Katie (Tap / Office Manager)
Katie is originally from Michigan. She started dancing at the young age of 5. In high school she was competitive in dance, baton, and poms. She also studied piano and percussion, and was part of the drumline. At the age of 15, she auditioned for her first theatre dance show at Lansing Community College. That’s when she fell in love with the stage. She spent the next 4 years performing in every dance show that the college put on. Winning herself a scholarship to that college, she studied modern, ballet, jazz and tap. She won parts such as duets, solos, and student choreographer. She graduated with an Associate’s Degree in Dance Career.
After graduating, she moved to Orlando, Florida and danced for the American Gladiator’s Dinner Theatre as well as the character dance shows at Universal Studios Florida. She then toured with Sesame Street Live. Returning to Michigan she danced for the modern dance company, Happendance, and was head coach for the Okemos High School dance team.
She took a break from dance and moved to Colorado. She couldn’t stay away from dance though. She started taking classes again and landed a spot as a dancer on The Belles Performance Team, which lead her to a place with Rocky Mountain Rollergirls Pep Squad for 5 years. She took a little more time off to have her daughter Luxe, but continued to tap dance through it all. She continues to study Tap under former Broadway performer, Gene “Meanfeet” GeBauer.
