About Katie...

Picture
Katie believe's that performing arts is the perfect tool for adults and children to gain insights into worlds and topics that they may otherwise never get to explore.

Her formal training is in Contemporary Circus and Physical Performance, specialising in how to integrate circus skills such as juggling, acro-balance or aerial into performance by combining it with dance and theatre practices. She has a background in musical theatre and dance including contemporary dance, ballet and tap, jazz and cheerleading.
In May 2016 Katie set up her own theatre company ‘Wild Light’, who are currently focussing on taking highly skilled interactive performances to Primary School children who may not get access to the arts on a regular basis. Wild Light has a focus on using performance as a positive tool for social, cultural and political development. Alongside this they lead specialised workshops for children and continued professional development training for teachers, with the aim to encourage schools to consider the benefits of having dance and performing arts as an integral part of their curriculum.
