Kate’s class is influenced by various movement practices including release technique, gyrokinesis, and Cunningham technique, with an emphasis on the individuality of the artist. Beginning on the floor, the class develops through a range of exercises which are designed to gradually warm the body and allow creativity. Focus is on awareness to the present moment, whilst also giving participants options to push technique and physicality.
Kate originally trained in Modern Ballet at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, graduating in 2014. After her training in ballet she worked with companies Scottish Ballet and Ballet Ireland.
She began her contemporary practice in 2015 when she embarked on an MA in Trinity Laban, London. Whilst there she performed with Transitions Dance Company, working with a variety of different choreographers, and was a recipient of the Leverhulme Trust Scholarship.
As a freelance artist she has collaborated with various choreographers including Theo Clinkard, Dog Kennel Hill Project, Ohad Naharin (with thanks to Arts Council Ireland), Kerry Nicholls, Diana Loosmore and Ania Straczynska.
In 2018 she began making her own work with funding from Dance Ireland and DLR Co. Council., where she developed her research in time-consciousness within dance. She also has an active teaching practice in both ballet and contemporary, working with a variety of ages.
Her interest in finding different ways to understand the world we live in brought her to her studies in Mathematics with the Open University, where she is currently specialising in quantum and fluid mechanics.
