Anna Katherine Freund was raised in North Carolina. Her childhood was filled with trips to the mountains for hiking, outdoor activities and watching her grandparents practice ballroom dancing. Their love for both nature and dance was passed down to Katherine’s mother, and to Katherine who danced as soon as she could walk.
Along with her technique and choreography training at UNCSA, Katherine has also had opportunities to travel to Chicago, Illinois and Portland, Oregon for summer intensives at Hubbard Street and Northwest Dance Project. Outside of dance, Katherine is interested in photography and visual art and is currently working on an online yoga certification from Yoga Alliance.
