Kate discovered the value of Pilates in dance conditioning. She has danced her whole life and continues to teach tap, jazz, lyrical and modern. Studying with Angelie Melzer has helped her incorporate Pilates principles into dance classes as well as her own practice. Kate is continuing her training with Angelie to increase her knowledge and capabilities. Teaching is a passion of Kate’s and she wants to help others achieve their goals. She has taught dance since 1999 and Pilates since the spring of 2012. Kate is also a graduate student at Washington State University, studying environmental science. Pilates remains a consistent source of physical and mental stability from the daily pressures of a busy life. It is Kate’s hope to share the stability and flexibility Pilates offers with others.
