Katie is a second-year Ballet major in the School of Dance and attended the high school program for 4 years. She is originally from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania but has loved calling UNCSA her home for the past 5 years.
What brought you to UNCSA?
I felt I needed to leave my old studio in order to be challenged more, and my previous dance teacher was a graduate who told me this is where I needed to go. I attended the summer intensive and fell in love after working with the teachers and seeing the campus. I knew I needed to be a student here!
What is your favorite spot on campus and why?
I love the dance studios (obviously) because that's where all of the magic happens. My most memorable memories are there, from all of the ah-ha moments to breaking down in tears. Both of which are important in developing as an artist. But, I also love reading in Daniels Plaza when the weather's nice. There's nothing more relaxing than sitting with a book under a tree when it's a beautiful spring day!
