Cheska began her dance career in Paris with a French opera company after studying at the Conservatoire. She moved to New York when she was offered her first associate directors role with an experimental physical theatre company. She returned to London 9 years later to train in classical acting at Drama Centre, where she was able to hone her movement skills at the Boris Shchukin Theatre Institute in Moscow as part of an international exchange programme.
She now works as a movement director: in film, theatre, opera and the contemporary art world. She teaches Movement and Ballet for various Drama Schools in the UK and Australia, oversees an outreach ballet project, coaches acting and movement for private clients alongside teaching yoga.
Cheska is currently researching new movement practices for actors, in Australia, taking into consideration and combining the most up to date knowledge in the fields of neurology, movement repatterning and fitness training, in order to bring modern movement training inline with the industry's needs.
