Madame Chocolate

    Since coming to America in 1999, apart from her busy family life, Catherine has created the clown/chef character 'Madame Chocolat' designed initially to entertain children at their birthday parties - now also a popular stage act. She founded and performs in the outlandish, harmonic Christmas caroling group 'The Off their Jingle Bell Rockers' Most recently she co-created and teaches the 'parent and me' dance class BoogieMama's. She fully believes that necessity is the mother of invention - without the time constraints that motherhood brings she would be less likely to have created such interesting and diverse occupations!
