Katie started dancing ballet at age 8 with the On Broadway Dance Center of Coal City, IL. Throughout middle school and high school, Katie was a part of the On Broadway Dancers company, in which she performed for many college basketball half-time shows and street festivals, including the Taste of Chicago. As a student at DePaul University, Katie stopped dancing for awhile. However, after experiencing a flamenco dance performance in Madrid, realized that she needed to start dancing again - and never stop. Katie loves how dance can connect people. Most recently, she has developed an interest in learning ballroom dance.
