For as long as she can remember, Kathryn has had two great passions: Dance and People. As a shy kid, she discovered that dance allowed her to express herself without having to speak. Kathryn’s passion for people developed while reading everything she could get her hands on. She loved the unique characters and amazing cultures that existed in books. Kathryn’s passions have led her across the US and around the world, learning and teaching many diverse dance forms. She recently spent two and a half years in Southeast Asia as a dance instructor- teaching ballroom dance in exchange for learning local movement forms.
With a firm belief that dance can change lives and connect diverse groups of people, Kathryn is driven to share her passion with everyone from first time movers to long time enthusiasts. She holds a masters degree in Dance Anthropology and researches cultural dances- everything from hip hop to cheerleading to classical Cambodian dance. Kathryn has worked with wedding couples in the US, UK, and Southeast Asia, and particularly enjoys being a part of the planning for such a meaningful event in people’s lives. She is so excited to be a part of the Duet team, sharing the joy of dance!
Kathryn has a weakness for good books and fuzzy socks. She has been known to spend an entire weekend lost in a novel, without thought for laundry or the dirty dishes in her sink.
