Katherine was in the Omega Chapter of Alpha Phi Sorority at UT Austin and is currently a member of the Alpha Phi Dallas and Suburban Community Alumnae Chapter. For her full-time job, Katherine works at Charles Schwab Headquarters in Enterprise and Operational Risk Management. Since the age of three, Katherine has trained in ballet, jazz, modern, and contemporary dance techniques. In addition to dance, Katherine studied the piano and violin for nine years. 

Katherine’s love and passion for dance and music started at an early age training at local Dallas dance studios including Dallas Metropolitan Ballet, Dallas Ballet Center, Powerhouse of Dance, Highland Park Dance, Next Step Dance, Dallas Black Dance Theatre, and Ballet Academy of Texas. In her formative years of dance education, Katherine had the privilege of working with various choreographers and training at the professional dance companies of American Ballet Theatre, School of American Ballet, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Ballet West, Sidra Bell New York, and the Dutch National Ballet in Amsterdam. 

At UT Austin, Katherine participated in three years of Fundamental Projects in Dance Performance and Repertoire, which provided opportunities to collaborate with outside choreographers and in-house faculty in preparation for main-stage productions throughout the fall and spring academic semesters. Katherine was selected to work with notable choreographers including Hubbard Street Dance Chicago dancer and choreographic fellow Rena Butler, B. Moore Dance Artistic Director Bridget Moore, Juilliard graduate and choreographer Madison Hicks, and former Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater soloist and choreographer Kirven Douthit-Boyd for week-long artistic residencies.

Katherine joined 6 o’Clock Dance Theatre as the company’s Website Manager and as a Dancer in December 2022. 

Katherine’s strong background in classical dance technique, music, and information system technologies contributes to her versatility as a business and artist professional. She values discipline, integrity, and autonomy in work processes to enact positive change in her communities. Katherine strives to connect audiences with the power of movement and the healing it provides.
