Katie Smith

A native of Peotone, Katie began dancing at the Peotone Park District when she was 11 and quickly fell in love with the art. Since then, Katie has trained in many styles including; ballet, pointe, modern, tap, jazz, hip hop, musical theatre, and character. After attempts to find a more mainstream profession Katie decided to pursue her career in dance. With the guidance of Judith Chitwood, Paula Frasz, Autumn Eckman, Morgan Fogarty, Brittany Keefe, Matthew Keefe, and Brian Carey Chung, Katie received her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Dance Performance from Northern Illinois University in 2014. During her time at NIU, Katie performed in both faculty and student showcases. Her favorite works include; “Hand Jive” from Grease, Tap Performance from Anything Goes, Pendulum, What You Know, I Find it Hard to Say, Ghost, and woes of a woman. With over ten years of experience choreographing, Katie also produced works for Northern Dance Theatre’s student showcases every year while at NIU. Choreography includes; You’re Here… But You’re Not, Beauty Blindfolded, Just Be, Wait For Me, and Bloodstream. Having originally danced at Main Street Dance Academy at 16, Katie is excited to return as a member of the faculty and to work with their talented students.
