Born in the Lake District, Katie started dancing at the age of 3 at her local dance school. In 2016 she became a Ballet West Associate and has performed with the English Youth Ballet and participated in the Royal Ballet spring intensive at White Lodge.
In 2019 Katie moved to Scotland to train full-time at Ballet West and 12 months later she auditioned successfully for the BA Modern Ballet course at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
During this time, Katie was accepted onto the Scottish Ballet Youth Exchange programme and had the opportunity to work with Move NYC and Maleek Washington, which concluded in 2022 with performances in both New York and Birmingham. She has also worked with choreographers Madeline Squire in Scottish Ballet’s Moving Minds piece ‘Tether‘ and with John McFall in his new work ‘Unbound’.
Following graduation Katie has been accepted onto Northern Ballet’s Professional Graduate Programme, and she is excited for the opportunity to work with dancers from the Northern Ballet company.
