Bachelor of Dance Royal Academy of Dance Registered Teacher (RAD RTS)
Katie is a passionate dance teacher from Hamilton, New Zealand.
She began ballet at three years old and was soon learning tap, contemporary, jazz and Irish dancing.
At 18 Katie moved to Auckland to study a Bachelor of Dance at AUT University. Here she studied all forms of dance as well as dance education, nutrition and history. She also became a Royal Academy of Dance registered ballet teacher and gained a Solo Diploma in Tap dancing from BAL Australasia.
After graduating, Katie began teaching at a number of dance schools, musical theatre workshops and nurseries across Auckland. She also continued to perform, adding 'West Side Story', ‘Barnum’, 'Thoroughly Modern Millie’ and ‘Chicago’ to her credits.
In 2015 Katie spent some time teaching dance in Tahiti, French Polynesia, which further fuelled her love of teaching. Not ready to settle back in New Zealand she made the move to London and the Little Dance Academy was born.
