“What we really love about Kat is that she has been very accessible to the students regardless of her commercial tv and musical theatre success. Not only does she come from a technical approach, she really challenges the mindset and realities of what it means to be an artist in a holistic approach. Mind and body. And on top of that, genuine and approachable!”

“Thank you for your inspiring workshop for our Year 5 and Year 6 students, your session was outstanding.
The students were engaged and entertained listening to you talk about your experiences, about how you came from humble beginnings, the challenges you have encountered along the way, and your perseverance to get to where you are now. There was a buzz from the students after your visit, eager to start their mood boards just as you had shown them.
Thanks again, the feedback from the students was overwhelmingly positive, you have really motivated them to start moving towards defining their dreams and making their dreams a reality.”

DANCE AND MUSICAL THEATRE ACADEMY
“The Rockhampton Grammar School Dance Council, representing The Rockhampton Grammar School Dance and Musical Theatre Academy, were incredibly lucky to have secured Kat Hoyos for our inaugural aDvANCE Summer School which was held in Rockhampton from 8-11 January 2018.
Kat spent four days working with students aged from 8 years upwards in three levels of musical theatre workshops (junior, intermediate, senior). She had a wonderful rapport with the students and brought an amazing skill set and knowledge base to the workshops. The students loved working with her and her vitality and excitement to work with the students was wonderful.
The students gained so much from working with Kat in various styles of musical theatre and enjoyed the experience immensely. We highly recommend Kat for workshops and summer schools and can’t wait to invite her back again in future years to work with our performers, the stars of tomorrow.”

“I have learnt so much from Kat, its indescribable. The amount of experience and knowledge she has to share is so valuable. I had absolutely no idea about anything to do with acting, castings or filming and now I feel so much more confident and assertive in all areas. She has truly expanded my way of thinking outside of the box and gave personal feedback and pointers, which was much appreciated considering it’s very rare these days. Would highly recommend to anyone who is thinking of getting started or is getting serious with acting to learn from Kat!!”
