Katherine loves to teach dance to children of all ages and abilities and this is her thirteenth year of sharing the love of Ballet with her students. As a dancer, Katherine trained at the International School of Ballet, McDonald Wilson Dance Academy and Alberta Ballet. In 2010, she graduated from Mount Royal University with a degree in Psychology and began working as a child aide for children with special needs as part of a Specialized Services Team. Katherine completed the Royal Academy of Dance Certificate in Ballet Teaching Studies in 2012 and is a registered teacher with the Royal Academy of Dance. In 2010, she received the Heather Simpson Memorial Award which allowed her to enhance her continuing professional education and continues to attend teaching courses such as Dancelife, En Avant and the Dance Teacher Expo. In 2016 Katherine completed her certification in Progressing Ballet Technique and is excited to incorporate these exercises in her Ballet classes! Katherine enjoys helping her students to grow and develop each class, by focusing on technique, posture and placement while ensuring that her students feel nurtured and comfortable. She is very excited to be a part of the Soul To Sole faculty again this year and is looking forward to seeing her returning students and meeting new ones!
