Kathryn has taught in many studios in the Toronto area and was the Director of the Junior Ballet Program at the Ancaster School of Dance from 1999-2001. She has been the Director of Ballet at Dimensions in Dance since the fall of 1999 and has successfully entered students in all levels of the Royal Academy of Dance ballet exams. Her students have gained success at regional and national dance competitions in Canada and the United States. Kathryn has developed and conducts classical ballet classes for home school students in Brantford under the TEACH Home Educators of Brant. She has taught ballet classes for the Kitchener-Waterloo Skating Club summer session and continues to teach off ice training classes for novice to senior level pairs.
Finding great reward in sharing her passion and knowledge of dance with children and adults, Kathryn sets a high standard of technique in the studio. Many of her students have pursued dance at the post secondary and professional level gaining acceptance at the National Ballet School of Canada, Quinte Ballet School, Ryerson University, York University, and George Brown College. As well, some have received recognition in the So You Think You Can Dance Canada finals and top 20 dancers, and contracts with touring shows and cruise lines.
She continues to pursue her dance education through professional development by attending many teachers’ workshops and seminars held by the National Ballet School, Ballet Magnificat, Dance Ad Deum, and the Royal Academy of Dance. Kathryn is both honoured and thrilled to be a part of this cutting edge studio and the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of students.
