Katie's passion for tap dance started when she was 5 years old, she enjoyed creating rhythm's and found it came very naturally to her. After seeing the musical Hot Shoe Shuffle, tap soon became her favourite style of dance. Her love of the theatre also started when she attended The Young Set Musical Theatre School run by Babette Langford where she appeared in many theatrical shows and pantomimes in London. After a year of graduating from stage school, Katie decided to move to Australia for a few years. Sadly her performing took a back seat as she pursued a different career path. Her passion for performing never left her and after moving back to the UK for several more years, Katie decided it was time to dust off her tap shoes and start performing again. Katie is very proud of the business she has built entertaining in care homes and has since gone on to perform at a wide variety of events around the UK and even spent a season entertaining the crowds at the famous Covent Garden.
