Meet Katie Rowan; Dancer, teacher, people-person. A new addition to the umbrella family, we are thrilled to have Katie join us for our virtual May show!
Who are you? Describe yourself.
My name is Katie Rowan. I'm living in my hometown of Canyon, Texas with the love of my life. Having trained in dance and theatre since I was eight-years-old, I've developed a passion for both dance performance and teaching. I've been teaching competition and recreational dance with The Edge, Amarillo for 4 years while obtaining my degrees in communication studies as well as dance. A recent graduate of West Texas A&M, I am currently working in personal development as well as promoting myself as a teacher, choreographer, and artist.
What's your medium or art of choice?
Dance and theatre. I have a passion for teaching and creating choreography, instilling the value of technical training and artistic expression in young people. I've also discovered my love of artistic journalling or bullet-journalling in the past four years. I often share my artistic journaling on my social platforms and enjoy consulting with people who want to organize and plan their lives with a fun flare!
Do you remember the moment you wanted to make art? If so, describe it. Or just tell us how long you've been doing what you do.
I've always enjoyed dabbling in the arts, drawing pictures of horses when I was little, obsessing over the architecture of New York City, and singing show tunes since I watched my first Disney movie. As far as my focus, I've been dancing for eighteen years, most of my life. I first cultivated my passion for collaboration and performing but lately my passion has shifted to creating choreography and technical instruction. I have been teaching for about 4 years now and it's my new and greatest love.
Where do you find inspiration?
People. I love connecting with people and seeing how they live, what they love, learning what kind of art and connection they need.
