Katy Dance Instructor at Karen's Dance Studio


Miss Katy began dancing at the age of three under direction of Karen Drouin. She has always had a love and passion for dance. Katy is a graduate of Stephens College where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance. During her time at Stephens, Katy studied classical ballet with program coordinator Elizabeth Hartwell and Humphrey-Weidman/Limon modern technique with Deborah Carr. Additionally, she has studied Jump Rhythm® Technique with Visiting Guest Artist Brandi Coleman as well as tap, hip-hop and several World Dance forms. She has dreams of pursuing Dance/Movement Therapy.

Katy is excited to expand her dance knowledge at KDS. She is very excited to return to the Joplin area and teaching at the studio where it all started for her.
