Her earlier performances include the Havana International Jazz Festival with Cuban stars such as Bobby Carcases and Chucho Valdez and the Bienal Internacional de la Habana with Afro-Cuban music and performance icon Mercedita Valdez and visual artist Manuel Mendive. Eager to spread the roots of Cuban Dance, she is now the co-founder of Afro-Timba, a dance fitness program that she is currently touring nationwide along with her on training dance program 'Oricha Therapy' and 'Kati's Cuban Dance Map.' Kati is known for her unique teaching techniques, her vibrant energy and flavor on the dance floor.
