Prior to her dance training through the Royal Academy’s Musical Theatre course, Kat danced at Pauline Walker’s school and also under the instruction of Deborah Maguire and Sarah Muskett.
Kat is no longer actively auditioning and, instead, is focusing on her own performance projects and on the progress of the students she teaches, both at BSPA, at various schools across Belfast, and privately.
Kat is passionate about the performing arts and strives to motivate her students to work hard, grow their talents, become the best that they can be and, above all, to enjoy the process. Her hope is to inspire and encourage the artists and musical theatre lovers of the future.
