She holds a PhD from the University of Roehampton (UK) and an MA in Dance Studies (University of Surrey), supported by a scholarship by “Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Organisation”. She is also a graduate of the State School of Dance (Distinction) and the Department of Education, University of Crete.
Steriani worked as Research Associate for the Kalamata International Dance Festival, the “Isadora and Raymond Duncan” Dance Research Centre and independent projects and teaches dance history at professional dance schools, university courses and seminars.
