Pioneer of Black Dance
At the age of four, Katherine was enthralled by the dancers and actors of the theater and daily life of its people. Deciding to focus her life’s work on the origins of African dance, Katherine began a journey to learn how dances are tied to the culture of Africa. Through outreach programs, dancing on stage, and teaching Katherine has used her passion for African dance to educate and help hundreds of people, regardless of race or social status.
