Born in 1943 in Budapest and educated in Paris and Amsterdam, classical dancer Juliette Kando tours the world with the Dutch National Ballet and the Deutsche Oper Berlin. In 1968 she settles in London to study choreology, defined by Rudolph Benesh as “The aesthetic and scientific study of human movement by means of Benesh dance and movement notation”. She becomes a Fellow of the Institute of Choreology in 1972. As a choreologist, she stages the works of Bronislava Nijinska (the great Nijinsky’s sister) for the Paris Opera Ballet, Dance Theatre of Harlem in New York and other companies.
Once a mother of three, Juliette stops touring and joins New Dance Magazine as co-editor, writer, and dance critic before opening the Every Body Dance and Movement Studios in London and on the Isle of Wight. The Benesh Institute is now part of the the Royal Academy of Dance.
With 2 books published by Harpercollins, Juliette Kando still teaches “Taking Responsibility for Your own Health with Yoga and Body Awareness”.
Juliette now lives in rural Andalusia on a 4 acres piece of land, often full of children and animals. Here she likes to practice yoga , write, draw, design, work in the garden, and make videos. Juliette joined Al Limon Ecolodge as a consultant in 2003.
