Ms. Kate (RAD RTS)
Ms. Kate has been a student of classical ballet for 17 years. She is an experienced and qualified dancer and teacher. She recognized as a young performer that she wanted most to pass on her love for dance as a teacher. She has studied advanced vocational ballet with the Royal Academy of Dance, and has a background with the Royal Conservatory of Music in piano.
Kate has completed her Certificate of Ballet Teaching Studies through the Royal Academy of Dance’s Faculty of Education and seeks to extend her teaching education through professional development courses with the Royal Academy of Dance and through outside sources, particularly in relation to inclusive arts and accommodating young artists with a variety of abilities and backgrounds. Kate is continuing her education at the University of Waterloo, where she is pursuing an honours degree in therapeutic recreation, with the goal of combining dance and therapeutic recreation in a specialized program.
Kate has been teaching students from preschool to adult for many years, and is really looking forward to joining the OSD staff this year! Kate's positive and friendly manner brings out the best in her students. Her passion and enthusiasm for sharing the art of ballet is truly inspirational.
