Poppell Colon
Catherine caught the dance bug at a young age and studied under Deedie Love Davis for sixteen years in dance and acrobatics. At the completion of high school, she already had four years of teaching elementary age students under her belt. In 2011 she graduated from the American Music and Dramatic Academy’s Dance Theater program, where she was one of seven to pioneer the program.
Soon after she was drawn to the benefits of yoga for dancers and attended Three Sister Yoga and received her 200 hour RYT certification in Vinyasa Yoga. Around the same time she joined Dance For Change as the Artistic Director in NYC, which uses dance to attack injustice in the world. She danced with Jessica Ray in Dance Into Deliverance for three years. In 2012 she spent three months in India teaching dance and life skills to impoverished people affected by leprosy.
She now resides in Australia where she is studying Dance Ministry at Hillsong International Leadership College.
