My name is Katie, and I have a passion for helping people, being authentic, and finding what makes me feel alive! Of course, I am an animal lover too : ).
I've been dancing since I was about 2 years old, having a year here and there off for injuries. Now I'm back in full swing teaching and loving it! I've trained in Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Jazz, Acrobatics, Modern, Contemporary, Lyrical, Musical Theatre, Irish step, Belly dance, and African tribal. I have 15 years of experience teaching a mix of all things listed, and have 2 years experience coaching Gymnastics and choreographing floor exercise and beam routines.
I also am a graduate with a Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have utilized my passion for helping people and my experience being able to express myself through dance and have begun the processes of marrying the two together by working with developmentally delayed and/or children with intellectual disabilities through dance utilizing my schooling and training in the therapy world to assist me.
I offer one on one and group sessions in both dance and mindfulness, mood regulation, anger management, communication skills, and other grounding techniques.
I look forward to seeing you on the dance floor or in one of my skills classes : )
With Love and Light,
