Katya is 14 years old and a freshman in high school. She started off as a gymnast and dancer but had to eventually make a choice. She began taking classes at the Salt Creek Ballet at age 4. In 2009, she began dancing competitively with Expression Dance Company. She also took Miss Kate’s Friday classes and fell in love with Miss Kate’s choreography. Katya was inspired to dance by her mom who danced her entire life. She would like to thank Miss Kate and all her past instructors for making her a better and more disciplined dancer.
