Her approach to the creative process is one that cultivates her team’s imagination and drives inspired success. She is generous with her words and is extremely sensitive to the human condition. Her work overflows with emotion always designed specifically for each project. Simply put, Cati Jean’s choreography is sincere and never falls short of capturing the very heartbeat of the human soul." NICK DRAGO, Assistant to Cati on Kylie Minogue 's world Tour 2011 "Aphrodite"

"This sentiment couldn't resinate more for an artist. Living in Los Angeles for over a decade I've noticed amongst the Hollywood jungle, few true artists not only survive, but thrive. I've had the unique opportunity to watch, experience and assist the work firsthand from one of the most spectacular choreographic artists of my career. Cati Jean fuses beauty, art, sensuality, fashion and musicality in her brilliant work. Filled with emotion and story lines, her pieces thrive on dazzling detail. In addition to her magnificent movement, Cati brings first class professionalism to her work. Often arriving early and staying late, her integrity and strong work ethic is ever present. Working along side her was enjoyable and satisfying, as everyone was given ultimate respect and kindness, which in turn fueled a richly creative environment. In a time of quantity over quality, it is rare to witness authenticity and superb quality. With Cati it is a guarantee. "
