Andromeda Graziano

The language of movement is where I feel most at home.

Born in London of Sicilian descent and brought up bi-lingually, Andromeda trained in classical ballet at the Royal Ballet School Junior Associates, Merle Park Studios, and Stella Mann. Her contemporary dance training started with a BA (Hons) in Dance and Drama at Middlesex University, and a 1 Year Special Certificate in Contemporary Dance and Choreography at London Contemporary Dance School. An award from the Prince's Trust and Pépinières Européennes pour Jeunes Artistes to create a piece for the Ballet of Zaragoza, Spain, launched her career as a choreographer.


After ​performing for Janet Smith and Dancers, Tamara McLorg and Ian Woolley she co-formed 'White Monkey Trip', a contemporary dance company that toured the London contemporary dance circuit and returned to Middlesex University's Dance Department as production manager for their post graduate performances at The Lilian Baylis Theatre, Sadler's Wells, London.

She worked as the administrator for: Palace Opera with the London Concertante Orchestra with performances at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, a full U.K. tour, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival; and 'By Means of Music', a memorial concert for Stanley Kubrick, with performances by the London Concertante Orchestra at the Barbican Theatre, London, and the Symphony Orchestra of Milan Giuseppe Verdi at the Auditorium di Milano, Italy.

​​​

Attending her first Pilates class aged 18 and hooked on the veritable machines, she studied Pilates Based Body Awareness with the formidable Christine Hocking, and influenced by her method and passion, has taught Pilates based classes ever since.​ She is also a Somatic Movement Educator, certified Practitioner and Teacher of Body-Mind Centering®.

​​

In 2022 she returned to dance and choreography with her dance film 'Leap of Faith' in collaboration with Jack Elliott Hobbs. She also returned as the administrator for New Palace Opera’s 'A Kind Man', a new opera composed by Jonathan Finney based on Dame Susan Hill's novel of the same name with performances at London's Hoxton Hall with the London Concertante Orchestra.

In 2023, diagnosed and treated successfully for endometrial cancer, she took 6 months leave and has returned to choreography full of effervescence for her new body and a new vocabulary of movement.

She is currently collaborating with choreographer Ian Woolley on a solo to Greig’s ‘Death of Aase’ and is co-producer for his film ‘the Golden feather’, set to Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons with electronicgypsy film productions.

In 2024/25 she will create three new pieces with concert pianist Raul Jimenez to works by Schumann, Ravel and Bach.

Always inspired by dance, music, film, art, and nature, family is key. An avid cook, keen gardener and painter, and lover of animals, travel, and French literature, the beach is where she finds her feet.
