I have worked within the performing arts
industry for the last 15 years
I have always been passionate about working with young people and since settling back in Devon 3 years ago have set up my own dance company ‘Step Up & Dance’ with my main aim to develop dance workshops for children of all ages and abilities within primary and secondary schools.

I am constantly developing new material for my workshops, shows and displays that I believe my students will enjoy and I will continue to get youngsters active and share my love for the performing arts.

“Having Katie teach dance in school is brilliant. She delivers lessons that are a fantastic and fun approach to the curriculum. It’s great to see the children, even the shy ones, really joining in and developing their movement and performance skills.”
Amanda Pow, PE co-ordinator, The Beacon CE Primary School.
“Katie came to our school to deliver Street Dance sessions to our pupils across KS1 and KS2. All of our children had a great time, finding the sessions fun, very active and purposeful.
The sessions culminated in a short performance in front of family and friends. The children relished the opportunity to show off their skills.
I believe these sessions offered an opportunity for both boys and girls of all abilities to enjoy working and performing together as a group.”
Jacky Pinder-White, P.E. Co-ordination, Drakes Primary School
