We value human connection and the creative power of learning together through play, partner work, and individual introspection.

Read what our students, their families, and partners think about how we're doing:

"My 11-year-old daughter absolutely adores Martial Arts classes with Bo! His classes blend martial arts, movement exploration, mindfulness, playfulness, and intense physical workout. His instruction is playful and thoughtful, without rigidity or criticism. Our kiddo has fun, genuinely enjoys the physical challenges presented, and looks forward to classes weekly. It’s improving her body awareness, strength, and confidence. Bo is a delight, and I highly recommend his classes!"

Maggie F, 

Mom, Madison WI

Class: OpenMAT Youth

"Catrina's Ballet class is excellent. She is professional and warm-hearted all at the same time. She REALLY knows her stuff and is equally concerned with each and every student regardless of level, age, condition or body shape."

Anne A, 

Founder - Posturally, Madison WI

Class: Adult Ballet Joy

"We're just a few classes in with one of Bo's Grasshoppers class and are already so pleased and impressed with the effort he makes to understand and support each child's individual strengths and challenges. He really understands kids and runs this program with a calm generosity."

Erin O'Brien, 

Mom / Policy Programs Director Wisconsin Wetlands Association

Class: Grasshoppers Ninja

"The students at NCDC were lucky to have the opportunity to train with Ms Catrina in ballet. Her knowledge, kindness and process allowed them to progress technically in a supportive and nurturing environment.

Through her work, the students gained a deeper understanding on how to increase their alignment, flexibility and overall strength safely."

Jen Bradford, 

Founder / Executive Director of Northern California Dance Conservatory

"I'm grateful for finding Kine Oasis and Bo's tumbling and groundwork class. I've now attended three classes and looking forward to more.

The movements I've learned are especially valuable for an older athlete that wants to stay active and injury free."

Trevor Koss, Madison WI 

Adult Tumbling & Groundwork

"The positive impact that Bo has had with our students takes your breath away. Some of our students have significant challenges with trust, boundaries, confidence, etc.

Bo is able to help them see things in a different way. His teachings provide life-long tools that students can draw from as they face obstacles. Bo truly is a gift in our community!"

Debbie Caperton,

SOS Learning Lab, LLC

"Returning to ballet after a 15 year break, I was very glad to find Catrina’s class. Challenging while also supportive, she’s been understanding and has offered great insight on accommodating an aging dancer’s body."

Karl Broman,

Ballet Student, Madison, WI

"I really appreciate the Ballet classes Catrina teaches. She is great at curating combinations that meet me where I am at and challenge me to grow!"

Annika K,

Ballet Student, Madison, WI

"Bo has had a great impact on the students at the Northern Michigan Partnership. I highly recommend him.

He draws respect from his students and captivates their interest while at the same time maintaining high expectations."

Chris Davis,

TCAPS (Traverse City Area Public Schools)

"Catrina's Awareness Through Movement classes offer pathways to increased body knowledge and a harmonious and peaceful mind-body connection."

Cynthia Drayer,

Former School Director, The School of Sacramento Ballet

"I am loving this adult ballet class, which is accessible to a variety of levels. I have taken a number of ballet classes before as an adult beginner but never found one that allowed me to build progressively on skills in a sustainable way.

This class feels like the appropriate level of challenge, and Catrina has a great understanding of limitations that bodies may face when learning ballet as adults!"

Sarah-Louise Raillard,

Adult Ballet Student, Madison WI

"My 11-year-old daughter recently started a martial arts class on Mondays at 4pm at the Madison Circus Space (Winnebago St), and she LOVES it.

The instructor's philosophy blends with our homeschool philosophy beautifully, inviting playfulness and curiosity. It's part martial arts, part movement exploration/dance/, part mindfulness, part playful sparring, part intense physical workout. "

Maggie F,

Parent, Madison WI

"Ballet is such a beautiful art but so very challenging for adult beginner students like myself.

Catrina helps us by breaking down the steps into manageable pieces, and all within the safety zone of our physical abilities. We are learning and having lots of fun at the same time.

The meditative quality in in the music and the movements is amazing. I look forward to Catrina’s classes.”

Chifan C.B.

Adult Ballet Student

"I've been in classes now for a few months, and the progress I've achieved has been impressive.

Great teaching and a fun atmosphere, can't really beat that.”

Dakota C.

Adult Tumbling Student, Madison WI

"My son took a short course with Bo and didn't want it to end. This was his first introduction to body mind awareness, which I think is a vital skill in this day of over-stimulation.

Although my son hasn't quite mastered the meditation portion, I appreciate the applicable skills Bo taught as well as the blast the kids had rolling and jumping!"



"Catrina Choate's calm, soothing voice carries within it a quiet strength that asks questions and gently encourages the listening dancer to tune in, slow down, and listen to the wisdom of one's own body.

The Feldenkrais lessons offered by Catrina are well chosen and present the participant with the opportunity to go even deeper into the realm of the senses in order to experience the fascinating process of what to means to learn, to play, to fail, and to begin again, in the delightful dance of becoming one's best partner and ultimately, one's own teacher."

Alice Brydges,

Founding member of Alonzo King's Lines Ballet San Francisco

Feldenkrais Practitioner / Tai Chi Instructor

"I can't say enough about how passionate Bo is about his trade and how talented he is in sharing his skills with others. He is very hard working, dedicated, and reliable.

It has been a pleasure working with him and seeing the amazing growth in each of the children he has trained."

Rose Marie Zivkovich,

Director, Northern Michigan Partnership/TCAPS

"Catrina brings professionalism, somatic awareness and individual attention to each of us enrolled in her Adult Ballet Classes.

Her concentration and sharing of the importance of muscle awareness is much appreciated in dealing with the various levels of training and experience in our class.

By calmly and patiently instructing and correcting us we learn to apply and benefit from her expertise and attention.”

Dale E. Turner,

Senior Adult Ballet Student

"It was a pleasure to have our child attend Grasshoppers martial Art class. The teacher, Bo, has a unique way of training the students by making them understand the technique and encouraging movements that are in-sync with mind-body-brain system. This is a holistic way for teaching anything.

As a teacher, Bo demonstrates high skills, in-depth knowledge of his subjects, yet, maintaining a playful atmosphere and friendly approach! We wish Grasshoppers club the best!"

Kuldeepa VM,

Mom & Ascending Aesthetic Founder

"I have been training with Bo for a couple of years. He is one of the best instructors I have trained with. He has a deep knowledge of Aikido and his techniques are effective. He is able to demonstrate and teach fundamentals of Aikido in clear and understandable terms, to students of all levels. My understanding of Aikido has significantly improved under his tutelage.

I have also assisted Bo with some of his kids classes. He has that unique talent of being able to engage kids and work with them on their level. Keeping 8-10 year olds focused for a two hour Aikido class is not something for the timid to attempt, and Bo is good at it."

Dan Kaiser,

Northwest Michigan Aikido Club

"When I first started Martial Arts, my Goju-Ryu Sensei said two things to me. The first was that IF I stuck to Martial Arts training for six months, then Martial Arts will stick to me my entire life. I suppose I never quit and I hope you'll make this practice YOURS too; a foundation of resilience and power to rely on for your entire life."



Grasshoppers Club

Where Roots & Wings grow.

Our practice uses a mentoring, modern and empowering approach to Mental, Emotional, and Physical Training using Martial Arts Principles of Conflict Resolution, Mutual Respect, and Teamwork.

Our classes transform into playful learning journeys where skills become the building blocks of self-control, self-determination, and self-confidence.

As opposed to the rigidity of traditional martial arts, at The Grasshoppers Club freedom of expression through movement is cherished and encouraged and a sense of empowering arises from the confidence of progressively building skills that will last a lifetime.

Grasshoppers classes are extremely fluid and responsive to minute changes in the kids' state and the overall group atmosphere.
