Our School

More than just dance

The great dream of Marbella Dance School began when Caterina moved and settled in Marbella in 2007, Caterina started alone with two students in a small room, but due to her effort and passion for dance, little by little the number of students was increasing, and with it also increased the variety of styles and the equipment that nowadays forms MDS.

Caterina Chisesi is the director of Marbella Dance School and has always known that she would bring her own philosophy of life to school. For MDS the talent is only 1% and the rest is only work, sacrifice and discipline but above all passion, a passion that in the school they try to teach all their students through the art of dance.

Of course, we know that all this is hard but if you combine it with a family environment full of love we have proven that the love for dance comes alone

According to our philosophy, dance should be practiced by everyone who is passionate about it, that’s why our prices are affordable for everyone who wants it.

At MDS we consider ourselves a unique, professional and fun school where you can learn all kinds of styles at all levels.

The Russian methods are very rigorous and with high standards, the students of Caterina’s classes are also prepared and trained so that all their students far surpass all the exams they perform to subsequently dedicate themselves to ballet or to any discipline at professional level, if This is the path they wish to follow or of course if they just want to learn.
