Kat was born and raised in the Hykeham (Lincoln) area. As a child she danced at the local private dance school, was involved with LAODS (Mack & Mabel, Anything Goes, Guys & Dolls) as an ensemble member, played electronic keyboard and even had a stint playing the oboe! She studied dance, music and performing arts at the local 6th form before making the move to London.
Kat trained in dance and performing arts at Middlesex University, London. During this time she was asked to work alongside the faculty to audition prospective students. She then went on to study and perform as a dancer/performance artist in New York City, USA. Kat has worked extensively as a choreographer, teacher and creative leader of performance throughout Lincolnshire, working with a very wide variety of age groups and organisations. She is now a part time lecturer at the University of Lincoln as well as an adult group exercise instructor.
Kat is drawing on all her skills from her previous experiences to allow the students at Stagecoach Hykeham to flourish and thoroughly enjoy their time at the school.
