After graduation she headed to Mankato, MN where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Dance at Minnesota State University.

She had the pleasure of performing at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC for The American College Dance Festival. While studying in Mankato she began her role as an Instructor and choreographer for a local dance studio, as well taking on the position as Head Dance Team Coach for the W.E.M. Dance Team for two years. After graduation in 2010 she ventured to Minneapolis where she continued sharing her love of dance with students through her energetic choreography and classes. Katie also performed with companies, such as Valley Fair, Unspeakable Dance, M-SHE Productions, Soul 2 Sole Dance Conversion and Borealis Dance.

Her passion for dance has grown immensely over the years and she is dedicated to pushing students to unlock their fullest potential.
